Transcend is primarily a general consumer product company,but they have an enthusiast grade product with the Ultra Series solid state drives. Could this be a sign of the things to come? - Most definitely. The cost of the Ultra Series drives are quite low compared to some of the other Indilinx SSDs we have tested. At less than 415 USD the Ultra is one of the lowest cost 120GB drives on the market. The only issue is that a few of the 128GB drives with the same controller, cache and memory are close to 100 USD less.
The Transcend Ultra 120GB is a very fast SSD and compares with the best of breed drives that are sold at a much higher premium. The performance is there and it is clearly evident when we see the performance against the Crucial M225.
Here we are with a dilemma; the Transcend Ultra in 120GB trim is faster than an award winning SSD, but costs a fair bit more as well. It really comes down to what level of performance you are willing to pay for. This takes us back to the consumer vs. enthusiast market. Enthusiasts are willing to pay a premium for higher performing products and consumers are looking for the best bang for the buck. It is really going to come down to which side of the line you stand on if the Transcend Ultra is for you.
