In our last Acer review, we presented the SA100 SSD, which is using the SATA interface. In this review we will cover the FA100 SSD, which is uses a faster, M.2 NVMe interface. It’s clear that this product is designed for the more demanding users, so it’s also interesting for gamers and computer enthusiasts.
Today’s review we will see that the 1TB version of the Acer FA100 SSD has to offer. Let’s not make this introduction any longer and move to the product features and later focus on the most important, performance.
THE SPEED TO SUCCEED, WIN AT WORK OR PLAY
Built from original high-quality 3D NAND wafers, Acer’s FA100 M.2 SSD has become the winner in the marketplace. Making use of its sequential read-speed up to 3300 MB/s and sequential write-speeds up to 2700 MB/s, the FA100 M.2 SSD handles high workloads efficiently.
SAFEGUARDING YOUR DATA, 4K LDPC HIGH-ORDER ERROR CORRECTION
FA100 M.2 SSD supports ECC error correction technology and S.M.A.R.T. function, based on 4K LDPC which enables stronger error correction capabilities and improved secure data storage. This effectively reduces data errors that may occur during SSD read and write, avoiding bad blocks for better performance and more reliability.
LESS LATENCY BY DESIGN, BETTER PERFORMANCE
FA100 M.2 SSD supports HMB function which enables the underlying storage to make use of a portion of host memory effectively reducing SSD latency by simulating SLC cache. More optimizations improve read and write performance and the drive even supports TRIM instructions to significantly reduce write amplification and effectively extend SSD life. Each SSD comes bundled with Acronis True-Image backup software.
TRIED AND TESTED, TECHNICAL EXPERTISE
FA100 M.2 SSD uses only high-quality original wafers. From design to material selection, from production to quality control, the unit undergoes multiple tests and rigorous evaluations to ensure higher readability and excellent performance overall.
ULTRA-LOW POWER CONSUMPTION, IDEAL CHOICE FOR LAPTOP AND DESKTOP STORAGE EXPANSION
FA100 M.2 SSD adopts a single-sided board design, lightweight and thin for easy installation. It supports multiple technologies such as modern standby and ultra-low power consumption. The maximum power consumption of the 2 TB version is only 3.96 Watts. After installation, it can effectively control the power consumption of your system and extend its battery life.
