EDGE Boost Micro Solid State Drives (SSDs) are designed to be a direct replacement for traditional spinning disk hard drives. The result is a faster, lighter, more durable, and more reliable solution primed to replace outdated hard drives forever. Boost Micro SSDs are both PC and Mac compatible and will work in almost any computer with a Micro SATA interface.
Utilizing the premium SandForce SF-1222 controller, the Boost SSD can achieve ultra fast read and write speeds of up to 280MB/s and 275MB/s respectively. In comparison to hard drives, SSDs can cut system boot times by 50%. 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.
A traditional hard drive can be compared to a car—with so many moving mechanical components constantly in use, parts inevitably wear out over time. With no moving parts inside, Boost SSDs are 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 SSDs, featuring 128-bit AES hardware encryption that secures 100% 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 SSD.
The Boost Micro SSD is quite possibly the best upgrade you will ever make to your system—make the switch from archaic hard drives today.
