1.8″ Solid State Drive, SATA III, MLC-SLC


1.8" Micro SATA, SATAprime

amp inc’s 1.8″ SATA III SSD Solid State External Hard Drive is a high performance and high reliability storage device based on NAND Flash technology that is designed to solve the “bottlenecking” of computing system by traditional hard disk drives. With zero moving parts, the 1.8″ SATA III SSD has same host interface and physical dimensions as a hard disk drive. With high performance and low power consumption, amp inc’s 1.8″ SATA III SSD can store a large amount of data for many different operating systems without the large footprint and weight.

amp inc’s 1.8″ SATA III SSD provides protection against shock and vibration that are common in extreme environments. Also contains a highly advanced flash memory management algorithm system to guarantee higher performance and data integrity.
