The SSD370 features 1TB vast storage capacity and boasts the incredibly fast read and write speeds of up to 570 MB and 470 MB per second.
Best suited to address the huge capacity and high performance needs of the top-tier advanced devices, the SSD370 combines the high speeds and endurance of solid state drives, and additionally supports various useful features such as SATA DevSleep to optimize power management.
Exceptional 1 TB Capacity and 570 MB/s Transfer Speeds
Transcend’s SSD370 boasts the outstanding storage capacities ranging from 32 GB to 1 TB, meeting the consumers’ demands for massive memory space. Taking advantage of the next-generation SATA III 6 Gb/s interface, DDR3 DRAM cache, and a powerful Transcend TS6500 controller, the SSD370 is also comprised of high-quality MLC NAND Flash chips to achieve the exceptional transfer speeds of up to 570 MB/s read and 470 MB/s write, fast enough to easily handle everyday computing tasks as well as demanding multimedia applications.
The SSD370 can help users save power thanks to the full support of SATA Device Sleep Mode (DevSleep). Portable computer users often make use of low power states such as standby mode to avoid having to wait for the operating system to boot back up. However, this comes at the expense of battery life.
