It seems like every six months, a new generation of some technology comes by. The spec sheet of Transcend's new SSD seems to be pretty beefy to say the least. You add some of the newest technologies an, while making it backwards compatible is a great way to improve on a product. Even with all these great features, the price always still matters for most users. The age old question still remains: Will you buy now, or wait until the technology is even cheaper? Let us know what you think!
