  • 17 July, 2009 13:29

<p>Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend ), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, is proud to announce the release of its latest ultra-speed Solid State Drive, a 2.5" SATA II SSD equipped with 64MB of built-in DRAM cache. This new drive, the SSD25D, offers Transcend's industry-proven SSD durability, power savings and reliability, while at the same time delivers outstanding transfer rates for those who demand the ultimate in data storage performance.</p>
<p>Thanks to its advanced solid-state technology, Transcend's SSD25D far outperforms standard 2.5" hard drives, delivering extraordinary sustained transfer speeds of up to 230MB/s read and 180MB/s write to guarantee blazing fast throughput, regardless of file size or type. With these extremely fast transfers and virtually non-existent (around one millisecond) latency, a computer equipped with a Transcend SSD25D is more responsive, boots-up faster, and launches software applications in a fraction of the time required with a standard hard drive. The increased speed potential gained from using a ultra-speed DRAM cache makes the SSD25D an ideal upgrade for high-end gaming systems and workstations, providing a more enjoyable, lag-free computing experience-especially when used with the upcoming Windows 7 operating system.</p>
<p>Built with reliable NAND flash memory that contains no moving parts, the SSD25D is highly rugged, remains cool and quiet while in operation, and is practically immune to mechanical failure caused by excess vibration, shock or heat. In addition, the SSD25D uses integrated ECC (Error Correction Code) to ensure accurate data transfer, and also features built-in wear leveling technology for consistent long-life operation that gives peace of mind to users who heavily rely on the data stored in their computers.</p>
<p>Transcend's new DRAM cache-equipped SSD25D features an industry-standard 3.0Gb/s SATA II interface and 2.5" form factor to allow easy and straightforward user installation in most notebook and desktop computers, just like a conventional hard drive. Moreover, the SSD25D's low power requirements and cool, silent operation greatly benefit notebook users with increased efficiency and longer battery runtime. Now available in 60GB and 120GB capacities, Transcend's SSD25D Solid State Drive is ideal for system builders, gamers, or anyone who is looking for an easy upgrade to supercharge their notebook or desktop PC with a dose of ultra-speed performance.</p>
