Solid state drives are widely used today as client storage for our PCs, but they also show their advantages for external storage as they combine their high performance with total mobility. Not only are they much smaller than mechanical hard drives, but they consume less power, are lightning fast, and offer consumers and professionals data backups on the fly or all possibilities as a bootable drive to run / install operating systems or applications, as we have seen in the analysis of some models.
The unit that occupies us that comes from the flash memory subsidiary of Kingston Technology is a good sample. It has a minimum size of 69.54 x 32.58 x 13.5 mm and a weight of 28 grams.
