Transcend has joined Adtron in making available Flash-memory based hard drives (solid state disks – SSDs) for laptops.
Transcend is very pleased to announce its 32GB 2.5-inch IDE Solid State Drive (SSD), which is compatible with most mainstream PC and notebook computers. The 2.5-inch IDE interface SSD has a tough outer metal case, enormous capacities, high reliability, low power consumption and anti-shock features that make it ideal to replace Hard Disk Drives. Transcendâ€™s 2.5-inch IDE SSD series has a distinct advantage over standard 2.5â€ HDDs in that it is a solid-state memory with no moving parts, and therefore not susceptible to mechanical failure as a result of vibrations. It is now available in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB memory capacities.
Transcendâ€™s 2.5-inch IDE SSD is compact in size and its thickness is only 7.4mm, which makes it very easy to install in PCs and notebooks. In addition, the 2.5-inch IDE SSD has built-in ECC (Error Correction Code) functionality that ensures highly reliable data transfer and increases your systems energy efficiency.
Right now there are only three sizes and no word on price: 32GB (TS32GSSD25), 16GB (TS16GSSD25), and 8GB (TS8GSSD25).
