Transcend Releases Fastest Half-Slim SSD

The new HSD740 half-slim SATA SSD comes in capacities of 32GB or 64GB

Transcend recently introduced the HSD740 half-slim SATA III 6Gb/s solid state drive (SSD). It is the company's latest and fastest half-slim SSD to date, and it features the latest SATA specification and delivers peak performance in industrial-grade standards.

The HSD740 half-slim SATA SSD measures in at just 54 x 39 x 4mm. In addition to the compact size, it features a high-bandwidth SATA III 6Gb/s interface that helps deliver fast transfer speeds reaching 510MB/s read and 185MB/s write.

The HSD740 is also designed to ensure reliable performance and long-term stability. It has been subjected to extensive quality testing in all stages of production and are equipped with a host of reliability features that include a built-in 50bit/1KB BCH hardware Error Correction Code (ECC) and wear-leveling algorithm for long-term reliable data transfer and full support of the S.M.A.R.T. Command to help detect possible hard drive failures before they occur.

It also supports SATA Device Sleep Mode (DevSleep), whereby the SSD allows itself to completely power off the SATA interface when not in use, while still maintaining a fast response time of less than 20ms.

The Transcend HSD740 half-slim SSD is already available in capacities of 32GB and 64GB.
