(SINGAPORE, 2 June 2015) – Sony is proud to introduce the first external solid-state drive(SSD) that is made for consumer use. This stylish, ultra-compact and ultra-high speed SSD is as small as a credit card, weighs at just 35g, and is only 9.4mm thick, allowing you to bring your data and files along with you wherever you go.
Featuring a stylish and durable metal body with anti-scratch hairline finish, the new external SSD is so aesthetically pleasing, it is bound to impress your friends and colleagues. Available in two different colours, cool silver and noble black, you’ll always want to flaunt it around, even when the device can be safely parked in your pocket.
Separately, busy people will also appreciate its lightning speed transfer rate of up to 450MB/s in reading mode, as well as USB3.0 compatibility, so you won’t have to wait long for your files to be completely transferred.
The new SSD comes with two storage capacities – 128GB and 256GB – giving you more than enough room to store and organise all your photos, videos, music, documents, and more. With added features such as Password Protection Manager, your precious files will always be safe and secure, even if the external drive falls into the wrong hands. Backup Manager, on the other hand, lets you backup data directly from your PC or laptop, saving you valuable time and making the process even easier to manage.
The SL-BG1 (128GB capacity) and SL-BG2 (256GB capacity) will be available at all Sony Stores and authorised outlets from July onwards, at a recommended retail price of S$199 and S$299, respectively.
