Mtron burst onto the SSD market in February 2007 - when - amid competing claims from various other oems Mtron launched the fastest 2.5" PATA SSD - with 80MB/s sustained write.

In the same month they placed their first ads here on Mtron advertised here on the mouse site for 15 months and were so successful at attracting oem partners and industry recognition that they didn't need to do any more for a long while.
