Lite-On announces its first SSD in the UK market
Andy Ruffell / 6 years ago
Lite-On has recently announced its first SSD for the UK market, the E200, aimed at small/medium business users with the need for consistent and reliable performance at an affordable cost.
“With the E200 we aim to challenge the concept that SSDs are an unaffordable luxury for SMB; our aim is that smaller companies will be able to experience the increased speed and performance that a fast SSD provides,” says Maarten Souren, Marketing Manager at Lite-On.
The E200 is not much different from the other SSDs, as it offers read and write speeds of 503Mb/s and 265 Mb/s with random read and write speeds (4K) of up to 71,000 IOPS and 64,000 IOPS. All of which on a SATA 6Gbps interface with a Marvell controller and high-quality NAND Toggle flash providing speed and stability.
To counter the decrease in performance due to prolonged and heavy use, the E200 has been designed to True Speed certification standards. Combining the Marvell controller and the Instant Restore function of the firmware, the E200 will optimise data and prepare unused space for use. This function continuously works in the background, even with operating systems that don’t support the TRIM command. True Speed therefore ensures the efficiency of the drive to remain consistent throughout its lifespan.
The drive will be available in the 80 and 160GB capacities, will come with a three year warranty and a 3.5″ bracket for additional compatibility. No word on the price, however the E200 from Lite-On will be available starting April 2012.
