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.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
