Transcend Launches the ESD400 Portable Solid State Drive

Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a leading manufacturer of storage and multimedia products, today introduced the ESD400, its latest SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Portable Solid State Drive (SSD). Featuring outstanding high capacities of up to 1 TB, incredible transfer speeds of up to 410 MB/s read and 380 MB/s write, and an extra durable and compact design, ESD400 SSDs are best suited for consumers demanding massive storage space and high-speed data transfer.

Higher Capacities and Blazing-Fast Speeds
Featuring vast storage capacities ranging from 128 GB to 1 TB, the ESD400 allows you to save your high-resolution multimedia files and applications, photos, documents and almost everything you need in it. The ESD400 USB 3.0 Portable SSD is equipped with a next-generation SuperSpeed USB 3.0 connection interface that provides 10 times the bandwidth of USB 2.0.

With UASP support, the ESD400 can deliver significantly faster performance. When connected to a USB 3.0 port, the ESD400 boasts blazing fast read and write speeds of up to 410 MB and 380 MB per second, fast enough to transfer a full 4.7 GB DVD movie in just 13 seconds. With USB 2.0 backwards compatibility, the ESD400 ensures that users will be able to move files between computers that do not support SuperSpeed USB 3.0.

Extra Durable and Compact Design
Due to the absence of moving parts, Transcend's flash-equipped ESD400 runs cool and silent, and can withstand 5 times greater shock or vibration than conventional portable hard disk drives. Taking full advantage of solid-state storage technology, the ESD400 not only offers superior durability and reliability, but is also much smaller and lighter. Measuring just 92 x 62 x 10.5 mm and weighing a mere 56g, the playing card-sized ESD400 fits neatly in your pocket. Perfect for everyday portability, this compact SSD includes a handy travel pouch to protect the driver's sleek outer case against scratches during transport.

Exclusive Transcend Elite Data Management Software
For added value, the ESD400 includes a free download of the exclusive Transcend Elite data management tool that helps you manage data and increase productivity. With this convenient software, users can easily perform incremental backups, secure confidential information and much more. Moreover, the ESD400's One Touch auto-backup button enables you to instantly backup and synchronize data with your notebook or desktop PC, ensuring that your important files are safely stored in a secondary backup location.

Transcend's ESD400 Portable SSDs are available in 128 GB ($109), 256 GB ($189), 512 GB ($349) and 1 TB ($699) capacities, and all models carry Transcend's three-year limited warranty.

Hmm... Probably in around 10 or more years when HDD will be finally extinct and take their place in the museum next to the floppy drives, ZIP drives CD/DVD drives.... All of this ultra slow, jurassic tech needs to go into Oblivion as soon as possible really...
