There are plenty of reasons that these portable drives from SanDisk are perfect for your creative needs, but perhaps the biggest reason is that they’re fast. Like, real fast. Fast enough to be able to keep your files on the SSD itself for things like photo editing, graphic design, and even video editing. With read speeds of up to a massive 1050MB/s* and write speeds of up to 1000MB/s*, you won’t run into slowdowns with a SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD.
The drives are designed to be incredibly portable too. Solid-state storage enabled smaller device size, and SanDisk has taken advantage of that. The SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD is smaller than most smartphones, meaning they’re easily pocketable. That makes them perfect for photographers or videographers on the go, who might want to buy a few drives to take on the road. Speaking of going on the road, the drives even offer a handy carabiner loop to make storing and carrying them easy.
No matter what storage amount you get, the drive remains incredibly portable -- and storage amounts range from 500GB to 4TB**. The drives connect to your computer through USB 3.2, with a built-in Type-C port that ensures the drive will be easier to connect to your newer computer. And, in case you don’t have USB-C ports, there’s a USB-C to USB-A adapter in the box. Other features include 256-bit AES encryption1 to help keep your files as safe as possible, and a massive 5-year limited warranty2.
Speaking of staying safe, if you’re a creative on the go, you might want something that’s more durable, and it’s no coincidence that these drives have the word “Extreme” in their name. SanDisk Extreme Portable SSDs are IP55 water and dust resistant3, and are built with a silicon shell that helps keep them safe and sound from bumps and scratches.
No matter what your creative medium, the SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD is worth considering. You can buy them for yourself straight from SanDisk’s website, starting at an impressive price of $119.99 (MSRP).
