Transcend brings SSDs to the ExpressCard form-factor

While most manufacturers are using the 1.8" or 2.5" mobile hard disk drive (HDD) form-factor for solid-state drives (SSDs), Transcend is going a different route with its latest offering. The company has displayed a USB 2.0-based ExpressCard SSD that is available in capacities up to 16GB.

The SSDs are Windows Vista ReadyBoost compatible, feature Error Correction Code (ECC) and wear-leveling algorithms to ensure data integrity. And thanks to the USB 2.0 interface, the SSD shows up as a regular USB flash drive in Windows.

Transcend is also bundling an ExpressCard to USB adapter with the drives for those that would like to use it externally or don't have an ExpressCard slot.

Transcend's ExpressCard SSD will be available in capacities of 2GB, 4GB, 8GB and 16GB. Pricing and availability have not been announced, but will surely follow later this month.
