Boot, save, launch, and multi-task faster!
Small, Superfast, & Versatile
Whether you desire a lightning-fast boot drive, a second Solid State Drive-based storage drive, or a SSD cache drive to speed up your primary hard drive, the VisionTek 480GB mSATA SSD is built to deliver reliable, high performance. This ultra-portable, low-power storage solution is one eighth the size of a traditonal 2.5" hard disk drive (HDD), yet because it's engineered with industry-leading DuraClass technologies, the VisionTek mSATA SSD can deliver data rates up to 540MB/s, up to 100x greater data reliability than a costly Enterprise class HDD, and access times up to 50x faster than a conventional HDD. It’s SATA 6G ready, but backward compatible with SATA 3G and 1.5G machines too, making the VisionTek mSATA SSD a versatile storage performance booster for a wide variety of devices.
Speed & Capacity for Desktop
Ideal for ultrabook PCs, the VisionTek mSATA SSD can also be mounted directly to a mSATA interface equipped desktop PC motherboard. Now, instead of using up a drive bay for a 2.5" SSD and having to buy an expensive adapter, you can easily add the VisionTek mSATA SSD as a performance-boosting cache drive to complement an large storage capacity HDD.
VisionTek mSATA SSD Benefits
- No moving parts.
- Silent, cool, energy efficient operation.
- Excellent shock, vibration, and temperature resistance.
- Access time up to 50x faster than HDD.
- Designed to deliver SATA 6G speeds, yet backward compatible to SATA 3G and 1.5G.
- Ultrathin form factor doesn't add bulk.
DuraClass™ Technologies offer world-class SSD reliability, performance, and power efficiency:
- DuraWrite™: extends the drive endurance by 20x or more compared to standard SSD controllers.
- Advanced Wear Leveling & Monitoring distributes data evenly across the entire drive.
- Advanced Read/Disturb Management safeguards against data corruption by spreading read/write cycles across the flash components.
- Intelligent garbage collection "recycling" maintains optimal write speeds by clearing blocks of unneeded data during off-peak usage times.
- RAISE™ (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) protects the data on your drive from flash block failures without typical RAID inefficiencies.
- Superior error correction (ECC) protection for longest data retention and drive life.
