For a long time, the most rugged external hard drives were made by Lacie. The brand’s orange, rubbery devices were considered just about the best there were. Now, legacy hard drive brand SanDisk is gunning for that spot with their SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD.
Built to travel with you anywhere, this external hard drive features a shock-resistant core, a water and dust resistant IP55 rating, and a loop for attaching to a bag. Want to keep your data a bit more secure? The hard drive can just as easily fit in your pocket. But more than just being tough, the external hard drive can transfer data at speeds of up to 550MB, and store either 250, 500 GB, or 1 TB worth of files and images. Not bad for a pocket-sized external hard drive.
