This family of solid state drives (SSDs) utilises the advanced Multi-Level Cell (MLC) 19nm NAND technology from Toshiba. With an unrivalled combination of capacity, performance and power efficiency, the THNSNH range delivers an uncompromised storage solution for high end and thin notebooks, tablets, PCs, all-in-one desktop computers as well as industrial PC applications. The small form factor drives boast a high capacity of up to 512 GB and are available in a range of sizes: THNSNHxxxGBST (9.5mm height, 60, 128, 256, 512 GB), THNSNHxxxGCST (7.0mm height, 60, 128, 256, 512 GB) and the THNSNHxxxGMCT (mSATATM).
The THNSNH range of SSDs features Toshiba’s QSBCTM (Quadruple Swing-By Code), a strong and highly efficient Error Correction Code (ECC) protecting against any read errors in the device. Furthermore, deterministic zeroing TRIM function is supported, allowing the host operating system to inform the SSD about data blocks which are no longer in use and can be wiped internally. The THNSNH series also utilises Advanced Power Management (APM) technology to ensure the lowest levels of energy consumption. With an additional ‘data corrupt protection’ feature, the SSDs protect any data which is being moved internally, against unexpected power-loss and write errors.
The THNSNH is one of the most desirable SSD solutions available on the market today ensuring Toshiba as the NAND Flash technology leader.

Onwards to the problems.
One problem comes from the drive being a bit stubborn. Its firmware doesn't communicate data throughput, which can lead to a lot of popular software malfunctions (e.g. SSDLife will constantly tell you the drive is failing because of reasons), so monitoring the drive for health becomes cumbersome.
Another problem is that Toshiba doesn't offer any SSD tools like Intel or OCZ, so you can't reliably zero-fill it before re-installing the operating system.
My third biggest problem and adding up to the point of actually returning the drive for a refund was the packaging of the drive. It came in a big cardboard box, between two styrofoam sheets and that was it. No anti-static bag, no details, nothing. Bad, bad, bad, bad.
All in all, a good drive, good transfer speeds, bad implementation of the firmware - this is actually fixable in a future release, but I doubt they'll actually do it.
In my opinion it's perfectly formed when your operating system install only takes up less than 5Gb, a fraction of the drive. You'd wonder why you need anything bigger!!
I would buy several more if the price didn't shoot up to £36.
