ADATA has come up with a new solid state drive aimed at first time upgraders who are switching from a traditional hard disk drive and are looking for an affordable yet reliable SSD.
The Premier SP580 drive comes in 120GB and 240GB capacities and offers pretty impressive performance for an affordable SSD. It uses a Marvell controller and supports SLC caching technology for better performance. Thanks to a high TBW (total bytes written) rating, LDPC ECC (low density parity check error correcting code), and DEVSLP (device sleep) functionality, the Premier SP580 offers high durability and great power efficiency at an affordable price point.
As far as performance is concerned, ADATA claims the drive offers maximum sequential read speeds of up to 560 MB/s and maximum sequential write speeds of up to 410 MB/s. The Premier SP580 is bundled with a 2.5mm spacer, which means you will be able to easily install it in a desktop PC, notebook or even an ultrabook.
