Convergent Design 1TB SSD Media for Odyssey7Q+ (7, 7Q).
If you are using the Convergent Design Odyssey 7, Odyssey7Q, or Odyssey 7Q+; then you’ll need a Convergent Design SSD as they are manufactured to reject third party SSDs. This 2.5" Server-Grade SSD uses a standard eSata 2.0 interface, but Convergent Design also makes a USB3.0 Adapter that will do the job.
The CD-SSD-1TB is a server-grade drive containing a power protection circuit. Each drive is quality-checked by Convergent Design to ensure: rapid wake-up times, sustained read/write speeds, power-loss protection, fast read speeds, and low power draw.

Convergent Design SSDs have (continuous) write speeds of up to 475MB/Sec; they can be read at up to 520MB/Sec. Write speeds are also consistent. Unlike other drives that can see a significant drop-off in speed as they reach capacity, the CD-SSDs maintain their speeds until capacity is reached. Moreover, this speed is maintained without slowing for the lifespan of the product.
Speaking of lifespan, conservative estimates put it at 3K record/format cycles with a more typical result being 6K r/f cycles. Once the drive has reached end-of-life, it becomes read-only instead of inoperable.
The CD-SSD-1TB is manufactured in the USA and comes with a 3-Year Warranty.
