Visiontek offers more pocket-sized USB SSDs
Visiontek’s USB 3.0 Pocket SSD line has had major success ever since it was released to market and this is the reason why the famous maker of various upgrades and accessories for PCs and Mac computers has announced an expansion of the line. The expansion includes three new models that feature 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB of storage capacity.
“Launching the VisionTek USB 3.0 Pocket SSD in full-capacity versions was a high priority for us,” said Mark Bilson, Executive Vice President of VisionTek. “We opted to expand the line fully, offering 128GB and 256GB, and adding a 512GB version as well, allowing for customers who have larger storage capacity needs to take full advantage of this fantastic, portable form factor.”
The USB 3.0 Pocket SSD line targets IT professionals, power users, creative professionals and gamers who seek ultra fast transfers of large files on a device that is as small as a USB flash drive. This is exactly what Visiontek offers to users around the world – the USB 3.0 Pocket SSD line sports a sleek, portable design and ultra fast read/write speeds as well as large capacities. These SSDs can be used with any Windows, Mac OS X or Linux-based system with a USB 2.0/3.0 port and plug into such a port to save or share work files, movies, music and more.
The Visiontek USB 3.0 Pocket SSD line features SSDs that are housed inside aluminum chassis. They use a multi-chip design and employ high endurance MLC NAND flash memory that delivers a consistent read and write speeds of 450 MB/sec and 155 MB/sec, respectively, which makes these USB flash drive-sized SSDs 20 times faster than standard USB 2.0 flash drives or external hard drives.
The new USB 3.0 Pocket SSDs are made in the USA and will be on the market later this month. The 128 GB model will sell for USD 89.99, while the 256 GB and 512 GB models will cost USD 149.99 and USD 279.99, respectively.
