Product Features:


More Than Just a Solid Performance

Equipped with a high quality controller to provide outstanding system performance. An ideal boot-up disk that can significantly reduce boot time while accelerating application loading and response processes.

Incredible Speeds

The ultra-fast SATA III 6Gb/s transfer interface delivers incredible sequential transfer rates of up to 560 MB/s read and 530 MB/s write that enable shorter boot time, faster application loading and quicker file execution.

SLC Cache Technology

The S56 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.

Bad block management for higher reliability – because we truly care about your data

Even new disks can contain one or more bad blocks that may cause irreparable damage to your system. But have no fear! To prevent flash memory corruption, the S56 is built with bad block management technology. Bad blocks are continually monitored and replaced to keep your system in good condition and to improve reliability and endurance of the SSD, because we truly care about your data.

Multiple techniques supported

The S56 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.
