Transcend launches SandForce based mSATA SATA3 SSDs

Posted at 11 May 2012 21:23 CEST by Seán Byrne

Transcend, a well-known maker of storage and media player products has launched its MSA720 range of mSATA solid state drives (SSD), designed to fit the mSATA slot available in many Ultrabooks, tablet PCs and laptops. These feature the SandForce SF-2281 controller and high quality Toggle-mode MLC NAND flash chips.

This MSA720 range are capable of delivering up to 560MB/s read and 530MB/s write, along with a random 4K write of 91,000 IOPS, bringing it inline with upper-end 2.5″ SSDs. For security, they use hardware-based 256-bit AES encryption to automatically encrypt data in real-time without any loss of performance.

These SSDs are designed to work either as an OS drive or as a cache SSD in a dual-drive system to deliver fast boot-up and improve the performance of file searches, multi-tasking and frequently accessed data.

The MSA720 series come in a capacity choice of 64GB and 128GB and both are backed by a 3-year warranty.
