Who said external storage had to be boring? If you want to kick around with a high-speed SSD in a cool-looking enclosure, ADATA has you covered. The new XPG SX950 solid state drive comes in a range of capacities and you can suitably stash it in the gamer-inspired EX500 drive enclosure for a wicked new look.
Of course, the XPG SX950 can slot directly into your notebook (or desktop) if you prefer too. Under the hood is 3D MLC NAND, driven by an SMI controller and a custom ADATA PCB. The goal here is to ensure the drive will survive prolonged high demand without skipping a beat, offering speeds up to 560MB/s read and 530MB/s write.
On the external storage front, there's the accompanying EX500 drive enclosure. The red and black enclosure has a textured surface and an aggressive look. It's also super durable and connects via USB 3.1. The enclosure is $24.99, while the XPG SX950 is $139.99, $249.99 and $449.99 for 240GB, 480GB and 960GB, respectively.
