Transcend SSD720 256GB SSD




Here we get our first look at the actual drive. Transcend uses a case design that we haven't see used before.




There isn't too much different about this case on the surface, but it is sturdy, an attribute that's started to get overlooked in the 7mm z-height products.




Although this is a 7mm drive, all of the mounting points line up with 9.5mm drives so you won't have a problem installing the SSD720 in your existing notebook or desktop (with the included desktop adapter bracket).




The included bracket offsets the drive so your SATA power and data cables are close to the same location as your 3.5" form factor drives. This is important if you have a number of drives and a power supply that has stiff cables. The offset makes your cable management easier.




Inside we found a LSI SandForce SF-2281 controller and sixteen SanDisk 24nm Toggle Model NAND Flash ICs.




There are eight flash chips on each side of the PCB.
