Transcend MTS860 64GB M.2 SSD Review

It looks like the MTS800 model that I reviewed almost half a year ago but it isn’t, the MTS860 model is available in only 64GB capacity and it’s an M.2 SSD that uses SuperMLC NAND Flash instead of Synchronous MLC like the MTS800 (and MTS600 and MTS400) range.

The unit doesn’t come with consumer packaging as it’s an industrial SSD solution for embedded products, details at the official product page though it’s actually listed there.

Looking at the specs on the official product page, it seems that Transcend has the write-speeds mixed up as it is the MTS860 that has faster write speed. Do consider the fact that SuperMLC is superior over Synchronious MLC so it make sense that the MTS860 should have faster write speed.

The Verdict

The Transcend MTS860 64GB M.2 SSD is blazing fast, showing some 30% speed improvement over the MTS800 model that I’ve tested. I do not have the price at the time of this article as this is an Industrial SSD solution for embedded products but going by the technology involved I reckon it’s should be priced a bit higher than most 64GB M.2 SSD.
