Verbatim’s latest Vx500 SSD gives you 480GB of high speed storage in your pocket

Dubbed a “ultra-high-speed” external SSD by Verbatim, the new Vx500 is a compact gum-sized external drive that features USB 3.1 Gen 2 connectivity for handling large data transfers quickly. It measures just 92 x 29 x 9mm and weighs just 29g, so you can just pop into your pocket and go.

It gives you up to 500MB/s read and up to 440 MB/s write, and is housed in a space grey graphite aluminum housing for better protection. Both USB-C and USB-A cables have been provided, and the drive has Plug and play functionality so you won’t need to install drivers for a large number of devices; just plug and go!  Thanks to the low power consumption of the drive won’t drain too much of your laptop’s battery, and thus is ideal for using on the go.

The Vx500 is available now in 240GB and 480GB capacities at all Challenger and POPULAR.

Data Transfer performance is as such:

  • 240GB (P/N 47442): 500MB/sec read; 430MB/sec write
  • 480GB (P/N 47443): 500MB/sec read; 440MB/sec write

The 240GB retails for S$159 while the 480GB can be had for S$269.
