Zalman’s feather-light aluminum S Series 2.5’’ SSDs contain both SATA II and mini-USB 2.0 interfaces, providing higher convenience and flexibility as either a portable storage device or internal disk drive. In addition to the dual interface, by utilizing a JMicron controller chip, as well as cutting-edge flash memory with 128MB DDR2 cache buffer, the S Series achieves ultra-fast access and transferring performance with a read speed of up to 260 MB/s and write throughput speed of up to 210 MB/s (120MB/s for 64GB Model). Optimized for AHCI Mode along with Windows 7 Trim support, the S Series also enables ultra fast start-up and access speed, as well as silent and low power operation.
SSD Storage Technology Unlike traditional hard disk drives, SSDs have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly reliable storage solution that also offers faster application loading and system responsiveness. And for laptops and netbooks, the lower power needs of SSDs translate to extended battery life. Higher performance with more durability means you can be truly mobile with confidence.
A Major Upgrade in Performance In addition to its 128MB DDR2 SDRAM, the Zalman S Series utilizes the latest JMicron controller and Intel MLC NAND Flash to stand out among its competitors, providing up to 260 MB/s sequential read speed and up to 120 MB/s write performance (64GB Model).
Trim Support The Zalman S Series SSDs offer TRIM support than can be enabled in Windows 7. Designed to maintain the performance of SSD at an optimal level over the lifetime of the drive, TRIM functions by actively deleting invalid data from the SSD’s memory cells to ensure that write operations perform at full speed. Since a memory block must be erased before it can be re-programmed, TRIM improves performance by pro-actively erasing pages containing invalid data, allowing the SSD to write new data without first having to perform a time-consuming erase command.
Dual Interfaces, Flexible Usage The Zalman S Series equips SATA II and mini-USB dual interfaces for greater convenience and flexibility. The SSD can be used either as an external portable storage drive, or as an installed disk in laptop or desktop PC compatible with 2.5’’ SSD.
