Operating Temperature and Power Consumption
The operating temperature range for the Intel SSDSC2BB120G401 DC S3500 Series 120GB SATA-6GBPS 20nm MLC 2.5inch Solid State Drive is the range of temperatures at which the drive can operate reliably. For this particular model, the operating temperature range is from 0°C to 70°C. This means that the drive can operate within this temperature range without compromising its performance or reliability. Operating the drive outside of this temperature range could potentially cause damage to the drive or result in data loss.
The power consumption of the Intel SSDSC2BB120G401 DC S3500 Series 120GB SATA-6GBPS 20nm MLC 2.5inch Solid State Drive refers to the amount of electrical power required for the drive to operate. This power consumption can vary depending on the workload and usage scenario. The typical power consumption for this SSD is 1.6 watts (W) when active and 0.6W when idle. This means that the drive consumes 1.6W of power when it is being actively used, such as when data is being read from or written to the drive. When the drive is idle, it consumes 0.6W of power. However, the actual power consumption can vary depending on factors such as the amount of data being transferred, the temperature, and the workload intensity. Lower power consumption is desirable as it can result in longer battery life for portable devices and reduce energy consumption costs for data centers.

About Refurbished Products
SATA 6GB/S SSD (Solid State Drive)
When high-end computer or server hardware comes into the picture, it is always a great idea to push the performance bar higher. Until users begin to use devices that are faster than conventional disks, then some benchmark grades would be significantly hampered. This is where SATA drives come into the picture.
SATA drives remain the most commonly used storage devices in mid-range PCs and desktop computers. They are compatible with several computer motherboards and operating systems. As such, they are one of the best storage solutions available. SATA drives are also typically used in popular gaming consoles.
They offer impressive storage capacity and excellent transmission speed. Now, the magic of SSDs is in the dazzling amount of data they send through SATA ports. Not only do they do that, but the solid-state technology allows them to respond to storage requirements efficiently. They do this with the fastest of speeds.
Their response time is incredible, allowing users across different levels to enjoy their use. The evolution of SSDs has seen them have much faster transfer rates. In addition to offering faster response times, these drives can almost saturate the entirety of a SATA port.
SATA 6GB/S Benefits
Users wonder about the need for or the benefits of adopting the SATA 6GB/S technology. This may result from hard drives current inability to fill the SATA 3.0 pipe at the 6GB/S speeds. However, SATA III ports now support bandwidths that are up to 6GBPs. There are several benefits to gain from using solid-state drives with a SATA 6GB S interface.
SATA 6GB S SSD Improved Performance
Users should expect improved performances and cache-efficient desktop applications. This interface would ensure that operations such as graphics design, video editing, and gaming become a lot faster. Compatible solid-state drives will reach faster sequential read-write speed rates. That way, users will see improved user experience and productivity, regardless of the activity they perform.
Compatibility SSD SATA 6.0 GB S
Another great advantage of these drives is that they work well with older components. They are backward compatible with SATA II and SATA I interfaces. Therefore, users do not need to change their old PCs or desktop computers before using these drives.
Improved Space Management
When compared to the PATA connectors, SATA drives are much smaller. This allows them to adapt to even the smallest PC cases, enabling better airflow among components. The SATA 6GBPS drives are suitable for connecting SSDs and optical drives to a motherboard. They do this without taking much space, thanks to the flat designs.
Bigger Cache Memories SATA 6.0 gb s
Renowned disk drive vendors are now equipping these drives with bigger and faster cache memories. This way, any application in use can predict what data a user is likely to need next. With this, they help to increase data transfer rates of SATA 6GBPS SSD with smart fetching and caching algorithms. The technology ensures no delay in retrieving information that has been pre-fetched and stored in the cache.
The Ultimate Performance Booster
Incremental investment in SATA 6GB/S drives can yield incredible improvement in performance. They have been amplified for higher capacities to be the mainstream high-performance devices.
