Why should a high-performance laptop or PC be slower than your tablet or smart phone? It shouldn't. The FAST Factor features of the Momentus XT solid state hybrid drive (SSHD) give you the instant-on response of solid state memory and the extremely large capacity of a hard drive. You get both the kick and the capacity that lets you consume, create and store at amazing speeds.
In the past, the term "instant-on" could not be applied to a standard laptop or PC. That kind of speed was available only in systems few could afford or in tablet devices made for online browsing, not content creation. By contrast, the Momentus XT drive with FAST Factor technology is an affordable, well-designed SSHD that delivers the speed of solid state memory with the storage benefits of a hard disk drive (HDD). It has more data integrity and retention techniques than solid state drives (SSDs) or other combination solutions. Using flash-assisted storage technology (FAST) and Adaptive Memory technology, you get solid state performance, expansive capacity and exceptional reliability in an all-in-one device.
The Momentus XT drive is the only all-in-one device that can deliver affordable SSD performance without compromising battery life, storage requirements, data integrity, integration complexity, or your pocketbook.
Momentus XT drives are known for incredibly fast boot-up times, and now they are even better with FAST Factor boot technology. This system boot-up technique can reduce your boot time to mere seconds for a fast cold-boot start. It can cut your system start-up time by up to 65% over a traditional HDD. FAST Factor boot technology will deliver the fastest boot possible, whether you boot your system once a day or once a week. Your OS boot-up files are always there, ready to work.
Momentus XT solid state hybrid drives also implement a management feature that provides seamless integration between hardware, firmware and high-speed NAND flash while maintaining data integrity under all conditions--any system, any OS and with any driver.
Adaptive Memory technology delivers SSD-like response from the applications and files you use the most. It lets the Momentus XT drive selectively tackle frequently used data, copy it to the flash, track its relevancy and keep the flash current. You get the instant response experience you need to perform at your best.
