    Transcend Information, Inc, a global leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced a radical upgrade of its 2.5" solid state drives (SSD). The new SSDs boast transfer speeds reaching 260 MB/s and storage capacities up to 512 GB, offering performance-minded enthusiasts a perfect combination of speed, high-capacity storage and long-term reliability.

    To boost overall performance, Transcend’s new 2.5-inch SATA SSDs feature an upgraded controller chip that supports a maximum sequential transfer speed of 260 MB/s read and 200 MB/s write. This dramatically improved performance translates into significantly faster system boot up and application launch speed, while offering the lag-free responsiveness and stability necessary for storage-intensive computing and high-end gaming systems.

    For maximum compatibility with the latest versions of Windows and Linux, the new 2.5" SATA SSDs fully support the TRIM command, which is essential to maintain optimum write speeds, and also reduces long-term SSD wear. Featuring storage capacity up to 512GB, currently the highest in the industry, Transcend’s upgraded SSDs are large enough to store operating systems, applications and more.

    Although the 2.5" form factor is commonly associated with notebook storage, Transcend’s 2.5" SSDs can also be installed in desktop computers to improve performance and reliability. To provide desktop users an easy SSD upgrade solution that does not require replacing their existing hardware, Transcend now offers an SSD Desktop Upgrade Kit. The kit includes everything a desktop user needs to install and start using a new SSD in just minutes: a 32GB 2.5-inch SATA interface SSD, a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch mounting bracket, SATA data and power cables and Acronis True Image HD disk cloning software.

    All Transcend 2.5” Solid State Drives are backed by a two-year warranty and incorporate innovative tamper-resistant features to guarantee authenticity, including an anti-counterfeit Transcend logo security hologram and tamper-evident seals. Now available in 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, 256GB and 512GB capacities, Transcend’s new SATA SSDs are best for use with industrial computers, netbooks, notebooks and high-end gaming PCs.

    2 year warranty. Tells it all, how much confidence they have in their product. "Old" hard drives mostly have 5 years...

    To be honest, most of "old" HDDs have 3 yrs guarantee. Exception are some enterprise-grade HDDs, or for example WD Black series that come with 5-yrs guarantee.

    Although, I get the point, most of SSDs lately have been offered with at least 3-yrs guarantee, so this is kind of suspicious/lame... :shadedshu

    It unnerves me though that someone like Transcend would make a move like this...

    Kind of weird but I would hope an SSD lasts more than 2 years.

    At least they could make this some kind of value product, but nooo-nooo. Those political bastards...
