Transcend 420s M.2 120GB M.2 2242 SSD SATA III TLC
3D expansion to break through limits Unlike the existing planar NAND
chips, 3D NAND flash is a type of flash memory in which the memory cells
are stacked vertically in multiple layers. 3D NAND is developed to break
through density limitations of the 2D planar NAND, and thus can deliver a
greater level of performance and endurance.
Perfect for your Ultrabook
Compliant with M.2 form factors Type 2242 and 2280, Transcend's 3D
NAND M.2 SSDs are perfect for use in Ultrabooks and lightweight notebooks.
Measured at just 42mm in length, the M.2 SSD 420S makes for an easy
upgrade to your computer, taking up little space while giving it a much
needed energy boost.
Superior transfer speeds
Featuring the M.2 standard (42mm), the next generation SATA III
6Gb/s interface and a powerful controller, Transcend's M.2 SSD 420S
reaches incredible read and write speeds of up to 500MB/s and 430MB/s.
When used as a cache, the M.2 SSD 420S provides 1.5 times faster boot time
than conventional hard drives.
High IOPS to speed up loading times
Dedicated to maximizing high-performance computing, the M.2 SSD 420S
features 4k random file read and write speeds up to 75,000 IOPS that
deliver incredibly short loading times and almost instant response for
heavy graphics and multimedia applications.
Store more in less space
The M.2 form factor enables expansion and integration of functions
onto a single form factor module solution. M.2 SSDs include a smaller form
factor but with larger capacities than that of mSATA and half-slim SSDs.
SSD Scope software
Transcend SSD Scope is advanced, user-friendly software that makes
it easy to ensure your Transcend SSD remains healthy, and continues to run
fast and error-free by determining the condition and optimizing the
performance of your drive.
