The new USB 3.0 SSD18C3 is based on NAND flash memory and it includes a new device driver which, once installed, switches the SSD into Turbo mode, providing synthetic data transfer speeds up to 260MB/s when connected to a USB 3.0 port. This means a DVD movie will take around fifteen seconds to process. The SSD is also compatible with USB 2.0. Due to the absence of moving parts, the SSD18C3 can withstand shock or vibration better than HDDs. The SSD is housed in a silicone outer shell and is about as thick as a deck of poker playing cards.


The device has a one touch auto-backup button, which, preloaded with the Backup Manager software, allows users to backup and synchronize their data. Users can also download Transcend’s JetFlash Elite data management tools to help them get automatic website authentication, or for checking non web-based email accounts remotely by plugging the SSD into any computer with Internet access.


Transcend’s new SSD18C3 Solid State Drive is available for a price of Rs. 10,095 for the 64GB model and Rs. 20,192 for the 128GB model.
