Quick OverviewModel - Transcend 832S
Transcend's M.2 SSD 832S adopts a single-sided M.2 2280 form factor, making it slimmer and highly compatible with space-limited applications and small form factor devices, such as thin, light notebooks and high-performance PCs. Featuring the SATA III 6Gb/s interface, DDR3 DRAM cache, enhanced firmware algorithms, and built with high-quality NAND flash, the ultra-compact M.2 SSD 832S delivers high performance and peerless reliability.
Unlike the existing planar NAND chips, 3D NAND flash is a type of flash memory in which the memory cells are stacked vertically in multiple layers. 3D NAND is developed to break through density limitations of the 2D planar NAND, and thus can deliver a greater level of performance and endurance.
Single-sided to fit perfectly in small form factor devices
Compliant with M.2 form factor Type 2280, Transcend's 3D NAND M.2 SSD 832S is just 80mm in length and comes in a single-sided layout - meaning that only one side of the SSD has components attached to it - making the 832S the perfect solution for small form factor laptops and ultra-light PCs. The M.2 SSD 832S makes for an easy upgrade to your computer, taking up little space while giving it a much needed energy boost.
Superior transfer speeds
Featuring the M.2 standard (80mm), the next generation SATA III 6Gb/s interface and a powerful controller, Transcend's M.2 SSD 832S reaches incredible read and write speeds of up to 560MB/s and 500MB/s. When used as a cache, the M.2 SSD 832S provides 1.5 times faster boot time than conventional hard drives.
Dedicated to maximizing high-performance computing, the M.2 SSD 832S features 4k random file read and write speeds up to 85,000 IOPS that deliver incredibly short loading times and almost instant response for heavy graphics and multimedia applications.
The M.2 form factor enables expansion and integration of functions onto a single form factor module solution. M.2 SSDs include a smaller form factor but with larger capacities than that of mSATA and half-slim SSDs. With its singled-sided M.2 form factor, the SSD 832S is even slimmer and offers better compatibility.
Despite its extra-small dimensions, the M.2 SSD 832S boasts a DDR3 DRAM cache and contains advanced features to enhance the performance of the SSD.

Solid State Drive [SSD] offers lightning speed for your PC to boot up and run applications compared to the traditional Hard disks. While your processor can handle billions of cycles per second, it spends a lot of time waiting for your drive to feed data. Hard drives are particularly sluggish because they have moving parts and platters that have to spin up. To get optimal performance, you need a good SSD. We are here to provide the knowledge you need to make an informed purchasing decision.
Here are the facts you need to take into account while purchasing a SSD:
Find out if you have slots for M.2 drives on your motherboard and room in the chassis. If not, you may need a 2.5-inch drive instead.
Make sure you trust the quality of the manufacturer if you plan to use the SSD for the long term. The quality of the manufacturer will be reflected in how the wear patterns of the SSD are managed as well as the possibility of whether or not you get a warning before your SSD dies.
Most SSDs range from 120 GB to 2 TB. 120 GB drives are the cheapest but adequately capable of handling operating system and productivity applications. It costs a little extra to step up from 120 to 250 GB but the money is well spent in terms of performance. 500GB is the sweet spot between price, performance, and capacity for most users – particularly if you don't have the budget for a 1TB model.
Remember that high-end drives, while technically faster, won’t often feel speedier than less-speedy options in common tasks.
So unless you’re chasing extreme speed for professional or enthusiast reasons, it’s often best to choose an affordable mainstream drive that has the capacity you need at a price you can afford.
