Improved reliability, performance and long-life durability
Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced the addition of the new SLC-based 2.5” PSD520 solid state drive (SSD) to its PATA/IDE SSD line-up.
The PSD520 uses a single level cell(SLC) flash, and provides older systems with dramatically improved reliability and performance, and also excellent durability.
Transcend’s PSD520 is built using high quality SLC flash chips, supporting ten times the write endurance over multi-level cell (MLC) technology. Additionally, SLC-based flash generates fewer errors per write cycle, allowing it to bypass the robust error correction required for MLC and access disk data at much greater speeds. As a result, the PSD520 offers reduced start-up time, enhanced system responsiveness, and impressive data transfer rates up to 119MB/s read and 102MB/s write.
