This Thursday (9), Kingston Technology announced the launch of the XS2000 portable SSD with USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 interface. The little one has a transfer speed of 2,000 MB/s and weighs 28.9 grams. Sales in Brazil are planned for the first quarter of 2022.
The device will be offered in three versions with different storage capacities. While the 500GB model costs US$99, about R$522 in direct conversion, the 1TB variant costs US$159.99 (about R$843). The more “stubby” model, 2 TB, has a suggested price of US$ 284.99 (R$ 1,503).
“In addition to the compact, keychain-like size, the increased durability makes the SSD ideal for maintaining user productivity, whether in everyday or corporate use,” said Keith Schimmenti, SSD Business Manager at Kingston.
With five years of free tech support, the little one also has a removable rubber boot and IP55 certified for protection from water and dust, but it must be clean before use.
