Nokia mobile drives SanDisk Will allow you to move a lot of information with you, and up to 850 megabytes per second
Remember the Samsung's fast and portable T1 drive from the beginning of the year? Well, it took some time, but now it has significant competition from another well-known manufacturer in the storage world - SanDisk.
The American company has announced a series of new mobile SSDs that, like Samsung's product, are designed to offer the highest speeds of the best flash memories in a compact and beautiful package that you can take and connect to any computer you meet on the way. Or in short - with a simple USB flash drive Not fast and not big enough for you.
The Extreme 500 Portable is the basic model to be offered in 120GB and 240GB volumes and in a compact, unique, Performence So-so with maximum continuous read and write speeds of 415 megabytes per second and 340 megabytes per second respectively.
More interesting models will be the Extreme 900 Portable, which will be characterized by a more traditional design and larger dimensions but will be available in extremely high volumes of 960GB, 480GB and even 1.92TB. In addition, based on connections USB 3.1 Type C And the USB 3.1 Type A (the largest and standard we already know) and any controller that is not limited to the SATA 3 interface allows the Extreme 900 Portable drives to offer maximum read and write speeds of no less than 850 megabytes per second - thus surpassing the competitor of סמסונג, At least in one parameter.
SanDisk did not mention random read and write performance for any of the mobile drives, which makes us suspect that this performance is not too high (Again, roughly like the Samsung T1) - although we are pretty sure they are still several times higher than those of USB flash drives The most advanced Which can be found on the market right now.
The prices will not be very competitive compared to theSSD Which are more common, with 100, 150, and 240 for the 120GB, 240GB, and 480GB versions of the XNUMXGB,Extreme 500, respectively, and the cost of 400, 600,Extreme 900 Portable in compatible volumes of 480GB, 960GB, and 1.92TB. Worth the investment? It depends mainly on your relationship with the good old finger drives.
Are the mobile drives mentioned in the previous paragraphs not yet compact enough for you? No problem - as a bonus, the manufacturer also introduced USB drives Mobile New Ultra Fit series, with a peak volume of 128GB.
The speeds here certainly will not drop any of the chair, as befits a product that is barely larger than the standard USB Type A connection it includes (although the company's stated maximum is 130 megabits per second), but if you need a large amount of Information that will be available to you anytime, anywhere and do not rely on cloud technologies, is definitely a product that should interest you. The price? 120 dollars are not cheap at all for 128GB of volume storage.
Smaller than that you will not find - certainly not the volume of 128 gigabytes
