The veteran brand will try to provide quality competition for its products סמסונג And SanDisk
Number of USB drivesSSD The market is starting to grow recently, which is a very encouraging sign for anyone interested in a product that is only slightly larger than a USB storage drive but can deliver a more impressive level of performance and volumes (at slightly more pricey levels). This time it is brand Plextor Of LiteOn, which comes to the developing market with an absolutely intriguing product.
The company's new EX1 drives are reminiscent of "classic" elongated USB drives, and include a material array that includes Marvel's 88SS1074 controller, planar TLC chips created in Toshiba's 15 nanometer lithography, based cache DDR3, LDPC error correction mechanism, support for SLC-like cache layer,USB 3.1 Type C Gen.2 (thanks to a VIA bridge controller) for theoretical speeds of up to 10 Gigabit per second, which should ensure that no bottleneck is created that limits the internal hardware capabilities.
This entire array creates an exterior drive made of neat, rounded aluminum with a weight of only thirty grams - and with a guaranteed performance of up to 550 megabytes per second in read and up to 500 megabytes per second in writing, in 128 gigabytes, 256 c GB and 512 GB.
B-Plextor Announced immediately upon the disclosure of the Exxnumx decision to extend the duration of the warranty from three years to five years, which certainly adds bonus points for us (although it is not sure that the maximum extent of writing also changed, so this addition may be relevant only for those who do Moderate use of the product).
Official data for the random performance of the EX1 models were not disclosed, however First review Provided us with 30,000IOPS data to read and write 4KB files on the QD32, which are certainly nice for the external drive world and have earned the model quite a few compliments.
We do not yet know the official recommended prices for EX1 drives, but one specific network report declares a possible cost of 80 euros for the base model, 120 euros for the mid-model 256GB and 210 euros for the largest model - and we hope and keep our fingers crossed that prices are The real ones will be even more competitive, and will be able to put pressure on the veteran competitors in the category to make all prices more accessible and popular.
