How does this differ from a standard portable hard drive?
The Maplin portable SSD has no moving parts, allowing for a much faster data transfer rate than a traditional mechanical hard drive or a USB flash drive. SSDs also have no moving parts which gives them a much lower failure rate, meaning your data will be safer for longer. The Maplin Portable SSD gives you a reliable hard drive that is lightweight, easy to use and perfect for carrying your favourite pictures, music and movies with you.

How much can I store on this drive?
This hard drive has 512GB of storage, so you have plenty of space for your files. It is possible to store 28,800 images taken at 10 megapixel resolution, 1280 minutes of HD (1080p) video, 32,000 MP3 songs and still have enough room for 128GB of office files.

Will USB 3.0 work with my computer?
USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1. This means you can use your drive with almost any computer, some newer TVs and even some soundbars. This versatile device allows you to transfer files, watch films on your television and play your favourite tunes at full blast.
