Product Features, Specifications

Product Features:


Reliable performance and quality


The S57 allows superior performances and offers longer lifespan of the SSD with advanced SATA III 6Gb/s interface and the "SLC Cache Technology". The optimized processor guarantees the stability and durability of the SSD.


Slim S57 Performance multiplied by Marvell controller


Powered by Marvell controller, the S57 is that delivers impressive operation speeds and greater function performance. It provides the lag-free experience with features of quick boot-up, fast data transmission speed, smooth video watching and effective system operation.


SLC Cache Technology


The S57 especially applies the ”SLC Cache technology”, which adopts the new caching architecture that combines both SLC and TLC flash blocks. The implementation of such technology enables all data to be written in the SLC portion first and then sequentially copied to TLC, therefore leading to higher peak writing performance.


Internal Auto-copy technology


The Internal Auto-copy technology allows automatic copy operation from SLC cache to TLC blocks inside the NAND without using the controller or DDR, which can encourage higher efficiency by reducing the burden from the controller and DRAM.


We care more about your data with higher reliability


If a new disk contains one or more bad blocks, this may cause irreparable damages to your system. However, the S57 is built with Bad Block Management, which can continually monitor and replace bad blocks to keep your system in good condition with prolonged lifespan of the SSD. This is why the S57 offers a lower capacity than other SSD, we have sacrificed capacity for durability and reliability because we care more about your DATA!


Multiple techniques supported


The S57 is one of the lightest and thinnest SSD of its kind yet it is shock- and vibration-proof since it contains no moving parts. Furthermore, S.M.A.R.T. monitoring system and ECC technology are built to promise higher data transmission safety.


SP ToolBox Free-download Software


SP Toolbox was developed for using with SP SSDs and Industrial Flash products, and provides multiple ways for users to obtain disk information, and to change settings easily. Additionally, it is an advanced and user-friendly software that makes it easier than ever to maintain a healthy and efficient device.
