Transcend SSD370S Specs/Features:
The Transcend SSD370S has an excellent performance in terms of read and write speed. *Read speed is up to 500-550 MB/s and Write speed is up to 400-500 MB/s.
Running some test with Crystal Disk Mark via **SATA 3Gb/s connection
You got an excellent read speed of 263.5 MB/s (or in SATA 6Gb/s interface, approximately to 527 MB/s) and a write speed of 251.9 MB/s (or in SATA 6Gb/s interface, approximately to 503.8 MB/s).
HD Tune Pro via **SATA 3Gb/s connection
Another test is conducted on the HD Tune Pro benchmark, which is close to Crystal Disk Mark benchmark.
* Results may vary on machine/PC setup
** Test conducted on a motherboard that only supports SATA 3Gb/s interface, and I’m sorry about that. To be accurate or justify the SATA 6Gb/s calculation, we can simply multiply the 3Gb/s by 2(times two) to get the approximate data/results.
PRICE: $359.97 from the Amazon.com Online Store (as of November 30, 2015)
VERDICT: Great performance on read/write speed, compact size, and lightweight design brings a new life for PC/Notebook upgrade or portable SSD (if you have an enclosure). Plus the SSD370S ranges from 32GB to 1TB capacities that you can choose for your perfect data storage, multimedia or gaming needs. Rating: 8.5/10
