2.5" SSDs

SATA III 6Gb/s SSD230S

Transcend's SATA III 6Gb/s SSD230S uses the latest 3D NAND technology that features vertical, stacked expansion of storage cells. By using high-quality flash memory and enhanced firmware algorithms, the SSD230S delivers greater performance and reliability.

3D expansion to break through limits

Unlike planar NAND memory, 3D NAND flash features memory cells stacked vertically in multiple layers. 3D NAND overcomes density limitations of 2D planar NAND, and delivers a higher level of performance and endurance.

Performance boost for everyday computing

Taking full advantage of the SATA III 6Gb/s interface and built-in SLC caching technology, Transcend's SSD230S achieves exceptional transfer speeds of up to 560MB/s read and 520MB/s write.

Guaranteed endurance and reliability

Transcend's SSD230S offers great Terabytes Written (TBW) values (up to 1,120 TB) indicating the total amount of data you can write into the drive over its lifetime.

RAID engine and LDPC coding

Detects and corrects transfer errors to prevent data corruption in TLC-based SSD products

Garbage Collection

Relocates existing data to release memory blocks

Wear-leveling

Distributes data evenly across memory cells to prolong SSD's lifespan

DevSleep

Intelligently shuts down SATA interface when not in use to prolong device's battery life

DDR3 DRAM cache

Stores a temporary copy of the most active data to shorten access times

A better choice than HDD

Solid-state drives dominate the market for PC upgrades because they are faster and lighter than hard disk drives. SSDs also feature less power, create less noise when in operation, and are more shock-resistant than traditional hard drives.

3 easy steps to upgrade your PC

Transcend's SSD230S measures just 6.8mm in height and features short access times, making it a perfect choice for upgrading desktops, laptops, and the latest gaming consoles in just 3 easy steps!

SSD Scope software

Transcend SSD Scope is advanced, user-friendly software that makes it easy to ensure your Transcend SSD remains healthy, and continues to run fast and error-free by determining the condition and optimizing the performance of your drive.
