Transcend Information ESD200 portable SSD review

 

The good old portable-storage concept turns over a new leaf with the Transcend Information ESD200 portable solid-state drive.

The Transcend ESD200 portable SSD is supercompact and superfast.

The drive's capacity caps at just 256GB, and its bundled software is useless.

Compact and fast, the Transcend ESD200 is an excellent storage and backup extension for your USB 3.0-enabled laptop.

Transcend ESD200 external USB 3.0 SSD Review

 

We check out Transcend's small but speedy external USB 3.0 SSD.

The Transcend ESD200 isn’t setting any new records with either its performance or pocketability but nonetheless it offers genuinely high-end SSD performance in a package that is markedly smaller than a 2.5in SSD. With a price of under £105 it also...

Transcend ESD200 256GB

 

It's the first I've seen that's based on a 1.8-inch internal drive, making it much more compact than traditional 2.5-inch-based counterparts. On top of that, it uses an SSD as storage and offers the best performance I've seen.

Transcend ESD200 Portable SSD (256GB) - Flash in Your Pocket

 

The Transcend ESD200 is unlike other portable external hard drives because it packs an SSD as opposed to a traditional mechanical hard disk. However, can its USB 3.0 interface take full advantage of the SSD's performance benefits? We find out.

Much faster than typical 2.5-inch portable external hard drives ; Very compact ; Bundled backup software has lots of features

Very pricey ; Gimmicky "One Touch Auto-Backup" button ; Bundled backup software is clumsy and unintuitive

The Kingston HyperX Max 3.0 has long been discontinued so its not a viable alternative to the Transcend ESD200. However, bear in mind that when it was first launched a few years ago, a comparable 256GB variant of that drive commanded a whopping US$599...
