SanDisk’s Extreme Pro portable SSD: Workflow optimised!
October 17, 2019

It’s the moment most creative professionals have been waiting for, an NVMe-class external storage without a whole bunch of technical caveats. The Extreme Pro portable SSD uses its internally developed NVMe technology to saturate the USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface, with read speeds up to 1,050MB per second. That Gigabyte massive speed means users can edit video directly on the drive itself while on a shoot location, without the need for copying the file from the drive to a local hard drive, then back.

Combine that with the Extreme Pro portable SSD’d tough credentials, and you understand why this is much recommended for creative professionals on the go. Take the fact that the Extreme Pro is made out of a forged aluminum body to protect the SSD core and dissipate heat. On the outside is a rubber coating that protects the drive both from dirt as well as water, with an IP55 rating.

The Extreme Pro SSD works with PCs and Mac computers right out of the box and connects with USB Type C and Type A, making it easy to start and keep working in almost any situation. The device also ships with a USB-C to USB Type A cable for backwards compatibility.

The SanDisk Extreme Pro Portable SSD is currently available with the 500GB  variant, retailing at AED 599. The 1TB and 2TB variants will come to our part of the world in December.
