SanDisk, a storage expert in their own right, are now owned by Western Digital, allowing the two companies to merge their expertise to produce better products for their customers.
Last year SanDisk brought to market the Extreme Portable SSD, boasting access speeds in excess of 500MB/s and capacities up to 2TB. Today we look at the evolution of that, the Extreme Pro Portable SSD. The Pro portion of the name relates to the upgraded controller and NAND flash that’s capable of up to 1050MB/s across a USB 3.1 Gen. 2 (10Gbps) connection.
The SanDisk Extreme Pro Portable SSD is a rugged, pocket-friendly, flash-based storage drive available in 500GB, 1TB and 2TB capacities. The forged aluminium body helps to dissipate heat and protect the data inside, while the durable silicon rubber coating offers better drop protection and the IP55 dust and water resistance means you can take this almost anywhere, safely.
Thanks to 25 years of SanDisk experience, they’re happy to offer a 5-year warranty with your portable SSD, giving you a great deal of peace of mind. Pricing is somewhat higher than the previous model, making the additional speed a premium option.
