TOSHIBA INTRODUCES THE OCZ VX500 SATA SSD SERIES.

Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc. (TAEC) has introduced the OCZ VX500 SATA solid state drive (SSD) series. Aimed at mainstream desktop and notebook users looking to migrate away from primary hard disc drive (HDD) usage, VX500 SSDs feature superior endurance ratings1 and provide a faster, more responsive PC experience thanks to well-balanced read and write performance2.

Backed by OEM-level testing that provides validated reliability and built with the latest Toshiba MLC NAND flash, the Toshiba OCZ VX500 SSD series delivers endurance ratings of 74 to 592 terabytes written (TBW)3, making it suitable for write-intensive applications such as content creation, revolving media/game storage, or as a scratch disk.

The Toshiba OCZ VX500 series is designed to thrive in mixed workload environments representative of mainstream users who need increased performance4 to take their everyday computing to the next level. With sequential read/write speeds of up to 550 MB/s and 515 MB/s, and random read/write performance of up to 92,000 and 65,000 4KiB5 input/output operations per second (IOPS)6, VX500 SSDs can significantly boost system productivity compared to HDD storage. Users can also count on enhanced durability and power consumption over their hard drives, as well as quality lightweight housing weighing in at only 54g.

The OCZ VX500 SATA SSD series will be available in four different capacities ranging from 128GB to 1024GB8 and will be backed by a 5-year Advanced Warranty Program9, created to provide reliable customer service and mitigates the frustration surrounding warranty and support claims. Additionally, each VX500 SSD comes bundled with Acronis True Image10 cloning software for users to easily transfer their data to the new SSD and enjoy a smooth upgrade experience.
