This drive is failing!

60srocker "60srocker", Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: I installed this in my computer recently. I originally had two hard drives, but both of them fit within 256GB, so I just 'told' the included software to 'clone' both drives. The original 'C' drive copied OK, but the other drive caused me problems. I had to run several 'check disk' activities for this one, and would up losing a lot of data (that is still on the original drive). I haven't recently had any problems that I know of on this drive.

Not supported on the Mac

Ben Around, Amazon

  • Summary: Would be nice if the manufacturer/seller mentioned this fact. I understand if you update the firmware using a PC you can then get it working with a Mac, but why go through all that trouble; just buy a compatible drive if you have a Mac.

Transcend SSD does not work on ASUS laptops

ComputerGuyNJ, Amazon
18 July 2013
  • Summary: I received the Transcend TS256GSSD320 (SATA 6gbps, 256gigs) drive on time. This drive did not boot on my ASUS A55A laptop. This laptop does boot the Corsair Neutron 120gb SSD and 2 other 7200rpm HDDs. I tried updating the laptop BIOS (rev 407) and SSD Firmware (5.0.6). It still would not boot. This is a well known problem. Google: ASUS Transcend SSD Boot. Also, this will not boot on a particular model of MacBook. The hard drive does detect in BIOS.

Works great but won't take firmware update

D. Hines, Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: I have to agree with the "not ready for prime time" reviewer. It's nice that the manufacturer is offering potential solutions to reviews complaining about this defect, but it would be much nicer if those solutions actually worked. I won't be purchasing any more Transcend products.

  • Summary: Folks this Drive is equipped with the Sandforce 2281 Controller that is know to have a defective Firmware Version 5.0.1. which has broken TRIM. Please Google sanforce 5.0.1 broken TRIM you can read all about it. There are tons about it and more every day as Manufacturers scramble to release new Firmware now that the word is out that they were selling defective Drives!!

Quoted speeds are way less

Timster, Amazon
5 September 2012
  • Summary: I was deciding upon either purchasing this SSD or the Crucial one which was more expensive. The speeds looked similar so I bought this one, but when I got it is was way slower than what they advertised. More around 120 read and 100 write. This is on Sata 2 mind you, but I expected somewhat faster speeds than this. When I looked at the Crucial reviews for Sata 2 people were saying they got in the 200 range.
