EDGE Boost Pro SSD
TAA compliant and built with premium SandForce controllers


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. Boost SSDs are PC, Mac, and Linux compatible. EDGE offers notebook, desktop, and server upgrade kits designed to make the transition to SSDs a smooth and easy experience.

Utilizing a premium SandForce controller, the Boost Pro SSD achieves ultra fast read and write speeds. In comparison to hard drives, 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 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 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.




Features and Benefits:

  • Exceptional Performance- Ultra fast read and write speeds - substantial performance gains in file access, application loading, and more. Typically up to 5x faster boot times compared to hard drives.

  • Extreme Durability - No moving parts - more durable and reliable than traditional hard drives that use a spinning disk.

  • Low Power Consumption - Longer notebook battery life, more energy efficient, and runs cooler than hard drives.

  • Ultra Secure - Utilizes full Disk Encryption (FDE). AES hardware encryption secures 100% of data when enabled.

  • Feature-Rich - SandForce Driven - Includes a full complement of performance and stability enhancing features: TRIM, ECC, Garbage Collection, S.M.A.R.T., Durawrite, RAISE, and more. Compatible with Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X environments.

Amazing buy!

2015-02-12
By Chrys 
Hands down best value for your money in SSD's. Can't beat this price. Easy swap out of my old HDD, took less than 10min. Running Yosemite on my Mid 2012 Macbook Pro, which now boots up in 13sec flat with this SSD!

Finally Made The Move

2015-01-27
By Ken 
I purchased this because the price was finally coming into an affordable range. I couldn't be happier with the drive. It was kind of a stinker to migrate my old drive over, a learning curve I guess but well worth the trouble. My computer starts up in a flash now and programs just fly, can't wait till the larger drives get cheaper now.

Edge 480GB SSD

2015-01-21
By Don Hood 
I needed to upgrade a Friend's Daughter's 5 year old Macbook Pro.
Maxed out the memory, got this drive, used SuperDuper to copy the OS and Data to the Edge, swapped with the internal 160 standard drive in very little time.

Result: OUTSTANDING performance increase, simple as can be, and the price of the Edge for a reasonable amount of very fast storage just can't be beat.

Edge Memory 480GB

2014-11-15
By Ralph 
Looking for a solution of additional SSD space for my custo-mac, I tried the Ege Memory 480GB SSD. It performs as described and at a sale price of less than $200, it is a perfect value. Running OS X 10/8 now for two weeks, the system performance is very good and stable. I would buy again (if it were on sale again).
