The 1.8" 480GB Aura Pro SATA Solid State Drive from OWG/Other World Computing is designed for special applications, netbooks and subnotebooks that utilize a 1.8" SATA hard drive. Equipped with a SandForce SF-2181 full series processor and DuraClass technology, the solid state drive offers sustained reads up to 284 MB/s and writes up to 268 MB/s. In addition to RAISE (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) technology, the solid state drive comes with ECC protection that protects the data on your hard drive and retains it for a long time on the hard drive. The Aura Pro Solid State Drive has an Intelligent Block Management and Wear Leveling feature, which automatically distributes the data evenly over the hard drive. It also has an Intelligent Read Disturb Management feature, which spreads active read or write across the flash components, eliminating data corruption.
Fast and Reliable
The Aura Pro Solid State Drive is fast and most reliable for data storage and backup. It offers faster data rates up to 284 MB/s. You can expand your system up to 16 times more in capacity than the original factory hard drive option. For your hard drive-equipped netbook/subnotebook, you have the added benefit of rugged dependability of a solid state drive that offers up to 100 times greater reliability than traditional hard drives
SandForce DuraClass Technology
The Aura Pro Solid State Drive features the industry-leading SandForce DuraClass technology. The DuraWrite extends the endurance of your solid state drive, while the Intelligent Block Management & Wear Leveling feature automatically distributes data evenly across the entire solid state drive. The Intelligent Read Disturb Management feature spreads the active read/write across the flash components, eliminating data corruption caused by constant use. The Advanced Intelligent Recycling feature gradually re-writes data across the solid state drive over time to ensure that data never gets corrupted. The RAISE (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) protects the data on your drive similar to having a RAID setup. In addition, the solid state drive features the best-in-class ECC protection for longer data retention and drive life
With DuraWrite technology, the solid state drive optimizes writes to the flash memory over conventional controllers, increasing the overall endurance and reliability of the drive. This adds up to a Mean Time To Failure (MTTF) that is higher than most enterprise-class hard drives and solid state drives available in the market today. In addition, there are no volatile memory elements in this storage device, so the need for cache is completely negated
High-Performance Internal Storage
You can replace your conventional hard drive with the Aura Pro Solid State Drive. Unlike traditional hard disk drives, the drive have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly rugged storage solution that also offers faster system responses
