Faster sustained performance than hard drives ; Perfectly silent during operations ; 1ms response times ; Lighter, far more compact than hard drives ; Twice as many fit in a case ; Great for laptops ; Best value for cost

SSD modules (and USB drives) use non-volatile ICs called Flash NAND which doesn’t require power to hold data. When your system is powered off, it will reliably store and retain any data you've added to it. NAND producers are few which accounts for the...

Product Specifications

Adding an SSD to a desktop already using a standard hard disk drive is a smart and efficient way to upgrade. Transferring the operating system and applications from the HDD to the SSD allows the SSD to be used as a bootable drive that takes full advantage of the flash-based technology. For notebooks, SSDNow drives are a perfect replacement for hard drives resulting in faster, more reliable performance. Making this change will improve a notebook's efficiency in a wide range of tasks, from booting up to running the most robust operating system and demanding applications. SSDNow uses a standard SATA interface but, unlike a regular HDD, SSD is very rugged and built with no moving parts, making it ideal for power users and road warriors who push the limits of their notebooks. Other benefits include reduced power usage, less noise and less heat generation. SSDNow V Series drive helps organizations of all sizes and consumers enhance the performance of computers with a Serial ATA (SATA) interface. By improving a computer's performance and durability, SSDNow V Series drives help increase productivity, and extend the life of existing computers.
