OCZ Nocti Series NOC-MSATA-120G 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

  • Mini-SATA (mSATA)

OCZ Nocti mSATA SSDs are the ideal upgrade for the latest notebooks and desktop systems with limited storage space. Unlike a standard drive, OCZ Nocti mSATA SSDs are smaller with no outer casing, making them a cost-effective solid state storage solution. Perfect for creating a dual-boot laptop or desktop system where all your storage slots are filled, OCZ mSATA SSDs allow for increased capacities, high speeds, and low power consumption in a small form factor. Based on the high-performance SandForce processors, Nocti mSATA Series is the ideal upgrade for enthusiast and professional mobile workstations and tablets.

  • newegg Lightweight for On-the-Go Computing The mSATA OCZ Nocti Series enables a flexible, scalable and accelerated storage solution in a form factor that is up to 8 times smaller than a 2.5 hard-disk drive, and weighs 10 times less. Supporting SATA signals over a PCI Express (PCIe) mini-connector, the OCZ Nocti Series provides compact storage acceleration for single-drive systems like netbooks, tablets and other hand-held devices.
  • newegg High Performance & Durable Dual-Drive Option Driven by the second generation of SandForce SSD controller (SF-2141/2181), the Nocti Series delivers up to 280MB/s read and 32,000 IOPS of 4KB random write performance (120GB model), significantly improving your productivity, gaming, multimedia, and overall computing experience. The small footprint also augments hard-disk drive performance in dual-drive systems, such as all-in-ones, notebooks and small-form-factor (SFF) desktops. The mSATA form factor connects easily to an existing mSATA port on a PC enabling the SSD to perform as a boot drive, quick access to frequently-used applications or storage. In addition, the SSD controller’s integrated enhanced DuraClass Technology is architected to leverage today’s densest MLC NAND Flash memory, delivering best-in-class performance, endurance, security, and power efficiency in a “DRAM-less”, single chip solution.
  • newegg A Superior PC Experience In addition to maximum performance, a Nocti upgrade promotes cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. With no moving parts, SSDs provide peace of mind with their superior durability and reliability. Nocti SSDs work in perfect harmony with next generation platforms and operating systems to deliver the ultimate storage solution.
  • newegg TRIM Support The Nocti Series SSDs offer native TRIM support featured in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. 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.

5 out of 5 eggsIn service for a year, works flawlessly

Pros: Flawless reliability, fast performance, easy installation

Cons: Higher unit cost per byte than magnetic media

Other Thoughts: I put this into service about a year ago as the boot drive for a server, and it has Just Worked. No data errors whatsoever. The server boot time decreased from about 45 seconds to about 10 seconds, under Debian Linux.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little mSata Drive

Pros: purchased for use in Alienware m18x. fit was great, just locate a secure screw before installing. speed is very good. I just purchased a new 256gb mSata, nothing wrong with this one, I just needed a larger size, wish I purchased the 256gb first instead.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent addition for my Lenovo X220

Pros: I've had this drive about 8 months now, installed it new into my then-new Lenovo X220. It is lightning fast and makes for a fantastic system drive that I have installed Windows 7 Ultimate edition on. Many applications including Office 2010 load almost instantly. Highly recommended. Extremely stable and I haven't had a single crash that was related to this drive. It is a great compliment to the included 320GB Seagate standard HD that I use for storage. The system will shut that drive down when it is not in use, resulting in complete system silence.

Cons: None that I can think of! Price, perhaps?

Other Thoughts: As common with Windows, you don't want to do too many sleep cycles between reboots, or funny things will start to happen and crash. For the most part, I can get a good 10 cycles (sleep-wake-sleep-wake, etc) before I need to reboot. When the computer wakes from sleep, it does so almost instantly.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: This is the best upgrade to any laptop. 120gb is an excellent size especially if you use linux. I use this for my root and boot partitions.

Cons: Came in a huge box for something that is about 4 inches long haha.

Other Thoughts: This increased performance incredibly.

1 out of 5 eggsmsata

Pros: fast boot up for my w520

Cons: I bought and used this for a bout 2 months. After the second month it started to stuck. whenever, I tried to open a program, it takes along time to open. I tried to contact newegg, they said it is beyond the return period and the extended warranty will not kick in until the manufacturer warranty is expired. I tried to contact the manufacturer no one return my phone. I create the ticket number and no reply even now. it is a almost a month now. I would not recommend this to anyone.

5 out of 5 eggsmy third drive in W520

Pros: Looking at this thing, it's hard to believe that it's a hard drive. It looks more like a narrow and long SO-DIMM, rather then a hard drive. Speed is OK, about 300MB read, 200-300 write. Perfect fit for OS drive.

Cons: I'd wish it could be in-par with my main Samsung 830 speed-wise, but I guess I'm asking too much :)

Other Thoughts: So my main goal was to enable Windows stripe volume to double the IO on my main two drives. The problem is, that you can't install Windows OS on a stripped Windows volume, and W520 comes without a hardware RAID controller if you ordered it without RAID. So, this small drive came to rescue - now all my OS stuff is on this drive, protected with Bitlocker, and my two super fast Samsung 830 256GB drives are in software RAID, giving me 1000MB/Sec read and 800 write speeds.

5 out of 5 eggsYeah!, an mSATA SSD!

Pros: Works in the system I wanted it for.
Sytems boots to useable Win7 (sp1 X64) Desktop in 18 seconds after an 8 second post.
Good price for a 120gb mSATA ssd.

Cons: Cost of mSATA Vs. 2.5 ssd or 2.5 hd :)
Did not work in my Foxconn NT-a3700 :(

Other Thoughts: I put this in a Zotac ID81. There is a slot on the back side of the motherboard from the SATA connector. I took that chance that the second miniPICE slot was mSata compatible and it is!
Using this as a HTPC with 4gb ram, the Nocti is the boot drive and a 1 TB WD blue (Item#: N82E16822136945) is recorder storage with my Silicon Dust HD Homerun Prime.
