5.0 out of 5 stars Just put this in my MSI GE62 q2e apache laptop ...
By BGe on March 12, 2015
Just put this in my MSI GE62 q2e apache laptop. The original model only comes with a 1tb hdd so I ordered the 250g as an option for my operating system boot. MSI now uses a M.2 22x80 slot for the ssd. The transcend ssd fit perfectly and installed in seconds. Windows and MSI BIOS recognized the ssd. I used Paragon migrate OS hdd to ssd to mirror windows onto the new ssd. It costs $20 but it was worth it and worked flawlessly. The computer boots up in seconds now. Beyond impressed and you can not beat the price. It is a must buy for those in need of an M.2 ssd!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent ratio between price and performance
By ConsumerAdvocate (dakotad555) at (gmail) dot (com) on September 17, 2014
I bought this to upgrade the hard drive in my Samsung ATIV 9 ultrabook that ships with a 128gb drive that just so happens to also be a Transcend. I wasn't interested in artificial benchmarks in terms of speed, nor do I need a drive that tops out the charts such as the more expensive Crucial M550. The stock Transcend was plenty fast--I simply wanted more storage space.

Installation was a snap. I imaged my drive using Macrium Reflect which I cannot recommend highly enough. It's substantially better than Arconis True Image. Since I didn't have an external enclosure for the hard drive, I instead used a USB 3.0 external hard drive and burned the original disk's image to that drive. I then installed the new drive and burned the image on the USB disk to this one. All told it took about 30 minutes, including opening up and closing the notebook.

Since installation I've used the drive every day. My note book is a workhorse--I use it 3-4 hours a day, sometimes more. I've had zero issues with this drive, nor do I expect to in the future. My Crystal Disk scores are in the 480 range for sequential reads and 290 for writes, which isn't tip of the spear speed, but is plenty fast enough for my purposes. If you want the very fastest, check out the M550. It's a tad more expensive, but is roughly 10% faster.

Overall I'm very pleased with this disk. It does everything I need it to and the price is reasonable for a M.2 disk of this size.

5.0 out of 5 stars M.2 is the way to go! **Updated with firmware update instructions***
By B. Smith on March 9, 2015
Bought this M.2 as a low cost bootup SSD for my new X99 system and I am not disappointed. It works just as good as my Intel SSD that is less than two years old and a better price than their current SSD of same size. I was worried since I've never used transcend for SSD option but so far it's been a great low cost choice. If you have a newer motherboard that can take an M.2 then I would buy this unless you want a bigger boot drive. I bought this for my MSI X99 SLI Plus and I'm glad I did that! Will buy again!

***04/17/2016 Firmware update assistance guide***
After spending weeks digging into the firmware update failing to install per the instructions from Transcend I found a Chinese forum with basic instructions on an alternate way to update the firmware. I decided to build a guide to assist others with an alternate solution. Keep in mind firmware updates are at your own risk and you will have to reinstall Windows if you have it installed to this drive.

Download and install Transcend SSD Scope, go to FW Update, if you don’t have the latest version then it will allow you to hit Download. Once it’s complete it will let you know (the download is rather slow from Transcend so wait). Once completed the software should have made a folder on your C drive called Transcend_SSD_FW_Update_Package (unless you have a D drive then it will default to that drive). Once in the folder you’ll see a N1126KB_TS256GMTS800_TS6500_L95B_QDPD.zip file, extract this file. Once completed open the new folder of the same name and you’ll see an .ISO file N1126KB_TS256GMTS800_TS6500_L95B_ODP (for this example, latest version). You’ll need to extract that file (you can use a program like 7zip if you cannot do so).

Once extracted there is a folder that is called “TCE” open this folder and you’ll see a file called mydata.tgz, copy this file to a USB flash drive. Next you’ll need to download a Linux distribution and use that to install the file. I got this to work once I found Puppy Linux, you can do a google search for tahr-6.0.5_PAE (the first link in google took me to [...]) and download tahr-6.0.5_PAE.iso . Once this is completed use a program of your choice to burn it to a CD. After it is done you’ll want to reboot your PC and ensure it boots to the CD Rom.

After it is done loading you’ll be on the desktop. At the bottom you’ll see an icon for hard drives and flash drives, select the USB flash drive with the mydata.tgz file. Click on that file once and a new box will appear on the screen, click Yes then a new window will pop up and click Yes on that. On the next pop up window hit OK. Next click on the File icon in the upper left hand corner. On the new window click once on the green up arrow. On the next window click once on the “opt” folder. Then click once on JDM_FW_Update_Tool and the firmware update program will launch. It should show your Transcend drive listed, hit Update.

Now at completion you will get a pop up about shutting down so go ahead and allow that to happen. Once it stops at a text prompt you can eject the CD and disconnect the USB flash drive. At this point you will have to reload Windows if your OS is installed to this drive.
