Store and access up to 240GB of your data, be it movies, photos, music, documents, or other files, with the 240GB Ultra II SATA III 2.5" Internal SSD from SanDisk. It is equipped with a SATA III 6 Gb/s interface that fits into your system's 2.5" / 7mm drive bay, and provides load and access times for files and programs that are faster than those of a traditional spinning hard drive. In terms of speed, this drive offers sequential write speeds of up to 500 MB/s, sequential read speeds of up to 550 MB/s, random writes of up to 83,000 IOPS, and random reads of up to 91,000 IOPS. In addition to its enhanced data transfer rates, this drive also offers a life expectancy of 1.75 million hours MTBF, nCache 2.0 technology, NCQ support, TRIM support, DevSleep, dynamic and static wear leveling, thermal throttling, and S.M.A.R.T. support.
With solid state drive technology, you benefit from load and access times for your files and programs that are faster than a conventional 7200 rpm hard drive. As SSDs have no moving parts, they are also more durable than traditional hard drives and are better protected against damage from drops and bumps. Having no moving parts also means that SSDs receive less wear and tear, as there are no read or write heads for the drive media to come into contact with. SSDs also help to deliver improved battery life and cooler operating temperatures.
