The Ignite is backed by a three-year warranty. In addition, it comes with features such as end-to-end data protection, advanced wear-leveling, smartECC and Smart Refresh, designed with a standard 2.5 inch form factor. The Ignite SSD will be available for purchase later this month at online and in-store retailers such as Fry’s, Amazon and Newegg.
