Western Digital (WD), a major player in the flash storage market has today introduced its palm-sized SSDs. These come with NVMe technology and in multiple storage configurations going all the way up to 2TB. They vaunt increased speeds and efficiency within a sleek and portable guise.
Let’s have a look at their specs and other details.
Western Digital NVMe SSDs: Highlights
These WD SSDs feature a bold metal design. Thanks to their compact size, they should snug easily inside your backpack or pocket. So, they boast high-speed storage on the move.
Due to the underlying NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) technology, these can touch read speeds up to 1050MB/s and write speeds of up to 1000MB/s. They are compatible with USB 3.2 Gen-2 technology with a USB-C cable and a USB-A adaptor. Speaking of compatibility, they work with both Mac and PC.
Coming to the security side of things, you are getting 256-bit AES encryption for the inner data. This along with shock plus vibration plus drop resistance up to 6.5ft (1.98 meters) should allay your data safety woes. Still, if you have such anxiety, the built-in software for cloud-backup should come in handy.
As icing on the cake, WD assures a 5-year limited warranty.
