Iometer Results (Part 1)

Lastly, we put the drives through the rigorous grind of Iometer, with different workloads and I/O queue depths. We have chosen to show results from a queue depth of 1 to 5 as this better represents the workloads a typical consumer might face.

The Transcend’s drive performance on Iometer is pretty decent. It’s total I/O for most runs puts it near the top of the pack, but its performance on the 64k streaming writes run was slightly below standard. 

The Good
Very good and fairly consistent performance
Amongst the quickest high-end consumer SSD
Attractive price
The Bad
No installation brackets/racks provided
