Transcend recently released a 128GB MLC solid state drive (SSD). The Transcend drives offer 145MB/s read and 92MB/s write performance (sustained), which guarantees faster file transfers whether you’re working with a 1GB or 100GB file size. While these speeds are a mile ahead of current standard 2.5″ hard drives and very good compared to other MLC SSDs, the Transcend SSDs do not match the performance of the leading SLC SSDs, such as Intel’s X25-E Extreme SSD.
Because of the new rapid transfer rates and insubstantial latency, games and other software applications open faster and run effortlessly, which improves overall system performance. This SSD uses the industry-standard SATA-II interface and a 2.5″ form factor, which permits easy and direct user installation into the majority of mainstream notebook computers and PCs like other regular hard drives.
Transcend’s 128GB SSDs integrate error correction code or ECC to raise system integrity and help ensure highly reliable data transfers. Like most other SSDs, the Transcend drives also feature a built-in wear leveling technology that helps to guarantee a long storage lifespan and data-retention durability for persistent use. You can purchase the Transcends 2.5″ solid state drives in capacities anywhere from 8GB to 128GB in SATA-II and IDE versions. All of these SSD hard drives come with global support and a two year warranty.
