The Monster Digital SSD
Monster is a household name in the audio/video industry with a reputation for superior quality. Ramjet recommends their latest SSD because it is designed with the Mac user in mind. Simplicity is key -- every Monster Digital SSD comes with an easy Upgrade Kit that can be done in 3 simple steps. The Upgrade Kit includes:
- USB 3.0 to SATA3 cable
- Cloning software CD
- Mac ready tools (screwdriver)
More Speed, More Battery Life
Significantly lower power consumption translates into extending the life of your battery by 17%, compared to a 5400 RPM factory installed rotating hard disk drive. The MD-550 is also extremely fast, operating at 550 MB/s peak speed. A typical 7200 RPM rotating hard drive runs at 20-80 MB/s.
10x the Reliability
A Monster Digital SSD is built with flash chips so there are no moving parts. That means:
- Less mechanical failure
- Substantially more resistant to shock and vibration than rotating hard drives
- Quieter operation
- Less heat generated than rotating hard drives
