Zotac is a company we mainly know for their high performance graphics cards and line of ZBOX Mini PC’s. Recently they announced they were getting into the solid state drive market with their Premium Edition solid state drive line. Entering the solid state drive market for Zotac makes more sense than most companies. The solid state drive market can be very profitable, plus it gives them an option for storage with their ZBOX line of mini PCs. Zotac’s Premium solid state drives are powered by the quad-core Phison S10 controller and matched with MLC NAND. Zotac will be initially offering this drive in 120 GB, 240 GB, and 480 GB versions. Today we have the 240 GB version (ZTSSD-A5P-240G-PE) on the review block. Let’s see if Zotac has a winner in their Premium Edition solid state drives!
The Premium Edition solid state drive comes in a pretty plain retail box. On the front there is a sticker that lets us know the capacity, rated speeds, size, and MTBF. It also lets us know that Zotac backs these drives with a 3-year warranty.
Flipping the box over to the other side there is a little bit of information on the drive and a list of what the box contains.
Getting everything out of the box we have the Zotac Premium Edition solid state drive, a set of mounting screws, and a quick installation guide.
