  • The quick way to fast drive speed: An Accelerator Series SSD cache drive doesn't replace your hard drive — it just makes it faster. Installation takes just minutes. There are no configuration hassles and you'll start to experience the improvement immediately.
  • Upgrade your upgrade experience: You don't need to uninstall, reinstall, or move your existing hard drive. Just mount the Accelerator Series cache drive in an unused drive bay and attach a SATA cable and an internal power cable. Download and install the caching software, and you're ready to go.
  • An easy way to boost system performance up to 5x: Using an Accelerator Series™ solid-state cache drive can boost your system's read and write performance up to 5x compared to using a hard drive alone. Just add the cache drive to your system, download and install the intelligent caching software, and start enjoying faster boot times and quicker file access.
  • Break the bottleneck without breaking the bank: An Accelerator Series SSD is a great choice if you want to significantly boost your system's speed but you don't want to invest the time or cost of a complete system overhaul. Your PC will work just as it always has... just a lot quicker.
  • Accelerator Series SSD drives are available in 30GB, 45GB, and 60GB models: The Accelerator Series SSD is available in three densities enabling consumers to choose the drive that best meets their individual price/performance needs.
  • Corsair SSDs are 2.5" wide, the same size as notebook hard drives: The Accelerator Series SSD is an industry standard 2.5” wide and includes a 2.5” to 3.5” so it can be installed in any case assuming you have a free drive bay
