The 256 GB 2.5" SATA III SSD320 Solid State Internal Drive from Transcend is a next generation SATA III 6 Gb/s solid state drive (SSD). This technology doubles transfer speeds of previous Serial SATA II 3 Gb/s drives, and delivers improved reliability over standard rotating hard drives with no moving parts.
Combining the SATA III technology with a powerful Sandforce Driven controller, the SSD320 offers maximum transfer speeds of up to 560 MB/s read and 530 MB/s write and maximum 4k random file writes of 87,000 IOPS. This means that upgrading your computer with an SSD320 will enhance system boot up time, application launch speed and overall system responsiveness. It delivers improved performance and reliability to modern Ultrabooks, netbooks, notebooks and desktops making it an ideal upgrade solution for advanced multimedia computing and intense gaming.
Combined with a powerful SandForce controller and ultra-fast MLC flash chips, SATA III technology offers ultra-fast sequential read/write speeds of up to 560/530 MB/s.
It is fully compatible with devices and OS that support the SATA III 6.0 Gb/s, 3 Gb/s, and 1.5 Gb/s standard.
The SSD320 offers lightning-fast 4k random file reads up to 49,000 IOPS and 4k random file writes of up to 87,000 IOPS - ideal for running specialized multimedia applications and high-end gaming.
It provides lag-free multitasking and fast load-times.
Internal AES encryption protects data from unauthorized access.
The ultra-slim 0.28" (7mm) design and 2.5" (63.5mm) industry-standard form factor, allows SSD320 drives to be installed in notebook computers, PCs and ultrabooks.
Advanced SSD Scope software application works with SSD320 and keeps it running fast, clean and error-free with S.M.A.R.T. technology.
A built-in Error Correction Code (ECC) functionality and wear-leveling algorithms ensure reliable data transfer and increase the lifespan of SSD320, along with TRIM & Native Command Queuing (NCQ) command.
It offers garbage collection and intelligent recycling for advance free space management in OS that do not support TRIM command.
SSD320 is enclosed in a tough, lightweight metal case with no moving parts and hence it offers cool, silent, low-power operation with a resistance to shock and vibration.
SSD Scope* features "System Clone" that helps to make a copy of existing hard drive contents to your new SSD when you upgrade or back up the computer system. Note: *SSD Scope only works on Win 7/XP/Vista
