Introduction

 

Apacer is known for their industrial products in the US, but in Australia and the rest of the APAC region their consumer product line competes with many of the big names that compete globally. Apacer offers many product types, from USB hubs to media players and flash products. Their latest offering is what is putting Apacer in the TweakTown spotlight today; an ultra fast SandForce based SSD that rivals those coming from the US.

 

The Apacer TurboII-Series AS602 ships with one of the best accessory packages we've seen to date, and the drive itself has the best aluminum case we've seen since the Patriot Inferno. There are two distinct packages for the AS602; a desktop upgrade kit that includes 2.5" to 3.5" drive rails and a notebook upgrade kit that includes a USB to SATA cable that makes cloning your existing drive with Acronis (included) easier. Both packages also include a rubber drive surround that adds extra drive protection and keeps your drive from being scratched.

 

The SandForce SF-1200 consumer SSD controller is the best SATA 3G controller on the market and provides outstanding performance with 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write speeds. Before we get too far along, let's take a look at the specifications.
