Apacer launches portable SSD

The popular memory and digital storage maker Apacer has launched a new portable solid-state drive known as AS710. The device has been designed to easily carry information around but despite its portability it does not come with cut-down hardware specs.

The Apacer AS710 fully supports SATA 3.0 and USB 3.0 and comes with the Windows-To-Go function. The compact chassis of the device (7 mm thick, 75 grams of weight) also sports enhanced protection that fights dirt, vibrations and shock. As to speed the AS710 reaches read speed of 550 MB/sec and write speed of 530 MB/sec through the SATA 3.0 interface, while the USB 3.0 port provides read/write speed of 380/420 MB/sec. The drive offers capacity of 128 GB too.

Although portable the Apacer AS710 comes with a full set of SSD technologies such as advanced wear leveling, error correction code and support for the Windows 7 TRIM command so you can be assured that along with its protection the AS710 will last a really long time.

The pricing of the device was not disclosed.
