Silicon Power Announces Ultra Fast 2.5" SATA SSD, The E20

 

A New Prospect in Computer Storage

 

November 30, 2010, Taipei, Taiwan ~Leading flash memory manufacturer, Silicon Power today unleashes their new 2.5" SATA solid state drive (SSD) ~ E20, a new prospect in computer storage! The new E20 challenges SSD limitations with uniquely developed technology to boost read speeds up to 250MB/s and write speeds up to 230MB/s, both data transfer rates surpass the major SSD on the market today. In addition, E20 also supports TRIM Command. It is specifically for Windows 7 users, allowing for swift tens of seconds OS startup time and instant application and software use. For users using other OS, E20 provides Garbage Collection Technology. It enhances SSD's already strong performances and prevents poor computer responses from long hours of continuous use. It is the ingredient to achieving twice the result with half the effort!

Silicon Power's brand new SSD E20 proposes effective and practical solutions for most common problems faced by users today:

 

DDR2 DRAM Cache Memory Implementation

 

Users are most concerned with lag when using computers as it affects workflow and efficiency. With E20's built-in DDR2 DRAM Cache Memory, even during continuous intensive-write situations, computers shall lag no more! This feature not only enhances SSD's read and write performances, it also extends SSD's lifespan.

 

Circuit Current Sensor

 

During read and write, users most dread irregular current supply resulting in data lost or corruption. Silicon Power's E20 has specially added circuit current sensors to detect fluctuating or abnormal current to effectively protect your personal data!

 

S.M.A.R.T Support

 

Through Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.), user can monitor the health of E20.

 

Meeting various user needs, Silicon Power's 2.5" SATA SSD conforms in standard dimensions, it is easy to install into desktops, laptops or other 2.5 inch hard disk drive compatible devices. Silicon Power insists on producing consistent high quality products. The E20 uses high grade controllers and high quality flash memory modules. Users of E20 will find themselves immersed in the perfection of noiseless operation and ultra high performances of Silicon Power's E20!

 

Breaking through traditional SSD dull looks, the E20 is coated in gold and bluish-green color coordination resembling the passionate flame and lightening speed!
