Transcend launches 2.5-inch SSD25D with DRAM Cache

New solid state drives offer 64MB of cache for increased performance

Transcend has announced the availability of its "ultra-speed" Solid State Drive with model number SSD25D. It is a 2.5 inch drive (laptop hard disk form factor) that operates over the SATA II interface. It has 64MB of inbuilt DRAM cache. SSDs are generally more durable, reliable, and have lower consumption than spinning magnetic hard drives.

A press release issued by Transcend claims sustained transfer speeds of up to 230MB/s read and 180MB/s write -- performance which is far higher than normal hard disk drives. With such fast transfer speeds and a latency of around one millisecond, a PC can be expected to be more responsive, boot-up faster, and launch software applications quicker.

The target market for such drives is high-end gaming systems, workstations, and performance laptops. Transcend claims the drive runs cool in operation, includes error-correction, and wear-levelling to obtain longer life. It is available in 60GB and 120GB capacities, priced at Rs. 18,000 (US$372) and Rs. 31,000 respectively, with a two year warranty.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
