AData 240GB SSD - Solid State Drive - AS511S3-240GM-C
240GB AData AS511S3-240GM-C, 2.5", SATA III - 6Gb/s, MLC-Flash SSD, Read 550Mb/s, Write 520Mb/s, 60k IOPS
Features High-speed read and write performance enhances computing efficiency
Currently, the major processor platforms are gradually making the changeover to native SATA 6Gb/s chips. However, traditional mechanical drives are not capable of the corresponding high-speed read and write tasks. The result is that some newly-purchased computers can only utilize a fraction of the performance available when equipped with a traditional hard drive. The S511 solid state drive provides vibration-free running and low power consumption while taking full advantage of the 6Gb bandwidth transmission capability. In both desktop and laptop computers, and in a broad range of computing environments, SSDs built to the latest specification an irreplaceable advantage.
Solid state drives are the best choice when buying a new computer
With the increasing popularity of computing with the use of more diverse applications, computational speed has become a major consideration when buying computers. In video editing, large picture retouching, and computer drafting, reading and writing operations rely on fast and stable data storage.
The S511 adopts specially selected Flash chips from reliable manufacturers, and supports the Windows TRIM command. In both desktop and notebook computers, users will enjoy an unprecedented high-speed experience.
What is the Windows TRIM command optimizing component?
If your computer is running the Windows 7 operating system, the Windows TRIM optimization command can directly delete stored data in the Flash memory and release unused space (Free Blocks) to be used for system writes immediately. This results in more accelerated transfer and write performance for solid state drives, and is also effective in slowing down efficiency decline and depletion chances, maintaining effective operation and extending the life of the disk.

You've learnt all about the virtues of solid-state drives in a previous guide, but today we're delving deeper by taking a look at the two types of NAND flash memory typically available in modern SSDs; SLC and MLC.
Date Issued: 7th May 2010
Solid-state drives (SSDs) are fast becoming the must-have PC components of 2010. Serving as primary storage space for high-end computers, SSD's super-fast transfer rates and near-instant accesses offer genuine advantages over traditional spindle-based magnetic drives.
