If you’re in the market for external storage that you can take with you on the go, there are plenty of options out there, and now it looks like we have one more thanks to LaCie unveiling its new portable USB-C SSD, which the company has billed as being fast, durable, and able to offer up reliable storage.
As its name implies, this is a USB-C SSD which means that it should play nicely with Apple’s recently-launched MacBook Air which features two USB-C ports. Given that the laptop can get pretty expensive when you furnish it with more storage, external storage solutions like this could be a slightly more affordable alternative to increasing your storage.
LaCie is boasting that its new USB-C SSD will be capable of 540MB/s read speeds and 500MB/s write speeds, and will be available in 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB options starting at $115, which is admittedly rather affordable when you think about it. LaCie claims that the SSD can be used as a scratch disc, where users will be able to edit directly off the drive instead of having to copy files over to the computer first.
It has also been pre-formatted in exFAT so that it should play nicely with Apple’s macOS and Microsoft’s Windows platform out of the box. There will also be a complimentary month of Adobe Creative Cloud All Apps plan, and a three-year Seagate Rescue Data Recovery Plan included as well.
