General information

Eliminate storage bottleneck and infuses new life into your laptop/desktop PCs with the L5 LITE 3D SSD from Team Group. Built with premium 3D NAND chips and sophisticated controller, the L5 LITE 3D SSD delivers up to 470MBps read speed (for reference only) over its SATA III 6Gbps host interface, enabling an improved overall system performance. A suite of advanced technologies like ECC, TRIM and Wear-Leveling ensures data integrity, consistent performance over usage and long service life. 7mm thickness allows seamless integration into desktops, laptops and Ultrabooks.

General information

Welcome to the New Era of 3D NAND

The latest generation of 3D NAND flash memory has overcome the technical barrier of 2D NAND and has enhanced the overall capacity, performance, and reliability. Unlike the 2D planar flash memory, 3D NAND increases storage capacity by stacking up cells in the vertical direction. It not only provides a better performance and endurance but also breaks through the technical limitation of planar chips.

General information

Four Times of Speed Improvement

The L5 LITE 3D solid state drive is four times faster* than the traditional hard drive. Its excellent performance and read/write speed not only allow fast boot/shutdown time but also speed up the response time of all applications, so consumers can enjoy the high-speed performance immediately after the upgrade. The lightweight and zero hassle advantage make it the best product to replace the traditional hard drive.

General information

Lightweight and Compact with Various Capacities for Selection

The L5 LITE 3D solid state drive has an industry-standard 2.5-inch. With the only 7mm in height, it is best suited for Ultrabooks on the market. Whether it is for laptop or desktop, the upgrade can be done quickly. It is using SATA III 6Gbps specification and capacities available in 120GB, 240GB, 480GB, etc. With read speed up to 470 MB/s*, it not only improves the computer performance, but it is also the best bargain available.

General information

Solid, Durable, Total Protection

The L5 LITE 3D solid state drive is using 3D NAND flash memory chip, which is durable, shockproof, drop resistant and offers a total protection for the data. Even if you accidentally drop your computer or it landed on a hard surface, it can still prevent damages and data corruption from accidents.

General information

Perfect Long Term Operation

The L5 LITE 3D solid state drive supports Windows TRIM optimization command which is able to release free blocks, allowing an operating system to use them later immediately when writing data. The optimized access control technology of NCQ can speed up the transfer and write performance of the SSD, and effectively reduces performance degradation and wear and tear of the drive. This can prolong the service life of the SSD perfectly.

General information

Trustworthy Reliability

L5 LITE 3D solid state drive's built-in smart algorithm management mechanism has functions such as garbage collection which is able to ensure operational efficiency. The powerful Wear-Leveling technology and ECC (Error Correction Code) function enhance the reliability of data transfer.

10 Second Boot Time

Pros: 10 second boot time (fresh install of Windows 10)
Inexpensive
System is noticeably faster.

Cons: Not bleeding edge nVME

Other Thoughts: Up and running for about a month with no issues. Way faster than the platter drive it replaced. If you want to speed up an older system, this is the best $55 investment you can make.

Nice little drive!

Pros: Fast and cheap!

Cons: My only con is the colour of the drive. It is an awful colour! I took 1 egg off for the ugly colour. Some might find this silly, but a lot of gamers use custom colours inside there cases.

No support, no utilities for migrating to this drive. Drive does not work (as far as I can tell).

Pros: No Pros. This thing is a "brick".

Cons: I have hooked it to several external drive adapters. All do not respond as if this is actually an SSD drive.
I have sent several requests for help to "Team Group". No response.
I have downloaded their "SSD Workbench" file. It came with no file type. Finally tried WinRAR, which found a
manual (pdf) and a utility software tool.
Tool does not recognize the SSD as a disk drive.
Sent more requests for assistance. No response.

Other Thoughts: Will return if no response from Team Group or Newegg.

Good product but needs more specs if Teamgroup wants to play with the big boys

Pros: Bought this on a sale, dirt cheap. I already own a Samsung 850 EVO as boot drive. I own a Crucial MX500 for my games installation library. I wanted a cheap SSD to put into enclosure to have a portable SSD to serve as media library. This cheap SSD fits the bill. The sequential read and write speeds are higher than advertised. This SSD does have a DRAM cache, superior to other products in this class, which are so-called "DRAM-less."

Cons: One big mistake from Teamgroup: There is no information about the write endurance in terms of TBW. The is a 3-year warranty, that's all. Teamgroup's monitoring software "SSD ToolBox" has the normal functions like SSD's general health, life remaining, SMART codes, etc etc like Samsung Magician and Crucial Storage Executive, but no settings for Over-provisioning. One glaring thing missing: there is no option to upgrade firmware. There is no firmware update for the entire L5 Lite 3D lineup. However for the TEAM L5 Lite 3D, there are SSDs with at least 4 firmware versions out there:
Q0410A, Q0526A, Q0607A, Q0727A. My particular sample has the Q0410A firmware.
After opening the casing (breaking the "warranty void" sticker), the TLC 3D NAND chips have no markings at all. So no one knows whether Teamgroup is sourcing the parts from a reputable manufacturer like Intel, Micron, Toshiba, SK Hynix. The only known components are the DRAM supplier (Nanya DDR3L) and the controller (Silicon Motion SM2258G).

Other Thoughts: Here is my recommendation: Buy this product if it is really really cheap (heavily discounted), don't have any expectations for this product. If it works, it works great. But the product is a bit of a mystery. No TBW endurance ratings, no firmware updates, different firmwares exist for the lineup. Unknown 3D TLC NAND chips. Long term reliability and/or endurance UNKNOWN, unless TeamGroup is more transparent. My sample works well inside USB enclosure with the ASM1153E bridge chip which passes the TRIM command via USB to the SSD. I want to give a 5-egg review for this product, but TeamGroup still has some work to do. For the above reasons, minus 1 egg.

Not that great.

Pros: drive was nice while it worked

Cons: drive stopped working within 3 months. worked fine before then but then just start corrupting all my data. thankfully i didnt put anything i needed on it. i barely used it and didnt even have it 1/4th of the way full, yet it still failed. my latest attempts to even scan the drive to see whats wrong with it cause the drive to hang and never respond.

Other Thoughts: This is my first SSD and likely my last. ive never in my life had a drive fail so suddenly or badly. all the mechanical drives i ever had fail all gave me signs before they failed. very disappointed in this product. should have payed a little more and got a better brand.
