Kogan 120GB Waterproof Portable SSD

A WATER-TIGHT SSD OFFERING.

-

SEAGATE DITCHED THE bulky shell of its Seven portable HDD a few years back, opting to use a thin metal case that hugged the hardware for a 7mm profile. Kogan’s 120GB Waterproof Portable SSD continues this trend with the first external SSD that’s as thin as the adapter plate that inserts in a USB Type A connection (or about the thickness of 30 pages of the print version of this magazine). It also occupies a footprint no bigger than a Tile bluetooth tracker with the accompanyi­ng USB 3.1 male-A to female-A connection being more bulky than the drive itself. While it’s pretty much just the paint protecting it, you can actually see the contours of the flash drive’s underlying architectu­re, the white hydrophobi­c coating seems to provide ample resistance for flash memory. The Waterproof Portable SSD is middle of the road in terms of speed with Sequential Q32T1 read speeds of 319.9MB/s and write speeds of 207.1 on CrystalDis­kMark 5. It might not be the fastest portable drive available but with an RRP of $99, it is hard to beat for value.
