Plextor, the world's leading brand in high-performance digital storage devices today announces its new generation lightweight, slim, and high-speed external solid state drives (SSD) - The Plextor EX1. Built with extreme speeds in mind, we have integrated the latest industry-leading USB Type-C connector with the powerful Plextor high-performance SSD core to provide exceptional data reading/writing speeds; fully enhancing the performance of external storage devices, especially for large-capacity file transfer and backup. Data loss and overheating are some of the known issues to external hard drives with moving mechanical parts, and EX1 is exquisitely designed to be shock-proof, quiet during operation, lightweight, and portable. It also supports mobile storage on Android devices via OTG.
The speed bottleneck of external storage devices will no longer affect the overall performance of your system. With specifications and design that focuses on speed, the Plextor EX1 is equipped with Plextor's renowned high-performance SSD core, the EX1 offers amazing 550/500 MB/s continuous read/write speeds, respectively, providing data transfer efficiency that is unheard of in traditional flash drives or external hard drives. The EX1’s USB Type-C interface also supports the USB 3.1 Gen 2 standard that is capable of transfer speed up to 10-times faster than the USB 2.0 standard.
The EX1's unprecedented data transfer performance allows the external storage to perform at speeds comparable to those of internal devices, which greatly benefits users of ultra-slim laptops and mobile devices as they can instantly expand their storage capacity to run applications or access data directly from the EX1. Tasks such as copying, transferring, or backing up large files, playing/editing ultra-high-definition video clips, or the post-production of high-resolution photos can be done instantaneously at these unprecedented speeds. Users can even launch operating systems and complete databases from the EX1 to streamline their efficiency in terms of both work and play.
Weighing only 30 grams, the slim and lightweight EX1 is almost as compact as a conventional flash drive. The simple and elegant curved design of the EX1's exterior is available in gold and titanium silver. The package comes with a Type-C to Type-A USB adapter cable, as well as a carrying pouch, which perfectly complement any smartphone, tablet, or laptop to create a mobile storage solution that offers the most professional and stylish experience.
The EX1 will be available in three different capacities (128 / 256 / 512 GB) to choose from, and the entire series comes with a 5-year limited warranty from Plextor.
