Transcend Launches 1TB SATA and Portable Solid State Drives
Transcend Information today introduced the SSD370, the SATA III 6Gb/s 2.5" solid state drive (SSD) featuring an 1TB storage capacity and read and write speeds of up to 570MB and 470MB per second.
Taking advantage of the next-generation SATA III 6Gb/s interface, DDR3 DRAM cache, and a powerful Transcend TS6500 controller, the SSD370 is also comprised of MLC NAND Flash chips to transfer speeds of up to 570MB/s read and 470MB/s write.
The SSD370 can also help users save power thanks to the full support of SATA Device Sleep Mode (DevSleep). Portable computer users often make use of low power states such as standby mode to avoid having to wait for the operating system to boot back up. However, this comes at the expense of battery life. DevSleep allows compatible mobile devices to completely power off the SATA interface when not in use while maintaining a remarkable response time of less than 20ms, offering instant-on capabilities akin to a portable device.
Transcend's SSD370 also come equipped with practical features such as Advanced Power Shield mechanism, Intelligent Block Management, Wear Leveling, and TRIM and NCQ. It also supports enhanced S.M.A.R.T. commands and offers an excellent shock resistance.
Transcend's Solid State Drives come with SSD Scope - a free software that helps maintain a healthy SSD by keeping it up-to-date. The features include: Drive Information, S.M.A.R.T. Status, Diagnostic Scan, Secure Erase, Firmware Update, TRIM Enabling, Health Indication, and System Clone.
Transcend's SATA III 6Gb/s SSD370 SSD is available in 32GB ($49), 64GB ($59), 128GB ($99), 256GB ($169), 512GB ($319) and 1TB ($679) capacities. All models are backed by Transcend's Three-year Warranty.
Transcend has also introduced its latest USB 3.0 portable solid state drive, the ESD400, which features storage capacities up to 1TB, transfer speeds up to 410MB/s read and 380MB/s write.
