Good deal – The Transcend MTE250S 1 TB SSD "5 Stars" for €83.16 (-21%) – Les Numériques

Transcend’s MTE250S is a high-end SSD that promises read speeds of up to 7200 MB/s and 6200 MB/s write speeds. Unlike its cousin MTE250H, which we tested, it does not have a heatsink.

The MTE250S 1TB is the M.2 SSD of choice for those who want fast and efficient storage. His reading and writing speeds are excellent. Please note that you must use a heat sink for this, otherwise the performance of the heater will be limited. If necessary, we can resort to the MTE250H, which, although otherwise identical, has a heatsink.

Strong points

  • Excellent read and write speeds.
  • Very fast real copy speeds.
  • 5 year guarantee.

Weak points

  • Heatsink required to achieve good flow rates.
  • Somewhat outdated software.

Note: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices of all retailers in the last month for the product, with safety rules in place to exclude prices from stores whose VAT policy is unclear (so-called “gray ” stores, typically for imports from China).


The Samsung 990 Pro 1TB is an excellent internal SSD with ultra-fast read and write speeds. It competes directly with Kingston’s KC3000, which was already very fast while offering more controlled heating.
