RiDATA Turbo 16GB 2.5" SATA II SLC Industrial Solid State Disk NSSD-S25-16-CO2T

  • 2.5"
  • SLC
  • SATA II
ICON Loading...

Perhaps one of the roughest, toughest hard drives we'e ever seen, and that's because it's solid state, with no moving parts. That's right: no moving parts, so it draws less power, runs cooler, and handles conditions no ordinary drive could live through. It will withstand 15 g's of vibration and can handle up to 1000 g's of shock.

Now give it four MILLION hours mean time between failures, and your data just might out-live you! Perfect for mission critical storage or rugged environments (well, maybe not scuba diving yet) while being kind to the environment at the same time (RoHS compliant). This is the sort of drive you hope to find in your paramedic's computer or your platoon leader's tank.

So if you want a hard drive rugged enough for combat or maybe even airport baggage handlers, this is certainly one to check out.

  • newegg SSD Storage Technology Acting without any moving parts, the RiDATA NSSD-S25-16-CO2T solid state drive (SSD) boasts multiple advanced features including zero mechanical noise, faster data rates compared to conventional HDDs, over 4-million-hour life span, ultra-low power consumption and impressive shock, vibration and extreme temperature resistance. With these breakthrough capabilities, the SSD meets all the demanding requirements for high-performance mobile computing.
  • newegg 2.5" Form Factor The RiDATA NSSD-S25-16-CO2T is specifically designed for notebook computers equipped with a 2.5" SATA drive bay.

2 out of 5 eggsCheap, and worked for a while

Pros: Inexpensive and fast (while it was working) $69.99

Cons: It broke after the warranty expired, the BIOS no longer can see it, tried it in several machines. It died without any warning and some data was lost.

Other Thoughts: I have had more success with the 32GB model, maybe I got a bad one, but this is not what I signed up for when I bought it. Replaced with a 32GB from the same manufacturer.

3 out of 5 eggsFinally got it working

Pros: SLC memroy.
Got the drive on sale for $69.99.

Cons: Slow for an SSD drive.
Also the connectors are not on spec for 2.5" drive.
The drive does not plug into my Rosewill Docking Station.

Other Thoughts: I saw in other reviews that this drive does not work with Intel 945 chipsets. I could not get it to work with my Intel Atom motherboards. It would post sometimes but most times was not be recognized. I setup the drive using guides from the OCZ web site. Set it to an offset of 1024 using Diskpar. Did all the tweaks. After a sucesseful boot into Windows, I benchmarked the drive and it was fairly close to the published specs. Upon shutting down the computer and restarting, the drive was not recognized by the motherboard BIOS. I fooled with the drive and BIOS settings for several days but could not get it to work reliably. As a last ditch effort I deleted the drive partition and Ghosted over my old Mechanical drive to this drive. The drive booted into Windows XP just fine. I checked alignment and of course the drive showed up as not aligned. However benchmarks were as fast as before. Bottom line, just install this drive the same as a Mechanical drive and it works well.

5 out of 5 eggsSuccess...after much trouble

Pros: works with my tabletpc. tablet is very cool now after an hour of use. winxp doesn't stutter while drawing on wacom screen. I kinda felt my tablet was a bad purchase but now I love using it! 5 eggs is deserved!

Cons: ridata needs to include more info on setup. I had a lot of trouble making this work on my tabletkiosk tablet. I spent hours messing with the BIOS with no success. no increase in battery life as I had hoped. If price was $10-15 less I would buy at least 3 more. Current price makes me wait until larger size SSD go down in price

Other Thoughts: Finally I did the following with success. Reset BIOS to default. Cloned my already working setup using XXclone and esata dock. Using Windows XP 'computer management' I went to Disk management and right clicked on ridata ssd and choose 'mark partition as active'. put SSD in tablet and was good to go. Prior to using 'mark partition as active' I got a 'no disk' error while trying to bootup. Strange but my BIOS still says the SSD is '0mb'. But hey it still works!

4 out of 5 eggsGood promotional buy!

Pros: All the usual SSD advantages.

Cons: Was not recognized by the BIOS on my Gigabyte GA-EP45T-UD3P MB with F8b BIOS.

Other Thoughts: Thought the install on this would be a no brainer but oddly enough the BIOS did not see it! I only plugged it on to a MB SATA connector to see that it worked on a new build machine. Could not believe it was not recognized but when W7 started up it was there in the MMC for storage. Could have tried the Giga SATA 2 subsytem but didn't. Will use it on a Asus PK5-VM MB / FreeNAS server to replace the CF - SATA OS drive eventually. We'll see if it works or not with the ICH9 Controller.

