OCZ Strata mSATA Solid State Drives are the ideal upgrade for the latest notebooks and desktop systems with limited storage space. Unlike a standard drive, OCZ 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 drives allow for increased capacities, high performance, low power consumption, and leverage the Indilinx boot time optimization in a small form factor. Based on the quality Indilinx controller, the affordable Strata Series is an excellent mSATA upgrade option for cost-conscious consumers using for the home office or on the go mobile computing.
Lightweight for On-the-Go Computing The mSATA OCZ Strata 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 Strata Series provides compact storage acceleration for single-drive systems like netbooks, tablets and other hand-held devices.
Ideal upgrade for small form factor devices at an excellent value Utilizing the Indilinx Barefoot ECO controller, the Strata Series Solid state drives deliver ideal performance and reliability at an attractive price point. 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.
A Superior PC Experience In addition to maximum performance, a Strata SSD 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.
TRIM Support The Strata 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.
