Specifications, Pricing and Availability
Apacer is offering the TurboII-AS602 in three separate capacities; 60GB, 120GB and 240GB. All three are rated at 285MB/s read and 275MB/s write speeds and feature 24 Bytes per 512 Bytes ECC. These figures are pretty much standard for SandForce consumer drives. Apacer takes the standard SandForce drive and escalates the package with two different options.
The first is what we are looking at today; the Notebook Upgrade Kit which features everything you need to quickly and easily clone your notebook drive with Acronis True Image HD and a USB 2.0 to SATA cable. The Desktop Upgrade Kit includes the same drive cloning software, but replaces the USB 2.0 to SATA cable with 2.5" to 3.5" brackets that are used to install your TurboII Series-AS602 in a standard desktop HDD bay.
SSDs are great for notebook environments, especially if you travel with your notebook. The AS602 has a shock rating of 1500Gs and can withstand vibration up to 15Gs. There is nothing worse than checking into your hotel after a long flight and learning that your HDD has crashed due to vibration.
The AS602 also has a max power draw of only 390mA and an idle mode draw of 135mA. We've seen SandForce SF-1200 drives pull as much as 500mA when used with older flash memory, so Apacer has done a very good job of reducing power consumption by selecting premium components.
We had a difficult time finding the new TurboII-AS602 available in Australia and in the global market. This is a new product, so it may take some time to hit retail and e-tail outlets.
Apacer has an industry leading 5 year warranty on their high speed TurboII-AS602 SSD which gives you peace of mind when at the time of the sale, since you know you are covered for the long haul.
