Small enough you won’t leave home without it

This stylish, high-capacity external SSD (Solid State Drive) is smaller than a credit card (A) and weighs just 50g (1.8 oz). Just put it in your pocket or bag, and you’ll have up to 960GB storage capacity with you all the time.

Wave surface for a better look and a better feel

The durable brushed aluminium finish resists fingerprints, while the wave surface also adds a unique sizzle to the product’s design. In addition to ensuring a secure grip for carrying, the wave pattern makes the drive easy to find by touch when you’re fishing around for it in your bag. Combined with thoughful design elements like the easy-to-see access LED, this is a drive that looks as good as it performs. 

USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface for speedy transfers

No need to wait around while your files get transferred. This external SSD is compatible with USB 3.1 Gen 2 (SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps) for ultra high-speed data transfer at a rate of up to 540MB/s (read) or 520MB/s (write). Get those files moving so you can get moving too.

960GB of storage capacity in a pocket-sized device

Keep all your precious files safe and secure with up to 960GB of storage – that’s enough room to store and organise your photos, videos, music, and more.

Durable and reliable for safe file storage

Solid-state drives utilise flash memory  with no moving parts inside. That increases the shockproof capability of the unit, and reduces the chance of a mechanical breakdown and precious data loss. Use it, and travel with it, with the peace of mind that your files will remain safe and secure.

The ideal tool for professional photography

The SL-E drive offers an excellent solution for digital photography professionals. The high capacity and ultra-fast connection to your PC, via the USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface, makes it the perfect partner for high-performance tethered shooting with cameras like the new Sony A7RIII. Data transfer speeds up to 540MB/s (read) and 520MB/s (write) provide for fast backups, quick checks and retouching of images, just like using a local drive, but the durable and compact body also offers unmatched portability.

Connect to a wide range of devices

The SL-E series is equipped with compact and reversible USB Type-C™ ports for connection with the latest devices. Supplied USB Type-C to C and USB Type-C to Standard-A cables ensure usability with a wide range of devices, including the latest Mac and Windows PCs, Android smartphones and tablets (USB Type-C), and conventional Mac and Windows PCs (USB Standard-A).
