Revolutionize overall system responsiveness with the SSD 720!

The SSD720 is the newest next generation SSD in Transcends product line.  It combines the latest SATA III 6Gb/s specification with a powerful SandForce controller and offers transfer speeds of up to 560MB/s read and 540MB/s write. Designed with multitasking power users in mind, the productivity-enhancing SSD720 will revolutionize system boot up time, application launch speed, and overall system responsiveness. 

To meet size limitations for many of today’s Ultrabooks, Netbooks and Notebooks, the SSD720 is a just mere 7mm in thickness.  Although smaller than most SSD’s the SSD720 uses the same SATA connector used on the 2.5” Hard Disk Drives and is backwards compatible with the SATA I and SATA II.

Transcend’s SSD720, a next generation SATA III 6Gb/s solid state drive (SSD), has been declared as  “Must Have” product by independent Review KitGuru.  Competing against a huge selection of leading drives from market competitors, the reviewer commended Transcend`s SATA III 6Gb/s SSD720 for its fast transfer performance:  “It performs better than many of the competing SandForce 2281 powered drives”  thanks to the use of industry-leading toggle-mode MLC NAND flash chips, and then added, “IOPS performance is also well above average, meaning that it can be used for more serious workstation/server duties while maintaining a high level of sustainable throughput.”

The SSD720 was especially praised in the ATTO Disk Benchmark performance measurement section of the review: ”Performance with ATTO is class leading – measuring 559 MB/s read and 526 MB/s write,” outperforming all other same-class drives tested. (ATTO is used to measure storage systems performance with various transfer sizes and test lengths for reads and writes). “We have no hesitation in recommending this drive as a versatile, fast and competitively priced choice for a high performance boot drive,” the reviewer from KitGuru concluded, awarding it a well-deserved “Must Have Award”.

SSD’s contain no moving parts, are shock and vibration resistant, offer low power consumption and cool, silent operation that can help increase the efficiency and battery run-time of the latest thin and light form factor devices. Completing file operations at least three times faster and providing ultra-low access latencies by avoiding platter “seek time”, the SSD720 is the ideal drop-in replacement for standard rotating hard drives.
