OWC / Other World Computing OWCSSDA116K120 overview

  • 1Description

The unformatted 120GB Aura SSD & Envoy Upgrade Kit for MacBook Air 2010-11 Edition from Other World Computing includes Aura 6G 120GB SSD which is almost twice the capacity of the factory installed SSD. All the installation tools for opening and installing the SSD and an Envoy USB 2.0/3.0 enclosure for data transfer for continued use of the Apple SSD are also included. The Aura 6G SSD provides Mac users with an upgrade path that delivers optimal performance, functionality, and reliability. It offers up to 275MB/s speed that is 68% higher than the factory SSD, with MacBook Air 2010, and up to 507 MB/s speed that is three times faster than factory, with 2011 MacBook Air. You can even reuse the factory SSD via the OWC Envoy as an external storage solution. The kit allows you take data with you in the Aura SSD that can fit in your pocket or laptop case. You can easily add additional laptop storage, with no AC adapter required.

This SSD uses SandForce DuraClass technologies that includes DuraWrite, intelligent block management and wear leveling, intelligent read disturb management, and intelligent recycling to manage and protect your data/contents. This SSD offers ECC Protection and uses RAISE (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) that protects the data on your drive, which is similar to having a RAID setup.

3G and 6G Speed

3G Speeds with 2010 MacBook Air
Get up to 275MB/s write speed that is 68% faster than factory.
Includes all the tools and free video necessary for installation.
6G Speeds with 2011 MacBook Air
Get up to 507MB/s speed that is three times faster than factory.
Includes all the tools and free video necessary for installation.

SandForce DuraClass Technologies

DuraWrite Technology
OWC SSD with DuraWrite, optimizes writes to the flash memory over conventional controllers, increasing the overall endurance and reliability of the complete SSD. Block management and wear leveling also extends the overall endurance. With this technology, even MLC-based SSDs can operate for years in demanding applications, without daily write restrictions. This adds up to a higher MTTF (Mean Time To Failure).
Intelligent Block Management & Wear Leveling
Automatically distributes data evenly across the entire SSD.
Intelligent Read Disturb Management
Spreads the active read/write across the flash components, eliminating data corruption caused by constant use.
Intelligent Recycling
For advanced free space management, it gradually re-writes data across the SSD over time to ensure data never gets corrupted.
SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Interface
Its SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface is capable of speeds up to 500 MB/s and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0. Its bus-powered design does not require AC power adapter and makes it an ideal portable plug and play solution. Just plug the USB cord into your computer and the Envoy is ready for use.
RAISE
Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements (RAISE) protects the data on your drive, which is similar to having a RAID setup.
ECC Protection
For longer data retention and drive life.
