Transcend SATA III SSD340
Fast Performance for All Your Computing Needs
Aimed at users looking to upgrade to the superior performance of solid-state technology at a competitive price, Transcend’s SSD340 with SATA III 6 GB/s technology makes sluggish computer boot-up and program launches a problem of the past. Boasting impressive transfer rates and excellent reliability, the SSD340 allows computer enthusiasts and gamers to take their system to the next level.
The SSD340 is ideal for users who use their computer primarily for everyday applications like internet browsing, basic computing, playing music or watching films. To fulfill the diverse needs to different users, the SSD340 is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux based systems. The 256 GB* SSD340 acts as the perfect system partition (for installing your operating system).
SSD technology offers other advantages over traditional spinning hard drives. Since there are no moving parts in the SSD340, it is highly shock and vibration resistant. Consequently, less power is consumed versus a traditional hard drive increasing the energy efficiency of your devices when used in concert with a SATA III SSD.
*1 GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. Displayed in the OS as 0.93 GB becauase 1,000,000,000 Bytes/1024/1024/1024= 0.93 GB. Some capacity (1-3%) is inter alia reserved for firmware and is not available for use as available space.
Rapid Data Transmission
Transcend’s SSD340 offers impressive transfer rates of up to 520 MB/s sequential read and up to 290 MB/s write speeds and up to 69,000 IOPS 4K random write speeds. Even large amounts of data can now be transferred in a matter of seconds.
Supports DevSleep Mode
The SSD340 maximizes notebook battery life when not in use thanks to full support of SATA Device Sleep Mode (DevSleep). DevSleep ultra low power state conserves more battery power than current power saving features such as standby mode by shutting down the SATA interface completely. And with a remarkable response time of less than 20 milliseconds, you can start working on your computer again almost instantly.
Improved Boot-Up and System Response Time
Transcend’s SSD720 optimizes your PC to reach top speeds and reduces system response time. Reboot your PC in just 24 seconds, reducing wait times by 60%. In comparison, to boot Windows 7 from a conventional hard drives takes about 82 seconds. When using the SSD720, files and programs, even memory-intensive applications like graphics programs, open in merely a few seconds.
Transcend's SSD340 is built using high-quality synchronous multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash memory for enduring performance and features the next-generation SATA III 6Gb/s interface, DDR3 DRAM cache, and a powerful controller. As a result, the SSD340 makes everyday computing tasks, such as booting up your computer, launching applications, and transferring data, quicker than ever before.
To meet the size requirements of new generation Ultrabooks, the SSD340 is 7 mm thick, compared to 9.5 mm thickness of other SSDs. Using an industry-standard 2.5” form factor and super-slim body, the SSD340 can be easily installed into any device.
