Performance Upgrade\nTranscendâ€™s SSD720 is a next generation SATA III 6Gb/s solid state drive (SSD) that doubles the maximum data transfer rate of the previous Serial ATA II 3Gb/s interface and delivers significantly improved performance over standard rotating hard drives. Combining this latest SATA III 6Gb/s specification with a powerful SandForce controller, the SSD720 offers incredible transfer speeds of up to 550MB/s read and 500MB/s write, taking a mere 15 seconds to transfer a 4.7GB DVD. Consequently, upgrading your computer with an SSD720 will revolutionize system boot up time, application launch speed, and overall system responsiveness.\n\nHigh-End Applications\nTo meet the size limitations of the latest thin and light form factor devices, the SSD720 boasts a super slim thickness of just 7mm, compared with 9.5mm of most SSDs currently available. Although smaller in size, the 7mm SSD720 uses the same SATA connector used on a 2.5â€ hard disk drive (HDD) and is backwards compatible with SATA II/I (3Gbps/1.5Gbps) interface for excellent multi-platform compatibility.\n\n\nBuilt with reliable NAND flash memory that contains no moving parts, the SSD720 not only provides resistance from shock and vibration, but also offers low power consumption and cool, silent operation. These features come together to help increase the efficiency and battery runtime of portable devices, making the SSD720 perfect for deployment in todayâ€™s modern Ultrabooks, netbooks, and notebooks.\n\n\nSupport for Native Command Queuing (NCQ) adds to the performance and efficiency features of the SSD720 by optimizing the order in which received read and write commands are executed. Designed with multitasking power users in mind, the productivity-enhancing SSD720 is the ideal solution for demanding system applications, such as specialized multimedia computing and high-end gaming.\n\nBuilt-In Reliability\nFor Windows 7 users, the SSD720 fully supports the TRIM command to automatically remove deleted data permanently, helping to maintain optimum write speeds and prevent long-term SSD wear. For operating systems that do not support the TRIM command, the SSD720 utilizes an aggressive garbage collection algorithm and intelligent â€œrecyclingâ€ system for advanced free space management. The lifespan of the SSD is further increased with built-in wear-leveling and Error Correction Code (ECC) that ensure continued reliable data transfer.\n\nUsed to analyze the health status of the SSD720 and detect possible hard drive failures before they occur, S.M.A.R.T. monitors an SSD-specific set of attributes, such as temperature and erase count, alerting you to any action required. The 7mm SSD720 is extensively tested to operate effectively in a wide-range of temperatures, while sophisticated SSD optimizing tools work together to extend the life of the drive.