4 out of 5 eggs1 out of 2 worked

Pros: Works both in a netbook and in a cheap external USB drive converter.
Price was great for an SLC drive when it was on sale.

Cons: Tried to create an image on one with Ghost, after it was done, the drive was no longer recognizable.
Only minimal speedup over a hard disk, but I bought it for the reliability, not speed.

Other Thoughts: While one of them died while trying to put an image onto it using Ghost, the other one worked fine when I put it in an external USB carrier and used TrueImage to write an image to it, and then put it back into my netbook (Acer 751h)

I was just barely able to get my (new netbook's) XP config down below 16gb. I would recommend at least 32gb unless you want to spend a lot of time doing it, but it can be done :)

2 out of 5 eggsWeird...

Pros: Once windows boots, things are quick.

Cons: - Recognized as an external drive in the bios...
- INCREASED boot time...maybe because it is recognized as being external?
- Once windows boots, there is one program that I have set to open by default, and that takes longer as well.

Other Thoughts: Yes I have an Nvidia chipset and yes I updated bios as Ritek suggested another reviewer. I am just very disappointed with this purchase and the results this drive has yielded. A huge let down from all the positive things I have read about SSD drives.

1 out of 5 eggsmanufacturer warranty policy

Pros: I just thought that potential purchasers shold benefit from my HOURS of research into the warranty time period associated with this particular product.
One year from time of invoice.
This information was exceedingly difficult to find, the only place that a potential customer would find it is on or in the packaging. No where on the Ridata /AMI website is there any reference to the warranty period for thier SSD products, I just happened to locate the info on an e-tailer's product description for this particular SSD.
VERY well hidden, almost like someone is embarassed to own up to this warranty policy.

Cons: non accessable warranty policy information

Other Thoughts: I thought to "buddy up" my OCZ MLC drives to some SLC counterparts, but will be having second thoughts due to the reluctance of the manufacturer to provide any info on thier warranty terms.

4 out of 5 eggsUPDATE: 3

Pros: Medium High to High throughput sustained with excellent random access. I have successfully installed my XP OS to the drive with a 4 Gig swap file on the drive and although it boots only a little faster, normal operations are OBVIOUSLY faster. I would buy it again, but would go for a 32Gig drive as a bare minimum =)

Cons: Steep price for a small drive (typical of all SSD's)

Other Thoughts: Updating the BIOS in my PC has made this drive become recognizable in all but one of my now 5 PC's. I am still awaiting an update for one of my PC's manufacturers to make the device work properly. If your manufacturer is slow to make a bios update that will allow you to use this then you can still always go the RAID card route. It is soooo worth it.

2 out of 5 eggsUpdated Review

Pros: speed? I would like to sat that I can get good speed out of this drive, but I have only found one machine that will run it, my laptop.

Cons: I have now tried the drive on 4 different chipset motherboards and I cannot get it to be recognized by windows. I have only found one motherboard that it works on, and its a dell laptop (D820). I am more than peeved that I can't used this in my server. I have tried it on Nforce4, 780i, and intel 945G motherboards. I don't have access many more types of motherboards, but considering it didn't work on but 1 of the 4 boards I tried it on, I am a bit peeved that I payed 350$ for it.

Other Thoughts: This drive doesn't work like it should. I is not like any other SATA drive; by that I mean that it doesn't necessarily get identified by your motherboards bios, and when you try to install XP (as in my case) the disk says that it cannot access the drive, preventing you from installing your OS. BAH!

Manufacturer Response:

Need update driver for nVidia Main Board

RiDATA SSD is the only solid state disk gain the BEST of CES 2008 Awards and the Best Tech for Small Business by CNN/Fortune Magazine, and some high-end system builders are shipping their systems with our RiDATA SSD already.

However some motherboard may not detect the SSD (not only RiDATA brand, but all), mainly from nVidia chipset main board. That is nothing to do with RiDATA SSD. The new version of bois updated from nVidia solve this issue.

Here is the driver download site: http://www.ritekusa.com/support_downloadSSD.asp

RiDATA offers superior quality and support, if you have any problem, go to RiTEKUSA.com or contact the manufacturer directly.


Customers bought the RiTEK/ RiDATA products can get tech support or do RMA directly with RiTEK USA, by going to www.ritekusa.com

We appreciate the business from the customers of newegg.com!
