VisionTek presents pocket-sized USB 3.0 SSD

VisionTek Products LLC has presented a new rather peculiar product called VisionTek USB Pocket SSD. As the name of the device suggests, this is a thumb-sized solid state drive with a USB connector, designed for use by IT power users, creative professionals and performance enthusiasts who work with large files and need high speed data transfers. The new drive is compatible with all Windows, Mac OS X and Linux computers who have a USB 3.0/USB 2.0 connector.

The VisionTek USB Pocket SSD comes housed in an aviation-grade aluminum chassis and offers a fully functional SSD inside. The SSD uses a LSI SandForce controller that delivers up to 455 MB/sec of read speed and up to 440 MB/sec of write speed through the integrated USB 3.0 connector. Provided that you install Windows 8/Windows 8.1 on the drive, you can use it as a bootable and fully functional Windows environment when needed.

The drive is available in two versions – the 120 GB model sells for USD 109.99, while the 240 GB model costs USD 174.99. The VisionTek USB Pocket SSD is now available directly from VisionTek or other major online retailers that include Dell, Newegg and Tiger Direct.
