Transcend 720 2.5" 512GB Internal Solid State Drive
Transcend is one of the leading names in flash memory, but unlike SanDisk or Kingston they won't make you burn your wallet in order to buy their top-notch hardware. When it comes to performance SSDs, Transcend's 720 2.5" 512GB SSD is the best. With read and write speeds up to 560MB/s and 540MB/s respectively, this is one of the fastest standard SSDs out there. Along with the high read and write speeds is an impressive capacity, rave reviews, and even included 256-bit encryption capabilities. While a bit pricier than most drives, the Transcend 720 is seriously worth its weight in gold, though you will need to buy a 3.5-inch bracket if you choose to use it in your run-of-the-mill desktop.
