Transcend Solid State Drives
Transcend solid state drives are a compact and fast data storage solution for laptops, desktops and other computer systems. They come in configurations to fit most devices and capacities that handle almost any information storage needed. Staples carries a variety of Transcend products, making it simple to find a drive to meet any home or business need.
Transcend Solid State Drives Offer High-speed Data Access Solid state drives (SSDs) use computer memory instead of spinning magnetic platters to store data, a design that eliminates moving parts and reduces the time spent searching for stored information. Transcend drives read and write up to 550 megabytes of data per second and carry out up to 80,000 input/output operations per second.
Choose a Transcend Solid State Drive With capacities between 16MB and 1TB, these products can handle the storage needs of almost any user. Tiny mSATA and M.2 drives are ideal for lightweight computing devices such as ultrabooks or tablet PCs, while models with SATA controllers fit the standard 2.5-inch drive bays found in personal computers, laptops and servers. External SSDs with USB 3.0 data ports are a convenient way to transfer files between devices or backup critical data.
Transcend SSDs also offer exceptional reliability. TRIM and NCQ support built into drive controllers extends the durability of the device's storage media, and S.M.A.R.T. detects potential hardware failures, minimizing the risk of data losses. Their chip-based design also makes SSDs impact and vibration resistant.
How Do SSDs Compare to Hard Disks? Both SSDs and hard drives are reliable data storage options with a mean time between failure of 1.5 million hours or more. The lack of mechanical components makes solid state drives much faster and more energy efficient than hard drives, but they do cost more per gigabyte of storage. The biggest hard drives hold more data than the largest SSDs.
How Do You Manage Transcend Solid State Drives? Transcend offers free software for many of their drives that you can use to monitor drive performance, update firmware to the latest revision or diagnose drive issues. The software also simplifies transferring data from existing drives to new storage media and can securely erase stored information. Select products work with Transcend Elite, software that helps automate system backups, encrypts drive data for added security and transfers files between Transcend devices and cloud storage solutions such as Dropbox or Google Drive.
How Much Storage Do You Need? Everyone has different storage needs. A small 128 to 256GB Transcend SSD can easily store a casual user's data files, while a gamer or power user may require a larger 500GB to 1TB drive to hold their information. Pairing a smaller solid state drive with a high-capacity hard disk is an excellent way to handle a big media file collection. Using a Transcend SSD for the operating system and applications speeds up system performance, while the larger but slower hard drive offers plenty of space for bulky image, video or audio data files.
SSDs combine exceptional performance and reliability, making them an attractive data storage option for personal and business computers. Find a Transcend solid state drive to meet your storage needs when you browse the array of computer accessories available at Staples.
