Introduction

Over the last couple of years or so we’ve looked at many Solid State Drives that feature various technologies in the attempt to boost speed and performance. Some have been successful, some have not. But there’s no mistaking the fact that SSDs are becoming increasingly popular with each passing month. Big improvements in controller technology and performance increases have also been accompanied by dropping prices, making these drives far more affordable to consumers who want to experience life in the fast lane on their computer.

We’ve looked at many SandForce drives in particular, and today’s SSD also contains the SF-2281 we’ve come to know and love. It’s a popular setup, as consumers get top notch speed without having to fork out tons of cash.

Today we have the Transcend SSD320 in a 256GB capacity for a closer look.That’s not a terribly flashy name for a speed demon of a drive, but we care less about the marketing and more about the results.

In a sea of similar products, can this Transcend SSD somehow stand out? Let’s dive in and find out.
