Today SanDisk unveiled a few products for 2016, among them are a new client SSD and a rugged waterproof external drive. Their client product, the X400, is the first single-sided 1TB SATA M.2 form factor SSD that measures in at a mere 1.5mm height. This makes it the world’s thinnest 1TB SSD to date! It has been developed for fast start-up and application launch, as well as for extended battery life in OEM systems by companies such as Dell, HP, etc.
Both consumer and enterprise PC users can expect exceptional reliability even with heavy use. The 256GB X400 is rated to operate for more than 5 years with a workload of approximately 40GB/day. This performance makes the X400 SSD an optimal solution for enterprise or other OEM customers who need a highly reliable solution for systems that are broadly deployed in the field, such as digital signage, networking gear, point of sale (POS), and commercial PCs.
The X400 achieves increased reliability and endurance by implementing SanDisk’s own nCache 2.0 technology and DataGuard technology as well as additional error correction mechanisms. Based on SanDisk’s 6th generation X3 Technology, the SanDisk X400 SSD uses 90% less power than a traditional hard disk drive. In addition, the X400 SSD offers data protection through AES 256-bit compliant encryption and TCG Opal 2.0 compatibility, targeting users in the healthcare, financial services and education sectors who need to be compliant with industry regulations.
The SanDisk X400 SSD is currently available in 2.5’’ cased and M.2 2280 form factors at 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB capacities. For more information about the new SanDisk X400 SSD, please visit the product page here.
As we mentioned earlier, SanDisk has also expanded its portable SSD lineup with a new all-terrain SSD, the Extreme 510 Portable SSD. Designed for photographers and videographers who need a reliable and super-fast storage solution, the SanDisk Extreme 510 Portable SSD delivers whether on location or in the studio.
The SanDisk Extreme 510 Portable SSD builds on the compact design of the SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD to offer ultimate portability and provide greater protection for users who want to take their storage on-the-go. With its rubber bumper and IP55-rating for water and dust resistance, the SanDisk Extreme 510 Portable SSD stands up to hazards such as rain, spills and rough, dusty trails, while also cushioning against falls. In a pocket-sized design, the SanDisk Extreme 510 drive delivers performance with transfer speeds up to 430MB/s to quickly access massive video files or photo libraries – outperforming a traditional external hard drive with speeds of up to four times faster. Available in 480GB capacity, this all-terrain drive offers high-speed storage for anyone looking for a fast, reliable storage solution that battles the elements.
The new SanDisk Extreme 510 Portable SSD also features SanDisk SecureAccess software with 128-bit encryption to secure files. At this time there will only be a 480GB capacity featuring a two-year warranty and is available worldwide at an MSRP of $249.99.
