History[edit]

Super Talent Technology was established in 2005 by Abraham Ma. An ISO 9001 certified company, Super Talent is based in Silicon Valley.

The company's products include solid-state drives (SSDs), USB flash drives, and flash media cards. In June 2011, they introduced the first USB 3.0 flash drive using a SandForce controller supporting speeds over 200 MB/s.[1]

Super Talent sells USB 2.0 devices as well as USB 3.0 products. The latter includes two drives Microsoft certified for Windows To Go, the USB 3.0 Express RC4 and USB 3.0 Express RC8.[2] Super Talent also offers a large variety of customizable USB options with a free quote service on their website.

On November 29, 2012, Super Talent's USB 3.0 Express RC8 was Certified for Windows To Go by Microsoft. Certified drives are backed with manufacturer warranties and should continue operating under normal usage.[3] On February 12, 2013, Super Talent's second Windows To Go certified drive was approved by Microsoft, the USB 3.0 Express RC4.[4]

Super Talent Technology holds over 150 patents.[5]
