While real world IOs mainly concetrate on IO sizes of 4KB, 8KB and 128KB, it's important to get a big picture of the drive's performance.

In this case, the controller and SATA 6Gbps bus are capable of faster throughput but the NAND can't keep up.

Transcend SSD320 & SSD720 (256GB) Review

by Kristian Vättö |
www.anandtech.com
Both models come with a 3-year warranty, which is normal but many high-end SSDs (such as Samsung SSD 840 Pro, Intel SSD 520, Plextor M5 Pro) carry a 5-year warranty nowadays, so the 3-year warranty in SSD720 is a bit disappointing.
The SSD320 comes in slightly slower, but the difference is a mere 3.9MB/s compared to SSD720.
