So what makes Silicon Power’s new SATA II SSD M10 drive unique? They gave it two interface connectors–in the form of SATA II and USB–allowing it to work as either a portable external drive or an internal SSD drive. Silicon Power covered all the bases for the dual interface idea to work; it looks good enough for external purposes with a stylized shell, and it’s sized like a regular 2.5-inch hard drive so installing it into a chassis shouldn’t be a problem.
The drive is available in 32GB-256GB capacities and features Error Correction Code (ECC) and flash block Wear Leveling technology to give it reliability and longevity. Of course, as a solid state disk, it has no moving parts, so it trumps regular disk-based hard drives on ruggedness, transfer speeds, and power consumption.
The M10 comes with a 2-year warranty. Price and availability isn’t available at the moment.
