Transcend StoreJet 25M-R (320GB)

 

A shockproof external hard drive built to military standards.

Shockproof casing, fast

StoreJet Elite software is slightly bloated

For a portable hard drive that can survive a few knocks, Transcend's StoreJet 25M-R is a great option. This is complemented by fast transfer speeds, though the accompanying software isn't entirely useful.

Transcend StoreJet 320GB

 

Casing is slightly rubberized. The Y-cable for USB connectivity is a good add on, but the two year warranty is a letdown.

One-touch button ; Bundled software

Low warranty period

The casing has a button for one-touch backup, and feels slightly rubberized to the touch and might even survive a few shocks that the others can't. The fact that it comes with a Y-cable for USB connectivity is good too, but the two year warranty lets...

Product Specifications

Transcend's ultra series solid state drive - SSD25D is a 2.5" SATA II SSD equipped with 64MB of built-in DRAM cache. It far outperforms standard 2.5" hard drives, delivering extraordinary sustained transfer speeds of up to 230MB/s read and 180MB/s write to guarantee blazing fast throughput, regardless of file size or type. With these extremely fast transfers and virtually non-existent latency, a computer equipped with a Transcend SSD25D is more responsive, boots-up faster, and launches software applications in a fraction of the time required with a standard hard drive. The increased speed potential gained from using a high-speed DRAM cache makes the SSD25D an ideal upgrade for high-end gaming systems and workstations, providing a more enjoyable, lag-free computing experience. Built with reliable NAND flash memory that contains no moving parts, the SSD25D is highly rugged, remains cool and quiet while in operation, and is practically immune to mechanical failure caused by excess vibration, shock or heat. In addition, the SSD25D uses integrated ECC (Error Correction Code) to ensure accurate data transfer, and also features built-in wear leveling technology for consistent long-life operation that gives peace of mind to users who heavily rely on the data stored in their computers. Transcend's DRAM cache-equipped SSD25D features an industry-standard 3.0Gb/s SATA II interface and 2.5" form factor to allow easy and straightforward user installation in most notebook and desktop computers, just like a conventional hard drive. Moreover, the SSD25D's low power requirements and cool, silent operation greatly benefit notebook users with increased efficiency and longer battery runtime. The Ultra Speed SSD25D is ideal for system builders, gamers, or anyone who is looking for an easy upgrade to supercharge their notebook or desktop PC with a dose of high-octane performance.
