A silent working environment soon become reality for Notebook user. Spinning, read and write noises which comes from your hard disk operation will be gone, since SanDisk announced their new product line of Solid State Drive.
SanDisk SSD SATA 5000 2.5″, a solid state drive with 32-gigabyte flash memory, is a new born star that will replace the old type Hard Drive. The 2.5″ standard form and Serial ATA of this storage device will make adoption process on many earlier model of notebooks more easier.
Feature of this Drive
- With no moving parts, SanDisk SSD SATA 5000 2.5″ does not need to spin up into action or to seek files in the way that conventional hard disk drives do, while also eliminating the limitations of random seek performance. This also reducing noise
- SanDisk SSD performance is approximately twice as fast as the hard disk drive. This Drive achieves a sustained read rate of 67-megabyte (MB)/sec and a random read rate of 7000 inputs/outputs per second (IOPS) for a 512-byte transfer
- Another advantage of this drive is its extremely low power consumption rate, less than 50%, compared to the hard disk drive: 0.9W during active operation versus 1.9W.
The SanDisk SSD is available now only to computer manufacturers, with initial price around $ 350 for volume order. I hope SanDisk will sell this Disk for retail market immediately, so I can change my Old Hard Disk with this silent new comer.
