Product details

Phison 480GB 2.5-inch SATA III SSD

• 2.5-Inch internal 480GB solid state drive (SSD)
• SATA III (6Gb/s) connection
• Up to 540MB/s read speed and a 520MB/s write speed
• Random 9000 IOPS at 4KB
• Manufacturer part code: S10TLC480GB

What level of performance can I expect from this SSD?
With a large capacity of 480GB, you will have plenty of room for running your operating system as well as storing your music, photos and videos on your PC. The 480GB memory capacity will give you enough storage for approximately 90 hours of high definition video or more than 260,000 photos so you'll never have to worry about running out of space. As the drive comes with no moving parts it performs actions a lot faster than a mechanical hard drive. With a read speed of 540MB/s and a write speed 520MB/s, the data transfer speed is increased nearly four times, making this a great replacement for your current drive.

How efficient is the SSD?
With no moving parts, this SSD consumes less power and produces less heat than a mechanical HDD. A cooler running drive allows you to comfortably use a laptop on your lap without the noise of the fan cancelling out the sound from your speakers. This lightens the load on your PC's power supply and cooling system, lengthening your computer's battery life.

What other benefits does using an SSD have?
The failure rate of SSDs is less than that of mechanical hard drives by up to 33 per cent. The SSD drive has no moving parts, it uses flash memory to store data, which provides better performance and reliability over an HDD. This gives you a peace of mind that you are at low risk of losing important data.

The specs say 9 thousand IOPS. Is that accurate or is it a typo because other manufacturers' SSDs are claiming ten times that amount for little more money.

Asked by: Diseasel
If it is accurate then this is a very poor performing drive. How often a storage device can perform IO tasks is measured in Input/Output Operations per Second (IOPS), and varies depending on the type of IO being done. The greater the number of IOPS, the better the performance. It's like a TORQUE measure of a car engine (or the pulling power). It is not stated how & what type of I/O was performed to achieve 9000 so that figure is probably optimal (remember VW emmisons figures ?). This drive may be able to do reads at 540MB/s but only 9000 times a seconds. That means this drive performs I/O operations nearly 10 times SLOWER than similarly priced drives.  So, IOPS figures is just as important as read/write transfer speed and on this drive it's very very low.

How do I make this work with my desktop (W10)? I plugged in the SATA connectors but nothing happens - the OS doesn't seem to see it. Also it doesn't appear in the system list. Do I have to go into the BIOS?

Asked by: navigus
Thanks, that worked.
