The Crucial X8 1TB Portable SSD is a  solid-state drive (SSD)  which is a new generation of a storage device. SSDs replace traditional mechanical hard disks by using flash-based memory, which gives significantly faster speed and reliability.  This unit is solid which as per the manufactures has been tested with a 7.5-foot drop and tested against extreme temperatures, shock, vibration.


The Portable SSD is fast with read speeds up to 1050MB/s, this would mean load files up to 1.8x faster than most portable SSDs, 7.5x faster than portable hard drives, and 100x faster than USB flash drives.

The Brand:

Crucial has been around for over 40 years involved in memory and storage, I have used many of their RAM options over the last 20 years which have worked seamlessly.



The unit comes with a 3-year warranty.



The unit as expected from the SSD is fast, with the cable supplied works with most USB-C and USB-A devices.  This worked with an android phone easily and with speed, and transferred to a Laptop without any issues, ( This is Compatible with a wide range of devices. with Windows, Mac, iPad Pro, Chromebook, Android, Linux, PS4, and Xbox. ) The Build quality is solid and small enough to fit in a pocket if required.  The speed is great to suit most gamers, and elegant enough to be used in an office.
