Utilizing next-generation SATA III 6Gb/s interface, Transcend MTS800 delivers sequential read/write performance of up to 560MB/s and 460MB/s respectively and is designed for both industrial users and budget conscious individual consumers

Inbuilt Protective Technologies on the MTS800 offer optimum protection, including Error Correction Code (ECC) that helps detect and correct potential transfer errors, Device Sleep mode to reduce power consumption and shorten the response time upon wake-up from Sleep or Hibernate, and the S.M.A.R.T. function to efficiently monitor SSD health conditions.

Additionally, on board standard mechanisms on the MTS800 include Intelligent Block Management and Wear-leveling algorithm to protect data integrity and prolong SSD lifespan.

Transcend’s MTS series supports Intel® Smart Response Technology (ISRT) in which an SSD is used as a cache between the hard disk drive and the computer system to memorize the applications and files that are most frequently accessed. This allows the hard disk more storage capacity to process and store other programs and files so as to improve the overall efficiency.

The MTS 800 is backed by Transcend Three-year Limited Warranty.
