I'm considering the Transcend 128GB SSD [MLC] and am wondering if one can encrypt the data (e.g., using TrueCrypt) and backup the data (e.g., using Norton Ghost or Acronis)? I haven't found posts around the web about this.

More importantly, will Transcend require a lot of tweaks to work with XP?

I haven't found any comments in user forums around the web; however, I have found lots of comments about the Ocz Core portable SSD, which requires lots of patience and tweaking with XP (even Ocz posts info on its web site about this; trial and error).

I just spent about 15 minutes with Google and didn't come up with any problems for the Transcend or the OCZ.

Got some links?

I assume you want a USB SSD for data security or power conservation reasons. Any performance advantages over a HDD are lost in the USB bottleneck.

The only issues I'm aware of with the OCZ Core (and other Jmicron-based MLC SSDs) is the stuttering from buffer overrun issues with small files. This shouldn't be a problem if the SSD is being used externally for storage.
