Price

Price:

Read

Read:
"I read a few negative reviews."
_
"While the write speed isn't great, the read speed is fantastic."
_
"I clocked it at 537 MB Sec read, 433 MB Sec write on my laptop, which was quite impressive."
_
"Read speeds are great over 400MB a second but write speeds are around 160MB a second not much better then a regular hard drive."
_
"Ran a crystaldisk benchmark on the laptop and was able to read at 550MBps and write at over 330MBps."
_
"Read & write from 77MB s & 74MB s jumped to 424MB s & 366MB s. Transcend is a well reputed company in flash storage, but their SSDs are not that popular."
_
"Older computers might use the IDE compatible mode, which will significantly reduce read write speed.3."

Windows

Windows:
"The drive itself works great, but the accompanying software is useless (I'm running Windows 7 64-bit)."
_
"I used the included (downloaded) software to copy a failing Dell notebook drive (windows 8.1) to the new SSD drive mounted in a USB enclosure."
_
"The drive itself works great, but the accompanying software is useless (I'm running Windows 7 64-bit)."
_
"My company has bought about a dozen of these Transcend 512GB SSDs so far to upgrade existing Windows 7 8 10 and Ubuntu Linux laptops and desktops, and I've been very happy with them."
_
"So I suggest you look at alternatives - most companies probably already have a standard for drive copiers, but for home users on Windows the free version of Macrium Reflect is a great choice, I used it myself when I put one of these into my home desktop, and it was fantastic."
_
"I setup the windows 10 install iso on a usb using the windows media creation tool, and booted up and installed windows 10 on this ssd without any hiccups."
