Product Description

Transcend's 2.5 Inch IDE Solid State Disks (SSDs) are an ultra-fast, shock proof, power-saving alternative to traditional hard disk drives. These flash memory-based disk drives consume 75% less power, operate up to 75% faster and are nearly 5 times more shock resistant than traditional drives. They also last 4 times longer and weigh a little as half that of their mechanical alternatives.

Systems running with a Transcend 2.5 Inch SSD will experience less than 25% of the boot-up time than mechanical drives. For example, a system built with a mechanical drive that boots up in 26-30 seconds, will boot up in about 8 seconds with a Transcend 2.5 Inch SSD.

The standard 2.5 Inch dimensions and IDE interface ensures 100% compatibility with normal hard drives for easy drop-in installation. Simply choose the capacity to fit your needs.

First of all, let me emphasize that as far as I know this is a perfectly good product when used appropriately. I found it did not suit me, perhaps because I did not do my research carefully enough. However I am posting this review to help anyone else who is in a similar position. You should read the whole review before forming any conclusions.

Recently I wanted to upgrade a 2006-vintage Dell Inspiron 1300 laptop. This was an entry-level computer when it was bought, and had accumulated lots of cruft over the years; critically, it had only 512 MB of RAM and a small, 40GB Western Digital hard drive. Those performed adequately still, but the disk was quite full. So I upgraded the RAM to a more generous 2GB - more than enough for Windows XP - and looked around for a suitable hard drive upgrade. The need for an EIDE interface, rather than the now nearly universal SATA, severely cramped my choice. The difference is glaringly obvious when you look at the drives: EIDE presents a forest of little gold-coloured pins, whereas SATA uses a discreet slim plastic plug which slips into an equally neat socket. Converters are available, but a laptop leaves no physical space for one as the hard drive fits tightly into its allotted space with not a millimetre to spare.

I was pleased to find this product - an SSD with an EIDE interface! Just the thing to give my little laptop some badly-needed ooomph. Unfortunately I left one important factor out of consideration: Windows XP. Never SSD-friendly, Windows XP lacks the built-in TRIM facility of Windows 7 and recent Linux distributions. Moreover, it is very sensitive to partition alignment.

One formatted - with disc management on Windows XP - the OS readily recognised the SSD in either of two USB-caddies. Impressive, compared even with 20GB hard drives.

Now for getting it into the hard drive position of my Dell Latitude C640:

Physically, it is not exactly the same size as a hard drive. At the outer end the fixing holes are slightly further from the end than is a comfortable fit for the caddy-end.
But it fitted into the drive slot, and it felt as if the working end engaged properly.

I now tried to boot fom CD. The BIOS progress bar did not complete.

Clearly the drive was in position, but I need to sort out the BIOS of this machine before I go any further - so not a like-for-like changeover of drives with this old laptop.

To Be Continued ...

This Transcend SSD is really the only serious contender, with the possible exception of Kingston, If you're lumbered with an ageing laptop with an old PATA interface that you want to squeeze the last few drops of functionality out of, just don't expect it to turn your 10 year old Pentium M780 laptop into a blistering speed machine! but, and it's a big but, it may just allow you to run some modernish programmes on an old windows XP machine I also maxed out the RAM on my old Acer (2Gb limit on pentium M7xx chipsets) and upgraded from a 1.76Ghz M740 to a 2.26Ghz M780 CPU. to be honest it was hardly worth the effort as performance is barely perceptibly improved, the extra RAM probably made the most difference (512 to 2GB)

Rejuvenated an old Compaq Armada E500 laptop by replacing the original hard drive with this solid state one, giving it a 0.8ms average access time for disk I/O. Now runs like new.

Just as a footnote: The best Linux distro to run with this new configuration is Fedora XFCE. The original Ubuntu 10.4 Netbook Remix and some later ones bootloaders (Grub in particular) would not boot the solid state drive correctly.

Perfect for speeding up my old IDE-based laptop. The plastic packaging although very protective was a little difficult to remove without the use of scissors.
