The MTS800 also features the DevSleep, which makes it possible for the drive to achieve an ultra-low power state, wherein it only consumes few milliwatts of power, and hence, gives devices longer sleep times.

And with a brilliantly swift response time of less than 20ms, you’ll be able to instantly work on your computer again and pick up where you left off.

Not to mention, the MTS800 is integrated with the Intel® Smart Response Technology that lets you configure your computer system with an SSD used as cache memory between the hard disk drive and system memory. The hard disk drive achieves its utmost storage potential while executing an SSD kind of system performance.What this technology does is monitor the programs and files that you frequently access then store them on the SSD. As a result, there’s a faster application launch and improved overall system responsiveness. The large capacity of the hard drive is then free to store all your other programs and files.

The MTS800 drive is entitled to a three-year limited warranty.
