Apple SSD TS128E (Toshiba)

The Apple SSD TS128E is a 128 GB Apple-branded solid state drive sourced from Toshiba.

The TS128E relies on the not-so-modern SATA III interface for data transfer.

Notebookcheck says:

... The SSD is manufactured by Toshiba. Drives from various manufacturers were installed in the previous model. This seems no longer to be the case at least for the 128 GB model. (...) In contrast to the SSD installed in the previous model, the current model adds a heap of performance. While the result of 466 MB/s in AS SSD's sequential read benchmark is over twice as high as in the 2011 Air, the new subnotebook's sequential write only increases marginally to 238 MB/s. The currently installed SSD model presents a significant improvement with 4k blocks and has a lead of almost 50 percent. Thus, the Apple SSD is quite far in front. However, it cannot quite keep up with high-performance units like Intel's SSD 520 Series SSDSC2CW240A. | The results in HDTune and CrystalDiskMark confirm the impression that the drive made in AS SSD. Significant increases compared with the previous Air are evident. All in all, the MacBook Air 13 Mid 2012's hard drive subsystem is convincing throughout - Apple MacBook Air 13 Mid 2012 Subnotebook Review, 2012
