Silicon Power S55 240GB
Silicon Power S55 Solid State Drive
Affordable Upgrade for Everyone
A high-quality product for the budget-minded among us, the S55 is positioned as one of the most cost-effective SSD models. With its advanced SATA III 6Gb/s interface and an affordable price, you can now easily upgrade your old computer without spending a fortune.
Time is Money! Don't Waste It
Still wasting precious time while booting your computer or loading applications? Then it's time to get rid of your old hard drive and switch to an SSD. Powered by SATA III 6GB/s interface, the S55 is able to boot your computer or launch applications within seconds.
Durability and Performance
Equipped with an original controller and selected NAND flash, the S55 can not only guarantee stability and durability. It also delivers outstanding performance which enables 10-second quick boot-ups, shorter application load times and faster data transmission speed. Whether you are web surfing, enjoying a good movie, or have to handle paperwork, the S55 will bring you a smooth, lag-free experience.
Bad Block Management for Higher Reliability
Even new disks can contain one or more bad blocks which may cause irreparable damage to your system. But have no fear! To prevent flash memory corruption, the S55 is built with bad block management technology. Bad blocks are continually monitored and replaced to keep your system in good condition and to improve reliability and endurance of the SSD. Because we do care about your data.
Internal Auto-Copy Technology
The S55’s auto-copy technology allows automatic copy operations from the SLC cache to the TLC blocks inside the NAND without using the controller or DDR. This supports higher efficiency by reducing the controller’s and DRAM’s workload.
SLC Cache Technology
The S55 applies ”SLC Cache technology” with a new caching architecture that combines both SLC and TLC flash blocks. This technology enables all data to be written in the SLC section before being sequentially copied to the TLC block, and as a consequence allows for higher peak writing performance. The S55 also uses “DRAM buffer cache” to improve overall performance and to reduce write amplification on the TLC portion. This leads to enhanced endurance and a longer lifespan of the SSD.
Light and S.M.A.R.T.
The S55 is one of the lightest and thinnest SSDs of its kind yet it is shock- and vibration-proof, because it contains no moving parts. Equipped with a S.M.A.R.T. monitoring system and ECC (error correction code) technology, it also promises higher data transmission safety.
