Affordable Upgrade for Everyone
A high-quality product for the budget-minded among us, the S60 is positioned as one of the most cost-effective SSD models. With its advanced SATA III 6Gb/s interface and an affordable price, you can now easily upgrade your old computer without spending a fortune.
Still wasting precious time while booting your computer or loading applications? Then it’s time to get rid of your old hard drive and switch to an SSD. Powered by SATA III 6GB/s interface, the S60 is able to boot your computer or launch applications within seconds.
Upgrading your computer is a piece of cake – you don’t need to be a techie to do it. Just follow these three easy steps:
Step 1. Backup your data to another storage device
Step 2. Remove the old HDD from your computer
Step 3. Insert the S60 in your computer.
Durability and Performance
Equipped with an original controller and selected NAND flash, the S60 can not only guarantee stability and durability. It also delivers outstanding performance which enables 10-second quick boot-ups, shorter application load times and faster data transmission speed. Whether you are web surfing, enjoying a good movie, or have to handle paperwork, the S60 will bring you a smooth, lag-free experience.
Bad Block Management for Higher Reliability
Even new disks can contain one or more bad blocks which may cause irreparable damage to your system. But have no fear! To prevent flash memory corruption, the S60 is built with bad block management technology. Bad blocks are continually monitored and replaced to keep your system in good condition and to improve reliability and endurance of the SSD. Because we do care about your data.
Light and S.M.A.R.T.
The S60 is one of the lightest and thinnest SSDs of its kind yet it is shock- and vibration-proof, because it contains no moving parts. Equipped with a S.M.A.R.T. monitoring system and ECC (error correction code) technology, it also promises higher data transmission safety.

Silicon Power SSD Slim S60 Reviews
While in the hunt for a small, inexpensive, consumer SSDs, we’ve run across a few models that have worked well. Initially, we employed several of the Mushkin ECO2 60GB SSDs, as they were inexpensive, sized right, and, though they never got dreamy reviews, seemed pretty solid. In the end, however, these drives have appeared to be phased out by the manufacturer, and we have admittedly had about a 20% failure rate over a few years. So, in an effort to find a suitable replacement to the now defunct Mushkin ECO2s, we stumbled upon the Silicon Power line of SSDs. Like many SSD manufacturers, Silicon Power offers a number of SSD model ranges, and it can be sometimes hard to discern significant differences among the models. From entry-level consumer “laptop upgrade” S55 and S60 models, to “prosumer” gaming models like the S85 with a five-year warranty, as well as the TLC 3D NAND-based A55 model, Silicon Power has an offering for most applications. This ultimately led us to the Silicon Power S60. The S60 is a “consumer plus grade” SSD, which means it’s designed to fit the inexpensive laptop upgrade niche. And while it’s quite suitable for such duties, we like the fact that it’s available in a 60GB model – perfect for operating system drives. Best yet, it can be regularly found for under $35 per drive, making it a relative bargain given it’s small capacity. Consumer reviews of the S60 drive are solid as well, with nearly 200 reviews averaging 4.3 stars on Amazon at the time of this post. Since, we run a double-digit number of these drives, I always keep a couple cold spares on hand, but it’s still nice to know I can have a replacement at my door in two days if necessary (shameless Amazon Prime plug). – Teknophiles
Alla ricerca di un ssd da 120GB economico ci siamo imbattuti nella nuova serie di SSD slim S60 prodotta dalla Silicon Power.Questi prodotti hanno un prezzo inferiore rispetto alla media , ma godono comunque di ottime caratteristiche.
La serie S60 e ovviamente sata 3 ed e in grado di promettere una lettura sequenziale di 550MB/s e 500MB/s in scrittura sequenziale.Il controller flash NAND SandForce SF-2281 trovato nella Slim S60 e tutt’altro che nuovo , ma offre ancora una buona gamma di funzioni come NCQ (Native Command Queuing), RAISE (correzione degli errori) DuraClass (avanzato wear leveling e algoritmi di controllo) e la tecnologia DuraWrite (fino a 20 volte piu resistente rispetto ad altri controller), insieme con TRIM e Garbage Collection intelligente. – Guide Informatica
