GOODRAM has introduced a new portable, external SSD hard drive. The HX100 is supposed to score with compact dimensions and convincing specifications at an attractive price.
Fast and light
The HX100 marks the second external SSD from the manufacturer GOODRAM and succeeds the previous HL100 model. The SSD increases significantly, especially in terms of speed: The TLC NAND flash memory reaches a maximum sequential read speed of 950 MB/s and offers a maximum write speed of 900 MB/s. The PCIe 3×4 interface is connected via a cable.
The PCIe 3×4 SSD is connected via USB 3.2 gen. 2, which enables transfer speeds of up to 10 Gb/s. GOODRAM packs all of this into an incredibly compact case that’s about the size of a bank card (92mm x 46mm x 9.2mm), making it perfect for travel.
The aluminum frame is shock resistant and therefore offers an increased level of security for data storage. In addition, the manufacturer equips the HX100 SSD with a 3-year warranty and offers free technical support.
It is available in three different sizes (256 GB, 512 GB and 1 terabyte), which also differ in terms of longevity in TBW (Total Bytes Written). The smallest model is said to have 170 TBW, whereas the medium one already has 330 TBW, while the 1 TB variant comes to 660 TBW.
Prices and availability
The GOODRAM HX100 SSDs are expected to make their way to retailers starting next week. The 256 GB version will start at an MSRP of around 70 Euros, while the top model with 1 TB of storage space will have an MSRP of 165 Euros.
