The EDGE 480GB Boost Micro SATA 3Gb/s 1.8" Internal Solid State Drive is designed to be a direct replacement for a traditional spinning disk hard drive. The result is a faster, lighter, more durable, and more reliable solution. Both PC and Mac compatible, it will work in almost any computer with a Micro SATA interface.
Utilizing the premium SandForce SF-1222 controller, the Boost Solid State Drive achieves ultra fast read and write speeds up to 280MB/s and 275MB/s respectively. In comparison to hard drives, it can cut system boot times by 50 percent. Fast read/write speeds, coupled with a 50,000 max IOPS rating, provide fantastic performance gains in common tasks such as file transfers and loading software applications. With no moving parts inside, it is more reliable and less susceptible to mechanical failures than hard drives. This also results in longer notebook battery life, lower heat emission, and completely silent operation.
Security is a critical feature of Boost Micro Solid State Drives, featuring 128-bit AES hardware encryption that secures 100 percent of data when enabled. The feature rich SandForce controller comes standard with robust tools such as TRIM, S.M.A.R.T., Garbage Collection, wear leveling, and ECC to promote stability and reliability. SandForce exclusive functions— Durawrite and RAISE—further enhance data efficiency and increase the lifespan of the drive.
