Solid State Drives use flash memory and as such offer high data transfer rates (read/write speeds) when installed in a notebook or desktop PC. There are no moving parts in an SSD which means they require less power to operate. Lower power consumption gives longer notebook usage time and because there are no moving parts the drive operates silently.
The SATA-II SSD is shock and vibration resistant making it more durable in harsher environments, and offers faster system performance than a standard hard drive.
Verbatim SATA-II SSD feature SMART command support, Trim command support (Windows 7), and Native Command Queueing (NCQ) support.
