ADATA has introduced two new external hard drives to their lineup: the Premier SC660 External SSD and the Premier HC660 External HDD.
The ADATA Premier SC660 is a 9.6mm in height external solid state drive that boasts 440MB/s read and write speed. It's compatible with Windows, Mac OS and even Android. Barely tipping the scale at a mere 80 grams, it will come in 240GB and 480GB capacities for some pretty epic portability.
Alongside the remarkably portable SC660, ADATA also announced the Premier HC660. Making use of the same external enclosure with the same height of 9.6m, the HDD-based HC660 will come in larger 1TB or 2TB capacities with a USB 3.0 interface.
Both the SC660 and HC660 have the same sandblaster metal design that is highly resistant to shock, chips and scratches. This would make for a very elegant and professional looking design to complete any portable or travel based setup. MSRPs as of this posting are $109.99 for the Premier SC660 240GB, $189.99 for the Premier SC660 480GB, $79.99 for the Premier HC660 1TB, and $119.99 for the Premier HC660 2TB. Those are all in USD. The full press release is below.

Taipei, Taiwan – Aug. 18, 2016 – ADATAR Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash products, today launched the Premier SC660 external solid state drive and Premier HC660 external hard drive. The two share a luxurious, sandblasted metal design that measures just 9.6mm in thickness.

Whether in SSD or hard drive form, the shared design of the SC660 and HC660 makes them highly attractive and practical storage products for users that want a combination of eye-catching style and portability.
A slice of speed and style: Premier SC660 external SSD
While just 9.6mm in height, the SC660 delivers high speed 440MB/s read and write performance to vastly boost data efficiency – an average full HD movie file at approx. 5GB takes just 26 seconds to transfer. Compatible with Windows, Mac OS, and Android, the SC660 is available in 240GB and 480GB versions, and works in plug n play with everything from desktops and notebooks to smartphones and game consoles. The SC660 weighs just 80g for complete ease of mobility. In addition to being shock resistant.
Robust luxury meets ample capacity: Premier HC660 external hard drive
The HC660 sets a new standard in external hard drive style and elegance, sharing the 9.6mm form factor of the SC660, which means it is roughly the same height as a bare 2.5” hard drive. This is quite an engineering feat considering most external hard drives are much thicker. Also compatible with Windows, Mac OS, and Android, the HC660 is offered in 1TB and 2TB models. Thanks to plug n play USB 3.0, users can simply connect the HC660 to a wide range of devices and gain access to extra storage with no complex setup.
