Transcend MSA720 128GB mSATA SSD Review

Postby Apoptosis » Thu Apr 25, 2013 7:39 am

We've had a look at a few different mSATA drives lately and coincidentally, all have been SandForce SF-2281 based. Now we have a turn at Transcends latest line of mSATA drives which also feature the SF-2281 controller. This sets up a nice comparison for us to perform our evaluation so have a look at what we found in our latest storage review.


Transcend has a nice mSATA product on their hands with the MSA720 although it could easily get lost in the shuffle of the numerous SF-2281 mSATA drives popping up all over. It doesn't appear to be as widely available at retailers as some other brands. Performance overall was very good and where it should be based on our experience with this controller/NAND configuration. We saw max read/writes at nearly 560MB/s and 525MB/s respectively and the predictable dip in performance when subjected to incompressible data.
