PNY Technologies CS1311 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for hard drive replacement, photo and video storage, and use as a boot drive, the 480GB CS1311 SATA III 2.5" Internal SSD from PNY is a 2.5" internal solid-state drive that has a capacity of 480GB 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 90,000 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

    480GB CS1311 SATA III 2.5" Internal SSD is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insurance policy I purchased this as a back up for my c: drive in my newly built computer. This is identical to the on in the machine. As a backup drive, I will purchase some software like Macrium Reflect to 'clone' the c: drive to it. This ensures the least amount of time to restore my system due to a failure. When my c:drive hiccups, I can physically replace it with this one and not have to go through rebuilding the OS, reload/re-license apps and passwords. I also purchased a plastic USB 3.0 enclosure for it to live in until needed (hopefully never). I typically do this 'clone' twice a month or when significant changes to my c:drive are done.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatly sped upp my computer I've only used it for a month, but I am very pleased with it. I don't know how this SSD compares to others, but compared to my old hard drive, the computer runs much smoother. The system starts much faster from any state, and programs take less time to start as well.
