SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD

 

The SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD is a versatile solid-state drive that combines durability, fast performance, and value in a compact package.

Compatible with Mac and Windows out of the box. Comes with software that enables 128-bit AES encryption. Compact size. Shock and vibration resistant. Speedy performance. Good per-gigabyte price for an SSD.

Short, USB 3.0–only cord.

If you want a hardy, speedy SSD that fits into the palm of your hand and miraculously won't burn a hole in your wallet, the SanDisk Extreme 500 is a safe bet. It's not fully ruggedized, but it is shock and vibration resistant, and 128-bit encryption...

SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD Review

 

The SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD is a value-focused external flash-based product for those who need rugged high-speed storage while on the go.

The performance and price stand out, but we also found value in the software package that enables 128-bit encryption

I'm not sold on the advanced software features coming as a paid upgrade. If the software has the capability, then we feel SanDisk should include it as a value-add to make this series more attractive than the products coming from Samsung

Overall, we like the SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD and would buy one if needed. These products are not for everyone. Advanced thumb drives have increased in capacity and are smaller, but fail to deliver the same high transfer rates of data. The gap...

SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD (240GB) Review and Ratings

 

SanDisk's slim external SSD isn't the fastest we've tested, but it's not far off, and it's reasonably priced. Just know that if you need more than 480GB of speedy storage, you'll have to look elsewhere.

Swift performance at a reasonable price ; Durable-feeling plastic shell ; USB 3.0 cable is removable and replaceable

Capacity tops out at 480GB ; Textured-plastic top can collect dust and dirt ; Newer Extreme 510 model offers better shock- and water-resistance ; Competing Samsung T1 costs less

The SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD is the swift performer you'd expect; it's slim and compact enough for easy transport; and its rubber cap over the drive's port should provide some protection against the elements. Those likely to use their portable...

VERY Fast!!

 

I use this with my BootCamp Windows 10 install on my MacBook Pro to run GTA V off of (so that I don't have to dedicate an more space to the bootcamp partition). Honestly, the load times are almost as fast as if I was running it straight off the...

- small, sturdy, very fast SSD

- accompanying USB cable is a tad short (although it's so light, it can effectively dangle without issue)

Consumer review by: Joshua B. (newegg.com)

Amazingly small and Light.

 

Comes pre-formatted as exFAT. I had to re-format it to NTFS for my router to recognize it.

Fits in the palm of your hand and does everything it claims to do

None So far.
