Solid State Drives are like super soldiers – they are more energy efficient, more compact, lighter, faster, quieter, cooler, tougher and stronger as compared to their â€œrun of the millâ€ platter-powered 7,200 RPM disk drive cousins. Having the primary benefit of having no mechanically moving parts, they can even do far better than HDD’s labeled as â€œperformance drivesâ€ . Technically, SSD’s are the future of hard drives and SanDisk is going full speed ahead to join the next generation of storage solutions with their very own G3 Solid State Drive. The SanDisk G3 SSD boasts up to 220 Mb/sec read speeds and up to 120 Mb/sec write speed; that means it can open, close and run applications twice as fast as some 7,200 HDDs. The G3 was engineered to withstand everyday shock and vibrations and due to its Olympic-like endurance, it can also hold out at least 80 TERABYTES of data written and rewritten all over it. Here’s the lay down of some of the basic specs of the G3:
• Capacities: 60GB and 120GB
• Interface: SATA 3Gb/s
• Measurements: 9.5 x 100.5 x 69.85mm
• Weight: 65 grams
• Shock Resistant: 1500G @ 0.5 msec
• Vibration: 20G, 10- 2000Hz
• Operating temperature: 0?C to 70?C
• Power Active: 0.4W
SanDisk is so confident about the quality and performance of their drive that they didn’t bat an eyelash when they labeled the G3 with a whooping 10 years limited warranty. Now that’s a keeper.
