SSD-Z is an information tool for Solid State Drives and other disk devices.
Using a database, it will show information about your SSD, such as the controller, processing tech, NAND type etc.
Other useful information related to disk devices are also shown, such as S.M.A.R.T. status and partition layout.
– Details of the controller and processing tech of NAND chips (for known devices). – Verify that TRIM is enabled for your system and SSDs. – S.M.A.R.T. status and full list of all the device’s available attributes. – List of all partitions. Including hidden, unmapped and boot partitions. – Benchmark IOPS, transfer speed and random access time (work in progress) – View the raw device identify data words.
Missing Features in Beta
– Some formatted SMART values may display incorrectly. Bytes written/read especially. – No individual details for each drive in a RAID array. – No SMART attributes for certain external USB drives. – Benchmark not fully implemented. – Support for NVMe devices is incomplete.
Are the details for your SSD not being shown, or are they incorrect, then please help out. Within SSD-Z, make sure the SSD in question is selected, then go to the Submit tab. Now fill in any comments you may have, and add your email if you wish. Then submit the data to the online database.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: SSD-Z does not seem to know my SSD. A: Please use the submission feature for your SSD. Q: Certain SMART attributes does not show a formatted or raw value. A: This is because the raw value is zero. Zeros are not shown by design. Q: Why is the benchmark feature so bad? A: This area of SSD-Z is incomplete, and is still work in progress.
