The kind of performance one gets with an SSD is high but so is the price per GB. A thickness of just 7 mm makes this drive one of the thinnest and fit for the modern thin form factor ultra books, thanks to its single platter design. The other
innovation in this drive is the usage of advance format technology which helps a manufacturer create more reliable drives with more capacity taking up less space. The SecurePark technology used by this drive keeps the recording heads off the platter surface when not needed to better ensure that the recording head never touches the disk surface. This should result in less head wear during the operating life of the unit, and also in improved non-operational shock tolerance. With an RPM of just 5400 and SATA 3 Gbps (not the common 6 Gbps) interface, one cannot expect too much performance out of this drive. The drive was able to give average transfer speeds of 92.2 MBps which is lower than Hitachi Deskstar 7K4000 (7400 RPM and SATA 6 Gbps) reviewed in March 2013.
