ADATA is announcing the SD700 durable external SSD, representing the first time that a 3D NAND SSD has achieved the IEC IP68 dust and waterproof specifications compliance, as well as military-grade shock resistance. The SD700 utilizes a USB 3.1 Gen 1 interface, allowing it to connect to Windows, Android and Mac OS devices. The USB 3.1 Gen 1 connection enables data transfer speeds of up to 440MB/s for both read and write operations.
ADATA has designed and tested the SD700 to meet IEC IP68 standards. To achieve this, the SD700 is completely dust-tight to prevent particulate intrusion, as well as maintaining normal operation even after being submerged for 60 minutes in 1.5m of water. Even with its tough enclosure, the SD700 weighs only 100g.
ADATA has also engineered into the SD700 compliance with the popular US Army MIL-STD-810G516.6 specifications for drop and shock resistance to achieve a high degree of shock proofing. Its tough protective enclosure and lack of moving parts creates a very survivable storage device even for extreme activities.
ADATA, like a number of other SSD producers, is transitioning more and more of their product lines to using 3D NAND to take advantage of its increased performance, greater reliability and power efficiency. The SD700 is being offered in capacity points of 256GB, 512GB and 1TB, all at competitive price points.
The SD700’s USB 3.1 Gen 1 connection creates throughput that is easily able to handle 4K content without lag or buffering. The SD700 is plug-and-play compatible with Windows, Mac OS, and Android devices. ADATA is backing the SD700 to the tune of a three-year limited warranty. It is being offered in two color schemes – black/black or yellow/black.
