SanDisk Professional G-Drive SSD: Lightning Fast, rugged and secure portable SSD

Sean Webster of Tom's Hardware recently reviewed the SanDisk Professional G-Drive SSD and rated it 4 stars! The G-DRIVE SSD is available in 500B, 1TB, 2TB and 4TB and features IP67 water-and dust-resistance, 3-meter drop protection, and a 1000 lb crushproof rating. Transfer speeds up to 560MB/s let you quickly save, edit and archive large source files, while a versatile USB-C™port with a USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface keeps this device ready for laptops both old and new. 

Check out some highlights from Webster's review. 

"With a 10 Gbps interface and a WD Blue SN550E powering it from within, the G-Drive SSD promises responsive performance and reliability. Not only that, but it is also IP67 water/dust resistant, can easily handle a 3-meter drop and comes with a 2,000-pound crush-resistance rating. Also on board is hardware encryption for added security. With a design and feature set like this, the SanDisk Professional G-Drive SSD looks to impress. Let's dig deeper to find out if it's truly one of the best."


"Unlike internal SSDs, this portable SSD comes without endurance ratings limiting its five-year warranty. It features solid LDPC ECC memory and comes overprovisioned from the factory by 9.9% for enhanced reliability, though. And, as we mentioned earlier, it also has support for password-enabled 256-bit AES-XTS hardware encryption, to keep your data safe from prying eyes in the case of theft or loss."


"The G-Drive SSD is not only good for a professional workflow, but it’s also good for play, too. The SanDisk Professional G-Drive SSD delivered solid game load results having scored within roughly half a second of the fastest competitor and one and a half seconds faster than the LaCie Rugged SSD"


"For professionals who want top-tier durability and reliable, reasonably fast performance, the SanDisk Professional G-Drive SSD is worthy of consideration. It was designed with a focus on performance and reliability, both in the office and wherever else you might roam. As such, it should give users a sense of peace of mind knowing that no matter what life throws at them, their storage should hold up and suit their needs."
