Transcend MTS400 TS512GMTS400 M.2 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Measuring 22mm x 42mm x 3.5mm, the Transcend MTS400 M.2 SSD delivers unparalleled performance and features to your Ultrabooks, thin and light notebooks, and tablets. It’s engineered with a premium-quality MLC NAND Flash memory, powerful controller, and high-speed DDR3 DRAM cache, delivering 560MB/s maximum read and 160MB/s maximum write* through the SATA III-based M.2 interface. This means a seamless and smooth experience whether you are booting up system, launching apps, multitasking, or performing demanding multimedia applications. Performance is just part of the story. The SATA Device Sleep Mode (DevSleep) shuts down the SATA interface completely to conserve more power than traditional Standby Mode. The Power Shield mechanism helps prevent data loss during a sudden power outage. Other advanced features – such as TRIM and NCQ support, built-in ECC, wear leveling, and intelligent block management – all work together to ensure a reliable, consistent performance with minimized speed loss over time and use. And with low power consumption, silent operation, lightweight design, and vibration- and shock-resistance inherent in SSD technology, the Transcend MTS400 is a great choice for your system upgrade or a new build.
Spacing-Saving M.2 Form Factor
The MTS400 M.2 SSD’s space-saving M.2 type 2242 form factor (42mm × 22mm × 3.5mm) is designed to meet future market demands of ultra-thin and light mobile devices that require an SSD, including Ultrabooks, notebooks, tablets, portable gaming systems, and smartphones.
The MTS400 boasts the latest SATA III 6GB/s specification, a powerful Transcend TS6500 controller, a DDR3 DRAM cache, and is comprised of high-quality MLC NAND Flash chips. With maximum read speeds of up to 560MB/s read and maximum write speeds of 160MB/s, the MTS400 can easily handle everyday computing tasks as well as demanding multimedia applications. (Performance varies by capacity, user hardware, and system configuration.)
Portable computer users often make use of low power states such as standby to avoid having to wait for the operating system to boot the backup. However, this comes at the expense of the battery life. DevSleep allows compatible mobile devices to completely power off the SATA interface when not in use while maintaining a fast response time of less than 20ms, offering “instant-on” capabilities akin to a smartphone.
Intel Smart Response Technology (ISRT) Support
With ISRT, users can configure their computer system with an SSD used as cache memory between the hard disk drive and system memory. This provides the advantage of having a hard disk drive for the maximum storage capacity while delivering an SSD-like overall system performance experience.
Continued Reliable Performance
Despite their extra-small dimensions, the MTS series of M.2 SSDs comes equipped with advanced features such as TRIM and NCQ support, built-in ECC, wear leveling, and intelligent block management. The series supports enhanced S.M.A.R.T. commands, an advanced power shield mechanism, and excellent shock resistance, providing exceptional long-term reliability and data protection.
