Silicon Power launches their thinnest-ever portable SSD - the PC60

Silicon Power's PC60 portable SSD.

Folks with a mobile work setup would understand how important it is to maximise the space and weight of your portable accessories and peripherals - every gram and every centimetre shaved off counts towards the total baggage you'd have to haul from gig to gig. With that understanding, Silicon Power decided to launch its thinnest-ever portable SSD - the PC60.

The PC60 is a palm-sized (80mm), square-shaped portable SSD that's just 11mm in thickness. That's slimmer than two typical flagship smartphones stacked together. Despite its profile, the PC60 still packs all the key specs you'd want on a proper portable SSD. The 2TB storage device (holds up to 1.92TB) can transfer data at up to 10Gbps with USB 3.2 Gen 2 support, it uses a Type-C USB port, and has a read and write speed of 540MB/s and 500MB/s respectively. It's a pretty good effort at striking the right balance between performance and design.

So thin, even a carabiner hook fits.

To sweeten the deal, the PC60 uses a shock-resistant structure with a slightly rugged look, and it has a keyhole for secure attachment to keychains or bags. That makes the portable SSD a little more convenient for most.

The PC60's retail price is subjected to distributor fees and retailer preferences. Here are the estimated retail prices for different versions available (subject to changes):

  • 240GB: US$56.50 (~S$80.62)
  • 480GB: US$103 (~S$146.98)
  • 960GB: US$185 (~S$263.99)
  • 1.92TB: TBC
