Photographers and videographers will know the pain of moving large projects between their computer and external storage. Every second wasted waiting for your transfer to complete not only feels like an age, but it is also time not spent moving the project forward. The Plugable SSDs utilize both Thunderbolt 3 and NVMe technologies to offer rapid speeds of up to 2800 MB/sec read and 1800 MB/sec write without needing to be connected to an external power source, making it a great choice for taking on the go. You can store plenty on the drives, too. For example, the 1TB drive is capable of storing 155 minutes of ProRes 422 HQ 4K video or 175 minutes of DnXHR HQ 4K video. Each drive has a sturdy aluminum body that protects the drive and also helps to dissipate heat. Plugable backs your purchase with a 3-year warranty, too.

The Plugable drives are pre-formatted with exFAT right out of the box to make them compatible and interchangeable with any Thunderbolt 3-enabled Mac or Windows system. It's worth noting that the drives do not support non-Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports.
