About this product


Product overview

• 500GB internal solid state drive (SSD) giving you a large storage capacity for your computer
• mSATA connection with a read/write speed of 520MB/sec for a space saving design and super quick data transfer
• 97,000 input/output per second (IOPS)
• Perfect for replacing the hard drive in your netbook or Apple MacBook Air

Why should I buy a solid state drive?
SSD hard drives are faster, more reliable and a lot more efficient than a standard hard drive (HDD). Durability and reliability are two things you can expect from an SSD. They are able to withstand knocks and shocks, making them ideal to use in laptops and netbooks. This doesn’t mean you can’t use them in computers - they provide a quick start up speed and a silent operation as well as being easy to install into your case.

What benefits does this SSD have?
This Samsung 850 EVO comes as a 500GB drive. This capacity is sufficient enough to run any operating system as well as installing programs and games. The 520MB/sec read/write speed allows you to save data faster and recall it when you are in a hurry.

The connection seems smaller than my normal one, can I still use this in a desktop computer?
Although this SSD has a mini-SATA (mSATA) connection it doesn’t stop you from using it in a normal desktop computer or even in a laptop with a standard SATA connection. You will require an mSATA to SATA converter.

How will a V-NAND drive help me?
V-NAND technology is a step above other SSDs. Instead of making the cells smaller to squeeze more in, it stacks them on top of each other. Silicon nitride layers also aid in preventing corruption caused by cell to cell interference, providing up to twice the average life span of other SSDs.
V-NAND technology not only lasts longer, but it uses up to 45% less power and delivers writing speeds of up to two times faster.

Does this fit an mSATA E-Slot?

Asked by: Nick
It's designed to fit into a mSATA slot only ... I'm not sure what you mean by a mSata E-slot, are your confusing it with mini PCI-e.
