There are some great external SSDs available at affordable prices, but unless you really need a ton of storage, buying one can be a waste of money when a USB flash drive will suffice.
Of course, it's not just USB flash drives. If you're considering replacing your external SSD, it's obvious that you'll be looking for something that's fast, provides a good amount of storage, and is priced without hurting the planet. Not likely? Introducing Adata's Elite UE800 1TB USB Type-C USB 3.2 Gen2 Flash Drive.
The UE800 boasts read/write speeds of up to 1000MB/s, which is an incredible 10x faster than the average USB 3.2 Gen1 drive. This speed and up to 10Gb/s of bandwidth allow you to instantly read and write files large and small.
Amazingly affordable price
The UE800 is backward compatible with USB 2.0 devices and can be used with a wide range of devices including PCs, laptops, smartphones, and tablets.
Adata also addressed the longstanding problem of lost covers and caps with the UE800's slide connector design. The USB Type-C connector can be easily expanded and retracted with one hand, eliminating the need for cumbersome covers.
However, what sets the UE800 apart from the competition is its price. No other device offering 1GB/s speeds can match the UE800's sub-$70 price point.
