SandForce Driven – Utilizes the SandForce SF-2281 controller for elite performance and reliability.

Note: Based on EDGE testing results. Performance may vary depending on OS, configuration, etc.

Consult your computers manual to ensure drive encryption is a supported function of the BIOS.

EDGE Boost Pro 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 The result is a faster, lighter, more durable, and more reliable solution primed to replace outdated hard drives forever.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 Pro SSDs are both PC and Mac compatible and will work in almost any computer or server with a SATA interface. EDGE offers various notebook, desktop, and server upgrade kits designed to make the transition to SSDs a smooth and easy operation.

Utilizing the premium SandForce SF-2281 controller, the Boost Pro SSD can achieve ultra fast read and write speeds of up to 550MB/s and 515MB/s respectively. In comparison to hard drives, SSDs can cut system boot times by 50%. Fast read/write speeds, coupled with an 85,000 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 Pro 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 Pro SSDs, featuring 256-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 Pro SSD is quite possibly the best upgrade you will ever make to your system—make the switch from archaic hard drives today.

Note: When used in a SATA 6Gb/s system. Boost Pro SSDs will work in a SATA 3Gb/s system, but operate at a slower speed. Consult your systems user manual to ensure it can perform at SATA 6Gb/s speeds.

Based on EDGE testing results. Performance may vary depending on OS, configuration, etc.
