Toshiba THNSNH 256GB SSD Review
Today, we have on our test bench the Toshiba THNSNH256GCST 256 GB. I find it a bit surprising that Toshiba doesn’t use an easier naming scheme, but this is a telltale sign that the company is more focused on OEM customers, like Lenovo and system integrators, rather than the end-user. You can also bet that Toshiba uses these SSDs in their own extensive notebook lineup.
Dissecting the part number, we start with “THNSNH”, which is the drive “model”, followed by the capacity and “GCST”, which indicates that this is a 2.5 inch, 7 mm thick drive (compatible with Intel Ultrabooks). Other suffixes are “GBST” for 9 mm thickness and “GMCT” for mSATA form-factor. Earlier Toshiba models used the THNSNF and THNSNC prefixes–note the difference in the last letter. Some EU shops also list these drives as of the Toshiba “HG5d” Series, which is pretty confusing if you ask me… at techPowerUp!
