Product Overview


Boost Your Original System HDD Read Speed without Reinstalling OS

HDDBOOST is a unique product that combines the best qualities of traditional hard drive and solid state disk (SSD) into one virtual super storage solution. Depending on the speed of the SSD added, the HDDBOOST can increase the performance of an existing host hard drive up to 70%(base on SSD performance)! This speed increase is very noticeable and significant for any PC users that have not experienced using SSD drives before. For those who are not ready to compromise on storage capacity and reliability for speed, HDDBOOST will enable SSD speed on its host hard drive and reduce the write times to SSD’s more fragile flash-based storage system, thus extending its effective lifetime. Initial production run of HDDBOOST (serial number AC09520711 to AC09521708) has USB pin header and cable included for firmware upgrade, but subsequent product runs of HDDBOOST no longer have them. All HDDBOOST (including ones from the initial product run) can be firmware updated via SATA connector so USB connectors are no longer necessary. SilverStone strongly recommends updating firmware in advance of product installation. If your HDDBOOST is from the initial product run (serial number AC09520711 to AC09521708), please update the firmware at your earliest convenience for enhanced compatibility with latest SSD.




Features
• Boost your original system HDD read speed without reinstalling OS
• Minimum SSD data write times help extend SSD life-cycle
• Easy to install
• Compatible with most of 2.5” SATA SSD

If you've used a computer for any duration of time you'll have come across the terms “kilobyte, megabyte, gigabyte” and so on. Then there's “kilobit, megabit and gigabit” to add a bit of confusion and to top it all off you've maybe heard or read terms like “gibibyte” on occasion.

Reviews
Silverstone HDDBOOST, 2.5" SATA SSD inc 3.5" Enclosure, HDD Speed Booster is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea let down by poor implementation Did eventually get this up and running but not as smoothly as you would think. For a start the utility in windows which does the sync work is very basic and when it fails, does not even give you an indication of what went wrong let alone any possible remedies. Also the latest firmwares do not seem to work well, the latest of which actually stopped me from booting back into windows. Silverstone support were also not very helpful, simply offering the advice to wipe everything and start installing form scratch.\if they could sort out the firmware, it software it could be a really handy device.
