Beyond the Box
OCZ SSDs deliver lasting performance and reliability long after the initial ‘fresh-out-of-the-box’ experience.
The SSD Advantage
SSD technology enables 100x greater throughput, quicker boot ups, faster file transfers, and overall snappier performance than hard drives.
More Bang for the Buck
When considering performance per dollar, SSDs are more cost-effective than their mechanical counterparts.
The non-mechanical design of NAND flash mounted to circuit boards is extremely durable, unlike HDDs and their rotating disks and seeking spindles.
SSDs use significantly less power than hard drives, promoting a longer battery life in notebooks, less power consumption, and a greener computing environment.
With no moving parts, SSDs run virtually silent in your notebook or PC to eliminate distracting noise during gaming or entertainment.
