choices in SSDs.
SATA III 6Gb/s SSD230
Transcend's SSD230 SATA III 6Gb/s SSD adopts the latest 3D NAND
technology that features vertical expansion of storage cells by
stacking one cell on top of the other. By using only high-quality
flash chips and enhanced firmware algorithms, the SSD230 is
guaranteed to deliver greater performance and reliability.
3D expansion to break through limits
Unlike the existing planar NAND chips, 3D NAND flash is a type of
flash memory in which the memory cells are stacked vertically in
multiple layers. 3D NAND is developed to break through density
limitations of the 2D planar NAND, and thus can deliver a greater
level of performance and endurance.
Transfer speed, transfer performance
Transcend's SSD230 is equipped with a DDR3 DRAM cache that provides
an incredible 4K random read and write performance of up to
340MB/s, making it the perfect choice as a boot disk for everyday
computing tasks and programs. Taking full advantage of the SATA III
6Gb/s interface and built in with SLC caching technology, the
SSD230 achieves exceptional transfer speeds of up to 560MB/s read
and 520MB/s write.
In addition to blazing-fast transfer speeds, the SSD230 is
engineered with a RAID engine and LDPC (Low-Density Parity Check)
coding, a powerful ECC algorithm, in order to keep your data
secure. Built-in wear-leveling technology ensures data integrity
during transmission, prolonging the lifespan of the drive.
Save power, save time
With full support of SATA Device Sleep Mode (DevSleep), the SSD230
can prolong notebook battery life by intelligently shutting down
the SATA interface when it is not in use. DevSleep features an
ultra-low power state to conserve battery power. With a remarkable
response time of less than 20 milliseconds, you can get back to
Take control with SSD Scope
To keep your Transcend SSD running fast and error-free, Transcend's
advanced SSD Scope software application is available for download
for use with the SSD230. Monitor your SSD's health status with
S.M.A.R.T. technology, enable the TRIM command for optimum write
speeds, keep your SSD's firmware up-to-date, and migrate data from
your original drive to a new SSD with just a few clicks.
The SSD230 features an industry-standard 2.5" form factor. Yet, it
measures just 6.8mm in height and weighs in at a mere 63g, making
it supremely well-suited for ultra-thin computing devices such as
Ultrabooks as well as mainstream PCs.
Rev Up Your Computer
Why let your trusty but weary PC slow you down when all it might need
is a boost?

Soar to New Heights of Performance
A global leader in storage solutions for nearly 40 years, Seagate
understands that read and write speeds play a huge role in the overall
performance of your computer.
To that point, BarraCuda SSD provides maximum sequential read and write
speeds up 560/540 MB/s.
