SLOW. Unthinkably slow.

  • Summary: Yes, it's functional, but it's so pitifully slow that my spinning magnetic drive is literally orders of magnitude faster. Unless you are desperate for the power savings it may provide (which I didn't test, because it was unusable for me due to the speed problems), you should not buy this.

Did not work on my laptop

Ricardo, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this disk for a Gateway M520 and even though installing both Ubuntu and Windows was successful and I could see the data in the disk, the disk never managed to boot the computer at all.

Maybe depends from unit to unit

jlaw, Amazon

  • Summary: I tried installing it, but it is hardly recognized by the computers (both Windows and Mac) when I tried to copy image into it. I tried switching the jumper settings, sometimes it showed up as 7.3 GB drive, sometimes as "unrecognizable" drive. Really hard to work on this, so I had to send it back.

not the life I expected...

C. Dixon, Amazon

Transcemd

Robert A. Gauchey, Amazon
9 January 2010
  • Summary: Could copy files to it and from it but when cloning it with my OS I could not get it to be recognized. Contacted Transcend and they said this drive had to be sent back to them for a firmware upgrade to be used as a boot drive. It's been over a month and I'm awaiting it's return.

I think it is great! -- until they died!

B. Williams, Amazon
10 October 2009
  • Summary: I'm not sure why the other reviewers were having such bad luck with this. Perhaps they just don't understand how solid state disks work and what they are good for? I think this drive is very fast and you can't beat the price.

Keep away from this item

P. Busse, Amazon
10 October 2009
  • Summary: Formatting is really fast; installing windows xp broke of suddenly, my notebook getting extremely hot in the meantime. None of three computers found the card then, no further formatting or installing was possible. This Transcend card is definitely an absolute flop.

not the product's fault

Barbara Gasbarre, Amazon
20 February 2009
  • Summary: This product was recommended to us by our IT staff to replace a printer hard drive, that has lived it's life. Our printer is not able to manage the speed of the solid state and therefore, we had to return it.
