The External Ssd Offer Continues to Grow


After having dislodged hard disks from many terminals (except the iMac), Flash memory has found a new growth relay: external storage media. The continuous (or almost continuous) decrease of the flash memory helps, it is the turn of the small external hard drive to be threatened.

The offer in external SSDs is more and more varied every day. The French manufacturer Bleu Jour has recently launched the eSSD, a compact SSD (PCIe NvMe) storage medium that connects to your computer using a USB-C cable.

Guaranteed for 5 years, it is available in several colours and in capacities ranging from 256 GB (135 €) to 2 TB (389 €).

Another recent release in this segment is Emtec’s new X200 portable range. Lighter than the model presented previously (38 grams versus 60 grams), this range of external SSDs offers data rates of up to 450 MB/s for reading and 420 MB/s for writing.

Several capacities are available for sale:

  • 128 GB (45 €)
  • 256 GB (67 €)
  • 512 GB (90 €)
  • 1To (145 €).

It has a USB-C 3.1 interface and comes with a USB-C to USB-A cable.
