EDGE Boost Micro - Solid state drive - 480 GB - Product Details
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. Boost Micro SSDs are both PC and Mac compatible and will work in almost any computer with a Micro SATA interface.Utilizing a premium SandForce controller, the Boost Micro SSD can achieve ultra fast transfer speeds. In comparison to hard drives, EDGE Boost SSDs can improve system boot times by 5x. Fast read/write speeds and a lofty 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 less susceptible to mechanical failures. 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 AES hardware encryption that secures 100% of data when enabled (Consult your computer's manual to ensure drive encryption is a supported function of the BIOS). 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.
