What is the benefit of using an SSD as portable storage?
If you are looking for a portable drive that you can use for quick file transfer, this SSD (Manufacturer’s Code: SDSSDEXT-240G-G25) would be a great choice for you. 240GB of storage provides you with the ability to store thousands of uncompressed RAW (24 bits per pixel) images, making this ideal for photographers and videographers.

Transferring big media files isn’t a problem for this SSD, as it boasts transfer speeds of 415MB/s (read) and 304MB/s (write). This is up to four times quicker than traditional hard drives, allowing you to spend more time taking the perfect shot and less time waiting for files to be transferred. There are no moving parts to break inside this SSD, making it more durable than most hard drives.

Why is this SSD labelled ‘extreme’?
The SanDisk Extreme 500 240GB portable SSD is remarkably robust drive. It is shock resistant up to 800G (at 0.5m/sec) and vibration resistant (5.35 gRMS, 20 to 2000 HZ). It can be stored in temperatures of between -20°C to 70°C, making it usable even in extreme climates. You can attach this SSD to your bag using the loop hole at the top of the device, so you needn’t to worry about it getting damaged while you’re on the move. SanDisk Secure Access can be set up, creating a password protected (128-bit AES encrypted) folder on your SSD so you can keep files protected from prying eyes.

The fantastic thing about this portable SSD is that it works with both PC and Mac computers (Mac OS 10.4 or older), with no needs for drivers at all. This makes it really easy to use, so you can start moving your files straight away.
