Transcend SSD720 256GB SSD Review - Packaging

Transcend goes for gold with its new flagship SSD720 product that brings LSI SandForce performance to a new higher capacity point. The new 7mm package coupled with 24nm flash and working TRIM makes this the best RAISE free SandForce offering yet.

Transcend's retail box is actually really cool to see in person. We can't capture the different textures of the package in pictures without looking a bit obsessed about touching things so we'll just tell you to find one at a retail store or better yet purchase one online and check it out for yourself.


This is one of the better retail packages on the market now and I'd give it a second look if found on a retail shelf. Transcend includes a nice list of features and performance information right on the front of the package.

On the back you're treated to the full specification list, package contents and even a brief statement on the features.

Many times we see SSDs in fairly plain packages that aren't designed to attract shoppers in a retail environment, but Transcend went full on with lots of details.

I think you get the idea.

The inner packaging was very good as well. Here we see the drive in a separate chamber away from the accessories so it's safe from being scratched during shipping.

Transcend included a new accessory package that allows you to get up and running quickly. We would have liked to see a SATA cable included, though.
