Silicon Power UD80 M.2 2280 1TB PCIe 3.0 SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2022-07-15

UD80 1TB PCIe 3.0 SSD from Silicon Power incorporates the MAXIO MAP1202 controller which offers a low-cost DRAMless solution and is paired with four 3D NAND ICs from a brand we could not easily identify. As a caching solution, HMB is used so the performance of the drive is strictly dependent on the computer configuration. The drive can be picked up with capacities from 250GB and up to 2TB and thanks to the fact that it functions with excellent thermals, it can be installed in most compatible laptops as well!

Product Features, Specifications

Product Features:


A Well-Balanced PCIe Gen3x4 for All

The UD80 strikes a perfect harmony between cost and performance to breathe new life into your system without burning a hole in your pocket. Designed for creators that need more than just a jolt of inspiration, the UD80 provides exceptional value and a performance boost with a PCIe Gen3x4 interface – a boost that leaves SATA III SSDs behind in the dust!

Create Faster with Reduced Waiting Times

The UD80 utilizes the speed capabilities of PCIe 3.0 with the efficiency of NVMe and Host Memory Buffer (HMB) technology. Let your creative juices flow with rapid read and write speeds up to 3,400MB/s and 3,000MB/s, respectively. At the same time, experience seamless productivity via the higher performance and lower latency that's achieved by NVMe 1.4 and HMB technology.

More Storage in A Versatile Form Factor

Far superior to its 2D counterpart, the UD80 features 3D NAND flash technology, which allows for greater storage density on the versatile M.2 2280 form factor. Easily install this small form factor in laptops, small form factor PC systems, and some ultrabooks to instantly gain up to 2TB of extra storage capacity.

Speed Meets Reliability

An SSD's speed is meaningless without the ability to handle that speed reliably. The UD80 achieves improved sequential read/write and random read/write performance with support for SLC Caching. At the same time, it supports low density parity check (LDPC) coding to ensure accuracy of data transmission and reliability of data access.

Safe And Secure Data Storage

The UD80 supports RAID to protect data in the case of a drive failure. It's also equipped with built-in E2E data protection for enhanced data transfer integrity. Unexpected things can happen at any moment, but the UD80 is prepared for them with your data at its utmost priority.
