SP/Silicon Power, the world's leading provider of memory storage solutions today introduces Velox V55 and Slim S55 to its 2.5 inch SATA III 6Gb/s solid state drive line. The new additions complete the product line and are positioned as one of the most cost effective models. Offering incredible performance at a surprisingly affordable price, it is no wonder that V55 and S55 are the smartest choices for users who are looking to upgrade their system to a SSD. Dedicated to providing high quality products for the budget minded consumers, SP is proud to present V55 and S55 which feature the latest SATA 6Gb/s interface with an impressive read/write speed of up to 550 MB/s and 440 MB/s. The V55 and S55 are ideal for computer enthusiasts, gamers and multitaskers wishing to take their computing experience to a new level; they can boot a computer in seconds and load applications in a much shorter time. Unlike the standard SSD that is typically bulky and rigid, the SP V55 features a sleek aluminum case with a thickness of just 9mm and can be installed in desktop PCs or the standard notebooks. With merely 7mm in thickness, the S55 takes it to the next level and is perfect for ultrabooks or ultra slim notebooks. The V55 and S55 are more reliable and durable than a hard drive. They are also more resistant to shock and vibration as they contain no moving parts. The two models are currently available in 60GB, 120GB and 240GB, and are both backed by a three year warranty.
