Transcend has their hands in several consumer markets these days. The company is known mainly for their memory products like compact flash and thumb drives. The company has been branching out into different market segments and now has a line of consumer electronics like digital photo frames and MP3 players. Transcend has also ventured into solid state drives and has an impressive lineup started.
The latest SSD in Transcend's portfolio is the Ultra. The Ultra is actually a series name but there are currently only two models available, the 60GB and 120GB capacity drives. The Ultra Series uses an Indilinx Barefoot controller, the same version with 64MB cache that we have tested here numerous times and have fallen in love with.
Even though Transcend has a handful of SSDs and even a few listed on Newegg, it was difficult to find the Ultra Series for sale here in the US. After a fairly extensive search I did find the drives at a few e-tail shops, but the price range was pretty wide. One of the best options I found for the 120GB like what we are reviewing here today was at Buy.com. They listed the 120GB version for 413.99. Let's move on to see what you get for your dollar.
