More recently, we talked about the fact that rarely requested data can be stored on the HDD, and what should always be at hand, for example, work projects or even games - on fast SSD. But time goes, and now the “gold” in 1 TB of SSD drives has dropped in price so much that we change the paradigm and say: today filopovic already can be stored on the SATA SSD, and the files that need fast access to NVME drives. We constantly test solid-state drives, and their speed is really impressive, but on my motherboard only 2 M. 2 slots and as many as 8 SATA 600 ports, so if you really clog the volume of SSD-shkami, it is models with SATA interface.
Transcend SSD230S is a typical solid state disk for desktops and laptops. It can not even be called modern, because our colleagues have already done reviews of these 512 GB drives back in 2017. In those days the testers wrote that these drives have chips 3D NAND memory production Micron and controllers Silicon Motion SM2258. Our test drive of 1TB was able to open only the upper lid, behind which adorn the 4 chip NAND memory with marking Transcend 41-4450-S04DK and 1 chip cache SEC 913 K484G16 of 512 MB. It is clearly visible that the elements on the Board are mounted on both sides, but unscrew the screws that attach the Board to the SSD housing, I could not.
SSD-Z was also not particularly informative.
In principle, with such input data, only the claimed resource is important for me: 560 TBW, backed by a 5-year warranty. This means that the drive can be used in the tail and in the mane, and even installed in the NAS for video surveillance systems with constant cyclic recording. Simply put, the resource in the next 5 years, you can not even think, and then you look - and there will be completely different volumes and interfaces. But we got distracted, and it’s time to move on to the tests.
