Renew your computer with little cost
Dedicated to providing high quality products for budget-minded consumers, the S55 is positioned as one of the most cost-effective models. With advanced SATA III 6Gb/s interface and affordable prices, everyone can get old computers upgraded without spending a fortune.
Truly a time saver!
Still waste time booting up your computer or loading applications? It's time to get rid of your old hard drive and switch to a SSD. Powered by SATA III 6Gbps interface, the S55 is able to boot up your computer and launch applications within seconds.
Upgrade with easy DIY steps
Easy and effortless to upgrade your computer. Only 3 steps to get it renewed!
Step1. Backup your data to other storage devices
Step2. Remove the old HDD from your computer
Step3. Insert the SSD in your computer
Equipped with original controller and selected NAND Flash, the S55 can not only guarantee the stability and durability of the SSD but also deliver outstanding performance that enables 10-second quick boot up, shorter application load time and faster data transmission speed. No matter it comes to paperwork, web-surfing or video watching, you can enjoy the lag-free experience.
We care more about your data with higher reliability
If a new disk contains one or more bad blocks, this may cause irreparable damages to your system. However, the S55 is built with Bad Block Management, which can continually monitor and replace bad blocks to keep your system in good condition with prolonged lifespan of the SSD. This is why the V70 offers a lower capacity than other SSD, we have sacrificed capacity for durability and reliability because we care more about your DATA!
Multiple techniques supported
The S55 is one of the lightest and thinnest SSD of its kind yet it is shock- and vibration-proof since it contains no moving parts. Furthermore, S.M.A.R.T. monitoring system and ECC technology are built to promise higher data transmission safety.
SLC Cache Technology
S55 especially applies the "SLC Cache technology", which adopts the new caching architecture that combines both SLC and TLC flash blocks. The implementation of such technology enables all data to be written in the SLC portion first and then sequentially copied to TLC, therefore leading to higher peak writing performance. In addition, the S55 also uses "DRAM buffer cache" to further improve overall performance. Moreover, such technology can reduce write amplification on the TLC portion and thus offer better endurance and longer lifespan of the SSD.
Internal Auto-copy technology
The Internal Auto-copy technology allows automatic copy operation from SLC cache to TLC blocks inside the NAND without using the controller or DDR, which can encourage higher efficiency by reducing the burden from the controller and DRAM.
