...the only consideration for would-be buyers is whether the advantages of solid-state technology warrant the premium.
The Seagate Fast SSD is one of the best portable drives on the market today. Available in capacities of up to 2TB, the sleek-looking device is small, light and capable of speeds in excess of 500MB/s when connected via forward-looking USB Type-C.
Creating a capable external SSD shouldn't be difficult, but Seagate has dotted the i's and crossed the t's. Outside of extreme ruggedness, Fast SSD offers just about everything we'd want from a portable drive, and the only consideration for would-be buyers is whether the advantages of solid-state technology warrant the premium. Hard disks remain the more affordable option, but once you've tasted the speed, silence and resilience of an SSD, there's no going back.
Bottom line: in the market for a sleek, quick and spacious portable drive? Seagate's Fast SSD ticks all of all those boxes.
