Transcend SSD320 256GB SSD
Transcend uses the same case for the SSD320 that we found on the SSD720. This seems to be a Transcend exclusive case since we've not encountered it on other products before. The case is strong and not flimsy like many of the other 7mm cases we've ran across so far.
All of the information is on the front label, but on the back you can see that all of the bottom mounting positions are where they should be.
The 7mm z-height also positions the side mounting points in the standard notebook location so you won't have any problems running this drive in your regular notebook or desktop with the included desktop adapter bracket.
The adapter bracket offsets the drive to the side so the SATA power and data ports are closer to inline with 3.5" form factor drives in your computer. This makes cable management easier if your power supply has very stiff cables.
Inside we found a LSI SandForce SF-2281 controller and sixteen NAND flash chips.
There are eight NAND flash chips on each side of the PCB. This drive also has an extensive power management section that you see here.
I have no idea who made these NAND flash ICs, but I suspect they are rebranded Micron 25nm L74 chips.
