Dall’austriaca Angelbird Technologies arriva, anche in Italia, SSD2GO PKT un SSD esterno che fa dell’unione tra qualità, performance e resistenza i suoi punti di forza. Questo disco esterno infatti promette di essere “virtualmente indistruttibile”.

Angelbird ha infatti fornito di protezione ad acqua e polvere il suo SSD2GO PKT che, stando alle dichiarazioni dell’azienda, resiste a temperature tra i -40°C e gli 85°C e a shock di grande entità, “come quello di un camion che ci passa sopra” (noi comunque ve lo sconsigliamo). Anche la porta USB Type C promette incredibile durabilità grazie al fatto che il connettore si infila in uno slot che lo tiene fermo.

Neanche dal punto di vista di performance l’SSD2GO PKT, almeno sulla carta, non se la cava male: 68.000 IOPS con velocità fino a 560 MB/s su connessione USB 3.1 (è comunque fornito anche un cavo USB classico). Come avrete capito non è certo un prodotto nella media.

La cosa la si capisce anche dal prezzo, infatti per un SSD2GO PKT si parte, sul sito ufficiale, da 200€ per il modello da 256 GB fino ai 350€ di quello da 512 GB (presto arriverà anche da 1 TB). Alto se confrontato con altri SSD esterni, ma comunque ragionevole se si pensa che i nostri dati debbano essere al sicuro ma comunque accessibili al volo.

Angelbird SSD2GO PKT – The virtually indestructible SSD drive!

Press Release

Lustenau on June 29, 2016 – Angelbird Technologies has announced that its latest portable SSD drive, the SSD2GO PKT, is now available worldwide. The award-winning drive was designed to be extremely portable and almost indestructible, while still offering incredible operating speeds and unique features.

“The Angelbird PKT is a life saver and game changer for any photographer that has to deal with huge amounts of raw data while travelling abroad,” says photographer and film maker Gunther Wegner.

Virtually indestructible!

The Angelbird SSD2GO PKT is made to be the most durable drive of its kind. Besides being equipped with high-quality dust and splash water protection, the SSD2GO PKT can withstand temperatures of up to -40°C (-40°F) and +85°C (+185°F).

In order to protect the internal parts of the SSD drive from shock damages, the casing can support immense forces, such as the weight of a truck rolling over it. Additionally, the included cables connect to the SSD2GO PKT via the unique Solid Connect™, which protects the cable’s connector and aims to prevent fractures at the receptacle and the cable plug.

Small, proud and always by your side!

Even though the SSD2GO PKT is almost indestructible, it weighs merely 50 grams (~1.76 oz). Designed for portability, the drive is only 9.5 mm thick (~0.37 in) and fits perfectly in most pockets. It is roughly the size of a box of matches.

Incredibly fast!

The SSD2GO PKT can perform at 68,000 IOPS and speeds of up to 560MB/s, making the user’s files accessible within 0.5 ms. Angelbird’s TRIM 2 GO™ and Stable Stream™ technology additionally ensures that the drive’s performance constantly stays fresh and at a stable level. This is of importance when editing, recording and working with files stored on the SSD2GO PKT.
