ZOTAC 480GB SSD unboxing review
By Alie Iwasaki 2020-02-27 1066 10
Open the express package, at first glance of this SSD gives people a different feeling, this Suotai 480GB SSD outer packaging using watercolor smear pattern, rich colors with black background, lively style makes people bright. This is very different from the moderate packaging style of other solid-state drive brands on the market, and it seems that Sotai has made a lot of efforts for this new product.
The back of the package is printed with the selling points and various bar codes of this SSD. In other words, this SSD is called ZOTAC 480GB SSD, and does not have a corresponding code name. This should be because Suotai has only launched this SSD, for the time being. I don't know if it will launch a solid state with RGB or M2 solid state in the future.
When you open the box, the plastic tray is loaded with a packing bag and a solid-state disk body, which contains three packets of Suotai solid-state drive vouchers in Chinese, including three packages of terms and conditions.
The front of the hard disk is printed with familiar ZOTAC LOGO, which is very light and thin and has a good texture as a whole. The hard disk as a whole does not use a screw, but uses plastic bumps to fit, reinforced shell protection, and can effectively defend against conventional vibrations and collisions, which is also a major advantage of solid-state drives over mechanical hard drives!
In order to find out, the author decided to disassemble the hard drive and take a look at the internal structure and materials. After all, the SSD solid-state drive products on the market can be said to be a mixture of fish and dragons, and SSD produced with all kinds of waste and garbage materials emerge in endlessly. I don't know how the conscience of the materials used in this Sotai SSD.
There is a seal printed with Sotai LOGO on the side of the hard disk to prevent players from dismantling the machine and damaging the hard disk. Here we don't care about it ~ take the blade to open the seal and open the shell. The PCB part of the hard disk is fixed with some protrusions and grooves, which is very firm and takes a lot of effort to disassemble.
As you can see, this Suotai 480GB SSD uses brand-new materials, the PCB is arranged neatly, the workmanship is very good, those shanzhai brand waste, dismantle machine materials and so on do not exist, after all, it is a regular big brand. Listen to Suotai customer service that their SSD are all brand-new materials, the repair rate is very low, it seems that what is said is true.
The hard disk master uses Lianyun MAS0902, to support 4-channel transmission, which does not cause bottlenecks in performance. Now the domestic master control is enough, and the chain has not been dropped in actual combat, so the performance is very good.
Let's install this hard disk and simply test it. The installation of the hard disk is more convenient. After plugging into the SATA line and booting, you can use it with simple partition settings. We use CrystalDiskMark software to simply test the performance of this solid state disk, test the 1GB file read and write, we can see that the sequential read and write speed reached 540MB/s and 465 MBbps respectively, the performance is good.
AS SSD Benchmark is also a commonly used solid state disk test software. Under the 1GB test file, the sequential read and write speed of Sotai 480GB SSD is still around 5000.The performance is good.
Finally, we use HD Tune Pro to test, we set the test file length to 5000MB, and perform the benchmark file test. Through the test, we can see that the sequential read speed of this Sotai SSD has reached 516146 KB/s, and the sequential write speed has reached the average level of 481011 KB/s, in SATA SSD. However, the SSD maintained a high stability throughout the test, and the reading and writing of nearly 50G files did not lose speed, which is enough for daily high-definition movies and game access.
Through unboxing and simple tests, we can see that Suotai's solid state drive is not only brand-new in materials, but also quite reliable in performance. It is enough for daily use, and the overall performance-to-price ratio is very high. If your laptop needs to be upgraded, or your desktop PC host needs to have a new game console, then this solid state drive will be very suitable.
