Description

Solid-State Hybrid Drives by Toshiba: SSD-like performance at up to 1 TB capacity at the cost of HDDs

A paradigm change is happening in the PC and notebook spaces, as Solid State Drives (SSDs) based on NAND Flash memory are outpacing conventional hard drives (HDDs) with rotating magnetic platters. SSDs deliver thousands of read/write operations per second and make your system react much faster, almost eliminating waiting times. Toshiba offers a full range of SSDs, but they do not always make sense: if you need high capacities you better go for hard drives, and current cost per gigabyte still prevents an SSD purchase for users on a budget.

Can't go for SSD? Try SSHD

There is a way to combine the best of both worlds, and it is by adding high-speed NAND Flash to a high-capacity hard drive. Solid State Hybrid Drives (SSHDs) join these two technologies to realise high performance and high capacities in a single storage product. Toshiba is the logical choice for an SSHD, as it is one of the leading providers of both NAND Flash and hard drive products, designing and manufacturing all relevant components in-house.

Get superior performance and the typical reliability you trust. Toshiba SSHDs offer up to 1 TB of storage combined with an 8 GB NAND Flash memory area. The Flash memory utilisation is self-sufficient and works with all operating systems by simply copying frequently used data into the Flash memory area. This introduces a significant performance increase for all repeating workloads or for repeating use of data. As a simple example, Windows and everyday applications such as your browser or email client are pinned into the Flash memory and start up noticeably faster.

Boot times can be as long as 6 minutes other times 50 seconds. Half of the time taken than original hard drive. The lap top is a Dell Inspiron N5510, windows 7 8 gig of ram i7 processor. Also Dell PC Doctors now crashes when performing a system diagnostic.
