The 960 GB Mercury Electra MAX 3G Solid State Drive from Other World Computing is an internal 2.5" SATA SSD that uses a SandForce 2181 Processor and DuraClass technology to deliver high transfer speed, endurance and performance.
With sustained reads up to 254 MB/s and writes up to 250 MB/s, up to 100x greater data protection than enterprise-class hard disk drives and RAISE technology for RAID-like data protection and reliability, the Mercury Electra MAX 3G SSD delivers unbeatable performance.
Unlike traditional hard disk drives, the SSD has no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly rugged storage solution that also offers near instantaneous system response.
Note:This drive is designed for use in Mac and PC systems and is not supported or recommended for use in external, bus-powered enclosures. This drive is supported for use in external enclosures that utilize a power source independent from the interface bus.
DuraWrite extends the endurance of your Solid State Drive (SSD).
Intelligent Block Management & Wear Leveling automatically distribute 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 gradually re-writes data across the SSD over time to ensure data never gets corrupted.
RAISE (Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) protects the data on your drive similar to having a RAID setup.
Best-in-Class ECC Protection ensures longest data retention and drive life.
