SSD18C3
USB 3.0 Portable Solid State Drive

SSD18C3 Transcend has a portable 1.8in Solid State works with USB 3.0. It is small and very mobile, and probably will not make your information unreadable if you accidentally dropped. These are the best features of this device is more durable than conventional hard disk and is very small. However, it has a capacity as large as a conventional unit (64 GB), the power, nothing fancy, and expensive.

 

The SSD18C3 is at $ 299 and a Windows 59.6GB formatted capacity, resulting in a cost-per-gigabyte price of 5.01 $ matches. To put this in perspective, the current selling price of a USB flash drive 16 GB on the Australian market, approximately $ 22, or about $ 1.30 per gigabyte, and a typical 500 GB USB 3.0 Hard Drive Notebook for about 18 cents per gigabyte . In this type of value, you must make sure that you really want the Transcend and you will be well used to make.

 

Physically, this is a good trick. Can an external silicone soft touch and fingerprints are not recorded. If you have enough pressure on the case, turn him, but he is weak. This is a backup button on the hard disk that works with the backup software, and there is a situation of two-color LED. The LED flashes blue when connected to a USB 3.0 port, and orange when connected plugs into a USB 2.0 port, so you know whether the device is connected to the appropriate port or not. Transcend the unit comes with a dual-head USB cable 3.0 - the two ends of the cable to a PC, where the only offer USB 3.0 port can not get the full 5V, the device must be connected.

 

Since there is a large hard disk, not perfect enough to secure a large collection of video files, but it could be for music and photography (which held more than 3,000 RAW files). This is one of the hits on this unit if: 59GB capacity size just do not go as far these days.

 

The unit does not come with any encryption software, you must have their own way to protect data, depending on the version of Windows you can not use a good solution on the right side of the box for transporting sensitive documents in and out of the office , but that comes only with a very simple backup software that works in conjunction with the button on the device itself. Once you file backup software, start a key to the process. It is very easy to keep updating its backup by pressing this button, but the dialogue of the software will remain on top until the fuse, which is very annoying.

 

With ATTO Disk Benchmark CrystalDiskMark and Transcend SSD18C3 almost at your ISP to read and write statements of 260 megabytes per second (Mbps) and 110MBps: 223MBps to 105MBps CrystalDiskMark and he recorded, while the hard disk and the ATTO 227MBps 113MBps recorded.

 

Transcend SSD18C3In our own real world reference, was the unit had not expected as soon as we do. We tested the drive by connecting to a USB 3.0 port with a capacity of 80 GB with a laptop SSDMAEMC080G2 Intel SSD. He said a value of 3 GB of small files (1 MB) with a speed of 40Mbps in 85.71MBps and wrote, read 19.4GB large file (600 MB and 1.4 GB) and written in 83.98MBps 81.17MBps. We have tried to install it after the driver delivered Transcend with optional hard drive.

 

These results are robust (and more than two times faster than USB 2.0 file in the units of the same laptop), but not as good as a standard USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive. The Hitachi Touro 500GB USB 3.0 hard drive recorded faster results, even when the laptop is connected. The sooner you get slow hard drive is the most comprehensive, yet in a position similar results to the SSD.

 

Transcend SSD18C3 BoxWhat these figures show is that in a real scenario, the Transcend 64GB SSD is super fast and will not blow your mind What has to go for two things: a smaller and more reliable data because they have no moving parts to break, if it can have dropped. Unless you specifically want a unit that is smaller and more durable than a standard hard drive, USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive, and do not mind paying the extra flash memory, then go to a better standard hard drive.
