As a result, the ESD200 is especially admired for its outstanding real-world data transfer speeds of up to 260MB/s read and 225MB/s write: “These speeds blow rival external drives out of the water,” said the reviewer at PC Format magazine. The ideal drive for mobile use, the reviewers found the ESD200 portable SSD to be particularly handy when it comes to transferring large or numerous files on a regular basis.

About the size of a credit card, Transcend’s ESD200 SSD is free of moving parts, to offer cool and silent operation, and can withstand excessive shock and vibration.
