How do External SSDs connect?

They have been around for a few years now, and external SSD drives are incredibly fast, durable, almost completely quiet and convenient. They connect to a computer in one of three ways; USB 2.0, USB 3.0, and eSATA. For a much faster performance, go for a USB 3.0 or eSATA connection.

There are lots of uses for External SSD drives including video editing. If you are a student on a digital media or video course, then an external (portable) SSD is an essential item. Producing work in class and then being able to take your work home with you, or wherever you go means you are not reliant on uni or college equipment to complete projects. A desktop computer could be used as a work backup.

Great for gamers

External SSD drives are loved by gamers because it means they can take their games with them and run them from a different computer or from their gaming platform. This flexibility counts for a lot when at uni or travelling. If you speak to a gamer, they will tell you that the most annoying thing about games today is the time they take to load, and the quality of the graphics. Well, you can plug in your external SSD into the front of your Playstation, format the drive and use it as external storage for your favourite games. This means you can download more games and run them directly from your external SSD drive. Regardless of the gaming platform, you can save games to your SSD drive and take that wherever you go.

Complete backup

You can use an external SSD drive as a backup drive for your Mac or use it to backup your entire Windows computer. In fact, external SSDs can handle almost every task you throw at them. They are great for professionals, but also for students who perhaps tend to be a bit tougher on their technology. You can easily imagine them ramming their external SSD into their backpack. And how many times do they just drop their bag on to the floor? So, external SSDs are rugged, and they can even survive a trip in the washing machine (but best not to try it, eh?).

External SSD Drives for Multi-Tasking

SSDs can transfer data between 300mb/s to 40gb/s, depending on the drive in question. Traditional hard drives, (HDDs), are quite a lot slower, offering anywhere between 20mb/s and 220mb/s. When you are using an SSD, you are not waiting for the computer to catch up all the time, if anything, due to super-fast speeds, the computer is waiting for you. Video editors want to do all their work on an SSD as they are so fast, and it also frees up the computer. Even when you are busy multi-tasking an SSD drive is much faster than the traditional mechanical HDD drive.

Capacity and build

External SSDs are available in capacities of up to 2TB. They are designed to be moved around so are made from lightweight, shock-resistant materials. Most have an aluminium shell to protect the drive from bumps and drops. With USB 3.0 interfaces you can hook up external SSDs to any PC and quickly transfer file to and from the drive. As well as external SSDs with USBs you'll also find models equipped with Thunderbolt connections.
