Toshiba Memory Europe introduces XS700 series of portable SSDs

Toshiba Memory Europe (TME) has launched its XS700 Series of portable solid state drives (SSDs).

Working with large media files such as 4K video and high-resolution images typically requires more speed than a portable hard drive can provide. The XS700 is designed to be a faster, more durable alternative. TME says it is able to reach speeds of up to 4.5 times faster than traditional spinning disk storage.

The device is built with Toshiba Memory Corporation’s in-house 3D flash memory, 64-layer BiCS FLASH and includes USB 3.1 Gen 2 support and “the latest” USB Type-C connector.

The XS700 is designed with durability in mind, featuring no moving parts. The drive is covered in aluminium, is shock-proof and has been drop-test certified at a height of two meters. Other security-focused features include a utility that enables users to password-protect their drives and conduct maintenance, monitoring and additional tuning.
