Transcend Introduces 128GB High-Speed 2.5" SSD

2008/11/02
Transcend Information Inc. (Transcend®), the world's leading manufacturer of memory products, is proud to release its all-new 128GB high speed 2.5-inch Solid State Disk (SSD). SSDs are made of reliable NAND flash memory that contains no moving parts, and therefore are not susceptible to mechanical failure resulting from vibration, shock or heat. Featuring a powerful new controller, Transcend's MLC-equipped 128GB SSD far outpaces standard 2.5" hard drives, delivering exceptional sustained read/write speeds of up to 145MB / 92MB per second to guarantee fast throughput regardless of file size. With these high-speed transfer rates and virtually non-existent (0.2ms) latency, software applications and games open faster and run more smoothly, improving overall system responsiveness. Moreover, this SSD's industry-standard SATA-II interface and 2.5" form factor allow easy and straightforward user installation in most notebook computers and mainstream PCs just like regular hard drives.

Transcend's 128GB Solid State Disk's integrated ECC (Error Correction Code) ensures highly reliable data transfer and increases system integrity. Its built-in wear leveling technology also guarantees ultra-long storage lifespan and data-retention durability for prolonged use. Transcend's 2.5" Solid State Disks are available in capacities ranging from 8GB to 128GB in SATA-II and IDE versions, and are all backed by a two-year warranty along with the support of a global service network.
