Imagine your notebook was faster, lighter, more reliable, and longer lasting. To overcome the limits of portable computing, Transcend’s SSD340 SATA III SSD boasts incredibly fast transfer speeds, a compact and lightweight design, shock and vibration resistance, and DevSleep support. That means you can enjoy a seamless, lag-free computing experience even when using your notebook on an extended journey.

Performance Upgrade

Transcend's SSD340 is built using high-quality synchronous multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash memory for enduring performance and features the next-generation SATA III 6Gb/s interface, DDR3 DRAM cache, and a powerful controller. As a result, the SSD340 makes everyday computing tasks, such as booting up your computer, launching applications, and transferring data, quicker than ever before.

In order to allow straightforward installation in notebook computers, mainstream PCs, and today’s advanced Ultrabooks, the SSD340 features the industry-standard 2.5" form factor. Yet, it measures just 7mm in height and only weighs a mere 52g. Moreover, the SSD340 offers cool, silent operation and excellent resistance to shock and vibration, further proving that it’s the ultimate upgrade to your standard rotating hard drive.


Low Power, Fast Response

The SSD340 maximizes notebook battery life when not in use thanks to full support of SATA Device Sleep Mode (DevSleep). DevSleep ultra low power state conserves more battery power than current power saving features such as standby mode by shutting down the SATA interface completely. And with a remarkable response time of less than 20 milliseconds, you can start working on your computer again almost instantly.


Built-In Reliability

To keep your Transcend SSD running fast, clean, and error-free, the advanced SSD Scope software application is available to download and work with the SSD340. SSD Scope allows you to monitor SSD340 health status with S.M.A.R.T. technology and enable the TRIM command in the operating system to help maintain optimum write speeds, all from a single user-friendly tool

For operating systems that do not support the TRIM command, the SSD340 offers an aggressive garbage collection and recycling system. To further increase the lifespan of the SSD340, built-in wear-leveling and Error Correction Code (ECC) ensure continued reliable data transfer. SSD Scope also includes a convenient System Clone utility to help make upgrading your existing computer to the performance boost of an SSD340 quick and easy.
