Transcend announces SSD220 solid-state drive line

The maker of memory products Transcend has announced a new budget-oriented line of solid-state drives called SSD220. The main feature of the new drives is price but they come with nice tech specs that are perfect for price-conscious buyers too.

All SSD220 models are housed in aluminum chassis that measure 100 x 69.85 x 6.8 mm and that sport the common 2.5-inch form factor. The drives are based on TLC NAND flash memory and support the latest SATA 3.0 data transfer protocol. A Silicon Motion SM2256KAB memory controller works with the memory chips inside. The SSD220 line includes two models at the moment with capacities of 240 GB and 480 GB. The drives reach up to 550 MB/sec of sequential read speed, up to 450 MB/sec of sequential write speed and 80 000 IOPS while reading and writing. In addition to this the new Transcend SSDs support TRIM, Garbage Collection and the energy-saving DevSleep mode and feature 3-year warranties.

No word on pricing as of now.
