Measuring about 1/8 the size of a standard 2.5" Solid State Drive (SSD), the EDGE Boost Pro mSATA SSD is a revolutionary flash-based storage device. Similar in size to a common house key, the microscopic form factor makes the Boost Pro mSATA SSD an ideal upgrade solution for Ultrabooks, small form factor notebooks, and mobile devices. SSDs are faster, lighter, more durable, and more reliable when compared to outdated hard disk drives. Boost Pro mSATA SSDs are both PC and Mac compatible and will work in almost any computer with an mSATA interface.
Utilizing a premium SandForce controller, the Boost Pro mSATA SSD can achieve ultra fast read and write speeds. In comparison to hard drives, SSDs can decrease system boot times by up to 5x.* Fast read/write speeds, coupled with a high max IOPS rating, provide fantastic performance gains in boot times, file transfers, and software application loading.
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 the Boost Pro mSATA SSD, 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 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.
Breakthrough Speed Performance Transfer rates of up to 560MB/s Read and 530MB/s Write. Typically up to 5x faster boot times over hard drives.
Smallest Form Factor Smallest SSD form factor on the market—ideal for Ultrabooks, small form factor notebooks, and mobile devices
Extreme Durability No moving parts—much more durable and reliable than traditional hard drives that use a spinning disk
Less Power Consumption Typically provides up to 13% longer battery life, is more energy efficient, and runs cooler than a traditional hard drive
Ultra Secure Full Disk Encryption (FDE) 256-bit AES hardware encryption secures 100% of data when enabled**
Robust 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
