Angelbird Technologies Introduces a Virtually Indestructible SSD Drive

Angelbird Technologies has announced the SSD2GO PKT portable SSD drive, an almost indestructible media storage drive offering high operating speeds for imagemakers working in tough field conditions.

Angelbird said the SSD2GO PKT was designed to be the most durable drive of its kind. Besides being equipped with high-quality dust and splash water protection, the drive can withstand temperatures ranging from -40 degrees to +185 degrees Fahrenheit.

The SSD2GO PKT can perform at 68,000 IOPS and speeds of up to 560MB/s, making the user’s files accessible within 0.5 ms. Angelbird’s TRIM 2 GO and Stable Stream technology additionally ensures that the drive’s perform constantly at a stable level. This is of importance when editing, recording and working with media files stored on the SSD2GO PKT.

“The Angelbird PKT is a life saver and game changer for any photographer that has to deal with huge amounts of raw data while travelling,” said Gunther Wegner, a photographer and film maker .

The Angelbird SSD2GO PKT is made to be the most durable drive of its kind with high-quality dust and splash water protection. In order to protect the internal parts of the SSD drive from shock damages, the casing can support immense forces, such as the weight of a truck rolling over it.

The included cables connect to the SSD2GO PKT via the unique Solid Connect, which protects the cable’s connector and aims to prevent fractures at the receptacle and the cable plug.

Even though the SSD2GO PKT is almost indestructible, it weighs only 1.76 ounces. Designed for portability, the drive is only 0.37 inches thick and fits in most pockets. It is roughly the size of a box of matches.

The drive is available with 256GB, 512GB or 1TB of storage and is compatible with USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C, 10Gb/s and backwards compatible. It has a three-year limited warranty and is compatible with Mac, Windows, Linux and Android. It includes TRIM, ECC, EMS, SMART and ESD overload protection.
