PNY Technologies CS1311 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for hard drive replacement, photo and video storage, and use as a boot drive, the 240GB CS1311 SATA III 2.5" Internal SSD from PNY is a 2.5" internal solid-state drive that has a capacity of 240GB and natively fits into the 7mm drive bay of your compatible system. Using the included 2.5mm spacer, this SSD may also be used in systems that have a 2.5" / 9.5mm drive bay.

Featuring compatibility with SATA III 6 Gb/s and SATA II 3 Gb/s interfaces, the CS1311 can achieve sequential write speeds of up to 510 MB/s, sequential read speeds of up to 520 MB/s, random write speeds of up to 90,000 IOPS, random read speeds of up to 87,000 IOPS, and is built using TLC NAND flash memory. This SSD may also be used to store and quickly access files such as movies, music, photos, documents, and more.

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. This SSD is protected by a limited 3-year warranty.

General Features

PNY SSDs are faster than traditional spinning hard drives, feature no moving parts, and complete random operations rapidly
Quality Assurance
PNY SSDs undergo component and sub-system testing. High-quality NAND is utilized to help ensure solid SSDs, which are validated across applications and environments to meet quality, reliability, and durability criteria
PNY SSDs undergo over 10,000 hours of validation testing
Cool and Quiet Operation
PNY SSDs generate less heat than a hard drive, helping to increase the life of your system by reducing operating temperature and potential damage from overheating. Additionally, SSDs produce minimal noise, making your system quieter
Energy Efficient
PNY SSDs feature low-wattage and function with an advanced lower-power mode
Shock Proof
PNY SSDs are more robust than hard drives, making them less likely to fail in extreme environments, including high and low temperatures. The non-volatile NAND in the system helps enable the SSD to retain its memory if your computer falls or is dropped

    PNY Technologies CS1311 reviews

    240GB CS1311 SATA III 2.5" Internal SSD is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed I got to tell you, these drives are really fast! I bought two of them and put them in older laptops, was I surprised! I know ssd drives are fast to begin with but not this fast! Pny did well with these hands down. The price was great as well...Going to buy more of these no doubt, just need the extra money

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good drive Purchased this solid state drive to put my OS on for a new desktop build. Boots quick like expected and everything runs fast! My only complaint is the UPS shipping!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good SSD for HD replacememnt I use these SSDs to upgrade some old Dell desktops that were starting to appear sluggish (by today's PC standards). These PC's are mostly used for web apps and some simple Microsoft Office tasks. The boost in performance by replacing the HD with the SSD adds lots of life to the PC. The best part of the deal is PNY ships an access code to Acronis cloning software to make the cloning process easy. It even works on a HD that is larger than the SSD (as long as your HD partitions are < the size of the SSD.
