For those who eagerly pursue performance speed, but have hesitated because of the steeper costs over traditional drives, ADATA has launched an entry-level solid state drive (SSD), the S396. It offers a new chance to attain the high speeds of the latest performance standard.

Solving the problem of sluggish mechanical drives

After extended periods of use, many computers see a marked decrease in system speed. Long waits can occur both in booting the system and when opening applications. It is often difficult for ordinary users to upgrade the CPU, and the motherboard may not have available slots for the addition of more memory. In fact, the bottleneck of traditional hard drives is the disk transfer speed. Because the method by which SSDs transfer data is entirely different from that of conventional hard drives, SSDs provide markedly higher speeds. In addition, SSDs have further advantages of low heat-discharge, low power-consumption, lightweight structure, and high impact resistance, all good reasons to choose this route for computer upgrades.

Entry Level Price, Top Level Transmission Efficiency

ADATA has invested significant time and resources in the development of SSD products, and has worked tirelessly to bring to the market products that closely match consumer demands. Research has revealed that in computer operation times, a significant proportion a large portion of computing tasks involve transfers of data packets 4KB in size. This means that the performance of 4KB file transmission plays a critical role in users’ experience. The S396 runs at 44 thousand Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) in transfers of files this size, and is the most cost competitive among similar products.

The S396 comes in two packaging configurations, to meet your specific needs

Desktop Pack
Comes with a 3.5-inch conversion bracket to help you mount the S396 when you are upgrading a desktop computer, allowing you to immediately enhance the performance and transmission speed of your operating system.

Notebook Pack
The S396 Notebook Pack allows you to easily upgrade your laptop computer with a premium solid state drive, while using the original hard disk as an external drive. To make use of the S396 as an internal disk drive for your laptop, simply remove the existing hard disk, and install the S396 into the laptop drive slot. Install the old hard disk in the case provided, and continue to use it as either an external or portable drive. It also comes with a 3.5-inch conversion bracket to help you mount the S396 when you are upgrading a desktop computer.
