"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

Breakthrough Speed Performance
Transfer rates of up to 550MB/s Read and 515MB/s Write. Typically over 50% faster boot times over hard drives.

Extreme Durability
No moving parts ? much more durable and reliable than traditional hard drives that use a spinning disk

Less Power Consumption
Typically provides up to 13% longer battery life, is more energy efficient, and runs cooler than a traditional hard drive

Ultra Secure
Full Disk Encryption (FDE) ? 256-bit AES hardware encryption secures 100% of data when enabled.**

SandForce Driven – Utilizes the SandForce SF-2281 controller for elite performance and reliability.

Note: Based on EDGE testing results. Performance may vary depending on OS, configuration, etc.

Consult your computers manual to ensure drive encryption is a supported function of the BIOS.

EDGE Boost Pro Solid State Drives (SSDs) are designed to be a direct replacement for traditional spinning disk hard drives. The result is a faster, lighter, more durable, and more reliable solution primed to replace outdated hard drives forever. Boost Pro SSDs are both PC and Mac compatible and will work in almost any computer or server with a SATA interface. EDGE offers various notebook, desktop, and server upgrade kits designed to make the transition to SSDs a smooth and easy operation.

Utilizing the premium SandForce SF-2281 controller, the Boost Pro SSD can achieve ultra fast read and write speeds of up to 550MB/s and 515MB/s respectively. In comparison to hard drives, SSDs can cut system boot times by 50%. Fast read/write speeds, coupled with an 85,000 max IOPS rating, provide fantastic performance gains in common tasks such as file transfers and loading software applications.

A traditional hard drive can be compared to a car—with so many moving mechanical components constantly in use, parts inevitably wear out over time. With no moving parts inside, Boost Pro SSDs are more reliable and less susceptible to mechanical failures than hard drives. This also results in longer notebook battery life, lower heat emission, and completely silent operation.

Security is a critical feature of Boost Pro SSDs, featuring 256-bit AES hardware encryption that secures 100% of data when enabled. The feature rich?SandForce controller comes standard with robust tools such as TRIM, S.M.A.R.T., Garbage Collection, wear leveling, and ECC to promote stability and reliability. SandForce?exclusive functions— Durawrite and RAISE—further enhance data efficiency and increase the lifespan of the SSD.

The Boost Pro SSD is quite possibly the best upgrade you will ever make to your system—make the switch from archaic hard drives today.

Note: When used in a SATA 6Gb/s system. Boost Pro SSDs will work in a SATA 3Gb/s system, but operate at a slower speed. Consult your systems user manual to ensure it can perform at SATA 6Gb/s speeds.
