Category: C550w Series SSD
Description: 500GB - C550w Series Desktop SSD - 6Gbps - SATA III - TAA Compliant
Capacity: 500GB


The Axiom C550w is a high-performance SATA 6Gb/s SSD ideally suited for cost-effective, small form factor and low power client and industrial storage solutions for PCs, Ultrabooks, Tablet PCs, and other embedded applications. Featuring the Silicon Motion SM2258 controller and quality 3D TLC NAND, these SSDs are loaded with enhancements to promote a high performing and reliable computing environment. The 3D TLC SSD provides outstanding transfer speeds, Improved system startup, data access, application loading, and backup times are typically realized when upgrading systems from a traditional spinning disk hard drive to a 3D TLC SSD.
