Supporting the SATA III 6 Gb/s interface and built around a powerful SandForce SF2281 controller, the MSA720 delivers blazing fast sequential performance. The MSA720's compact mSATA form factor is just one-eighth the size of a standard 2.5" SSD, making it perfect for use in space-restricted portable devices such as Ultrabooks, tablet PCs, and slim servers.

Enhanced performance
Combining the SATA III 6 Gbps specification with a powerful SandForce driven controller, the MSA720 is able to offer incredible transfer speeds of up to 550 Mbps read and 520 Mbps write, taking a mere 15 seconds to transfer a 4.7GB DVD. This ultra fast speed translates into significantly faster system boot up, application launch speed, data transfers, and overall system responsiveness. Moreover, support for Native Command Queuing (NCQ), increases the performance and efficiency of the MSA720 by optimizing the order in which received read and write commands are executed.

High-end applications
The MSA720 boasts an ultra-slim to address the size limitations of today's modern Ultrabooks, notebooks, and other thin and light form factor devices. The MSA720 fits the standard dimensions of mSATA hard disk drives and is backwards compatible with SATA II/I (3 Gbps/1.5 Gbps) connection options. MSA720 not only provides resistance from shock and vibration, but also offers low power consumption, silent operation to greatly benefit notebook users with increased efficiency and longer battery runtime.

Built-in reliability
For operating systems that do not support the TRIM command, the MSA720 utilizes an intelligent garbage collection algorithm for advanced free space management. To further increase the lifespan of the SSD, built-in wear-leveling and Error Correction Code (ECC) ensure reliable data transfer, while full support of the S.M.A.R.T. command helps detect possible hard drive failures before they occur.


Product Highlights
  • DuraWrite technology effectively extends flash endurance
  • S.M.A.R.T., TRIM and NCQ support to maintain a healthy, efficient SSD
  • Intelligent block management and wear leveling
