The 240GB Mercury Electra 6G 2.5" Internal SSD from Other World Computing comes compatible with both SATA 6 Gb/s and 3 Gb/s interfaces allowing you to plug this drive into a variety of PC configurations. Take advantage of a maximum read speed of 556 MB/s and maximum write speed of 523 MB/s over the included SATA connection to transfer data quickly and efficiently.
The Mercury Electra drive comes equipped with a SandForce 2281 controller with 7% over provisioning for enhanced drive performance. Additionally, this drive also supports RAISE (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) technology and enhanced ECC functionality to protect your stored data.
With DuraWrite you can extend the endurance of your solid state drive (SSD).
Intelligent Block Management & Wear Leveling
Automatically distribute data evenly across the entire SSD.
Intelligent Read Disturb Management
Spread the active read/write across the flash components eliminating data corruption caused by constant use.
Intelligent recycling is designed for advanced free space management as it gradually re-writes data across the SSD over time to ensure data never gets corrupted.
Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements protects the data on your drive similar to having a RAID setup.
With ECC protection you benefit from longer data retention and drive life.
