Transcend SSD230S 128GB: Hi-Yo Silver Away!December 16, 2017
Building a PC might, sometimes, be a little too much for some people, but for those with knowledge about it, it’s just like building your own Lego toy. But the actual building process should be the least of your worries. One should understand that to build a PC on your own, a plan should always be made. A perfectly planned PC will always be of great benefit to the user/owner.
Transcend’s SSD230S comes in a standard Transcend box that dons a red-white-black color scheme. The front of the box has the image of the SSD230S itself and a couple of its unique features printed on. The back of the box, as usual, holds all the specifications of the SSD230S.
Inside the box, you’ll find the SSD230S itself, warranty card, mounting screws and the quick installation guide that we suggest you to read if it’s your first time to build a PC.
The SSD230S comes in with a lighter gray color that touches the silver boundary which is just simply elegant to look at. Upfront is a large Transcend logo printed in a dark gray color, along with prints of the SSD model and another Transcend name and logo at the upper left part. Just like other Solid State Drives, the SSD230S is of the 2.5” form factor, so do check out the specifications of your case for a 2.5” drive tray or slot.
The final results are from the last run of our real world transfer tests. We transfer each of our test files five times with just seconds of interval from each transfer. This is done to stress the SSD’s read/write performance.
The 15GB folder with random files in it took just about 1 minute and 30 seconds. The 20GB folder which consists of random PDF files took just about 1 minute and 55 seconds, while the game folder that has a total of 42GB data in it took 2 minutes and 40 seconds.
