SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD is Great for Photographers and Video Creators Who Are Always On The Go!

If you're a content creator of any kind - be it as a photographer, videographer, blogger, vlogger, or a Youtube partner, I'm sure you understand the importance of having a reliable mobile storage device that can keep up with you and meet your needs.

Most of us still use portable hard-drives with spinning parts inside that be quite clunky or rather slow in writing and reading files.

For those who are now ready to make an upgrade to a lighter, more compact, more durable, and faster portable storage device, here's one that I'm greatly inclined to recommend: The SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD

Packaging and Box Content

The product ships in this sleek black box with accents in red, white, and gold, which are the corporate hues of SanDisk.

An image of SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD is printed on the cover while the device's key features and main selling points are neatly listed at the back.

The official retail package includes the SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD unit itself, the User Manual, and the USB 3.2 Gen-2 Type C cable with USB 3.0 adapter.

SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD's footprint is as small as a debit card and it is slimmer than a finger. This makes it highly pocketable and very easy to slip in a bag or purse. The product even has a hole on top where you can put a carabiner to attach it to your camera bag or even your belt strap.

Despite being very small, though, SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD feels tough and robust with its perforated ABS plastic front panel and polycarbonate backplate with matte or rubberized finish that minimizes accidental slips by increasing skin traction when holding the device.

Dust and Water Resistance

SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD is IP55 Certified, which means that it is protected against dust as well as low-pressure jets of water from any direction with a hose having a 6.3-millimeter nozzle.

In everyday use, this means that dust won't easily get inside the product to damage its internal parts and it can definitely survive accidental splashes of water.

According to our friends from SanDisk, this product has a rugged silicone enclosure that allows it to survive drops from a height of two meters.

This means that if you accidentally drop the SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD while you're holding it standing up, it should survive and still work well, provided you are not taller than 6'5.

Maximum Write and Read Speeds

As a growing Youtuber and aspiring photographer, one of the favorite things about SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD is that it supports ultra-fast write and read speeds up to 1Gbps when connected to a USB 3.2 Gen-2 port.

With this feature, I don't have to wait too long when transferring very large photos, 4K videos, or FullHD clips with high-bitrate. This saves me time and allows me to complete projects faster.

Is this the right portable SSD for you?

If you're an amateur or a professional content creator who travels a lot or does gigs out-of-town often and in challenging environments, I think the SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD is a must-have.

Not only is it light, durable, splash-proof, and very portable but it's also reliable and it supports blazing fast file transfer speeds. Additionally, since it is SSD, it doesn't have many moving parts so you don't have to worry that it might be broken with constant movement or shaking as it travels with you through rugged terrains, across the seas, or on multiple flights.

I trust SanDisk!

To wrap up, I just want to say that I greatly trust SanDisk as a maker of storage devices and accessories because they have sheer focus and unquestionable experience in this product category. They know what they are doing -- and of course, it doesn't hurt that they offer 5-years warranty on most products that they offer, including the SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD.
