    Default Transcend SSD370 128GB Review

    Today we have the Transcend SSD370 in a 128GB capacity for a closer look.That's not a terribly flashy name for a drive, but we care less about the marketing and more bang for our buck. How about $70 for this SSD, including a rather impressive accessory package? If you're looking for a very affordable speed upgrade for a notebook or HTPC with a slim form factor SSD, the Transcend SSD370 128GB might be just the thing you need.

    Is this a typo?
    should it not read Performance decreases as capacity increases

    WHAT WE DISLIKED:

    Sequential Write speeds only satisfactory; Performance increases as capacity increases.?

    Based on the final page I would say no, it was intentional.

    "The SSD370 performance numbers are also interesting, as the speeds increase (specifically, the Write speeds) as you go higher in capacity. Spend more, get more. It’s a unique proposition to consumers, and again, likely matters more to those who are indeed willing to spend more. If you’re on a tight budget, we suspect cost is more critical than 4K Random writes at a Queue Depth of 64, for example."



    Also stated on the "Closer Look" Page.

    "So how well does this rebadged controller perform? Well, according to Transcend, it depends which capacity drive model you get. Performance increases with these drives as capacity increases, so the more you spend, the better the performance"
