- SATA III
Transcend SSD320 256GB SSD
SSDs such as the Transcend SSD320 make the migration from mechanicals disks a very easy experience. At 256GB, the Transcend SSD320 offers up a good amount of space for your OS, programs and quite a bit of data. The SSD320 is also built with reliability and performance in mind, using a proven combination of a Sandforce SF-2281 controller along with 25nm MLC NAND and SATA III interface. The SF-2281 allows the SSD320 to take advantage of TRIM and Durawrite technologies to keep speeds up over time, even as the disk fills.
The SSD320 is also no slouch in terms of performance, boasting linear read and write speeds of 560 and 530MBps respectively. The SSD320 uses the latest 7mm form factor for compatibility in the slimmest Ultrabooks, but also fits into 9mm spaces and includes a 3.5" adapter for desktop users. Transcend’s SSD Scope software allows for S.M.A.R.T. health monitoring, firmware updating and drive cloning to make migration from a mechanical drive a snap. Transcend backs the SSD320 with a three-year warranty.
Fast Performance for All Your Computing Needs

Superior to Any Hard Drive
Transcend’s SSD320 is significantly faster than any hard drive. With an enormous speed advantage, a 4.7GB DVD file can be transferred in only 20 seconds. The SSD 320 is twice as fast as a SATA II SSD and nearly three times as fast as a traditional hard drive. Increase your productivity with the SSD320 and enjoy more free time.
To meet the size requirements of new generation Ultrabooks, the SSD320 is 7mm thick, compared to 9.5mm thickness of other SSDs. Using an industry-standard 2.5” form factor and super-slim body, the SSD320 can be easily installed into any device.
High-Performance SandForce Controller
Based on a powerful SandForce controller and asynchronous MLC flash chips, Transcend’s SSD320 offers both impressive transfer rates and reliability.
Unlike traditional hard drives, SSDs are manufactured with reliable NAND flash memory. As SSDs contain no moving parts, they are more resilient to mechanical failures that can result from vibration, shock or heat.
Operation of an SSD is remarkably silent as there are no moving or rotating parts.
Traditional HDDs can considerably heat up during operation. An SSD, however, remains cool. Due to reduced heat development, annoying buzzing sounds originating from the SSD are rare.
SSDs are extremely energy efficient compared to a HDD. Save energy, money and the environment.
Extended Battery Life
When used in a portable device, the SSD's positive attributes like an increased battery life and light weight become particularly apparent.
