Transcend are hitting up the SSD market today with a new top-most capacity entry into its existing lineup, 192GB. This 2.5-inch SATA II SSD certainly looks the goods with its transfer rates of 150MB/sec (read) and 90MB/sec (write) and includes ECC (Error Code Correction) and built-in wear leveling technologies to guarentee ultra-long lifespan.

Transcend's complete SSD lineup now comprises drives ranging from as small as 8GB through to the 192GB model you see here today and all are backed by a two-year warranty.


An actual MSRP of this particular drive hasn't yet been disclosed but it's getting up there in the way of SSD storage capacity so it's safe to assume it'll cost a pretty penny. You can read a bit more about it within the press release here.


Featuring a powerful new controller, Transcend's MLC-equipped 192GB SSD far outpaces standard 2.5" hard drives, delivering exceptional sustained read/write speeds of up to 150MB / 90MB per second to guarantee fast throughput regardless of file size. With these high-speed transfer rates and virtually non-existent (0.2ms) latency, an SSD-equipped computer boots-up faster, games run more smoothly, and overall system responsiveness is improved. Moreover, this SSD's industry-standard SATA II interface and 2.5" form factor allow easy and straightforward user installation in most notebook computers and mainstream PCs just like regular hard drives.
