We know how hard it can be to get the right external storage. There are so many formats, options and sizes. If what you want is speed an portability, though, you will find there is not much better than Sandisk’s new Extreme SSD drives.
We took a look at a couple while roaming the Computex 2015 halls. These are the Sandisk Extreme 500 SSD and the Sandisk Extreme 900 SSD. These happen to be super awesome, so let’s take a closer look at them and show you what they are all about.
Sandisk Extreme 500 SSD
This little guy comes in three versions, varying in storage capacity. You can get it with 120 GB, 240 GB or 480 GB of internal storage. They also happen to be incredibly much faster than your average external HDD drives. This thing can read at 415 MB/s, while writing speeds average at about 340 MB/s.
You will also love that this thing is tiny. You can literally throw it in your pocket without a single hassle. I kind of love it, to be honest. And it really has enough capacity to become a main storage device. The rugged-like body should keep your files secure when you are taking it through some rough handling, too.
If you are interested, you can get it for $100, $150 and $250 for the 120 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB versions, accordingly.
Sandisk Extreme 900 SSD
This bad boy is pretty much the Cadillac of external drives. It is elegant, fast, good looking and comes with very good storage capacities. To be exact, you can get it in 480 GB, 960 GB or 1.92 TB configurations.
By the way, this thing is blazing fast. Like… stupid fast. It can both read and write at 850 MB/s. To put that into perspective, that would be about 9 times faster than your usual external hard drives.
The device is also very well built. It uses plastic and metal, making for a sturdy build quality and a design that is very hard to match. Oh, and just in case you are into that sort of thing, this does support USB-C.
The 960 GB version will be priced at $599. A bit high for most users, but those who need the speed and portability will not even think twice about paying that cash.
