Green House Unveils New Rugged Portable SSD

Japanese manufacturer Green House unveiled its latest portable solid state drive (SSD), the GH-SSDE-U3A. Measuring 79 (W) x 137.5 (D) x 12.5 (H) mm, and weighing 141 g, the drive is inherently more tolerant to mechanical shocks than portable hard drives. It uses the USB 3.0 SuperSpeed interface, with a single cable drawing power from the host, and providing 5 Gb/s interconnect bandwidth.

The Green House GH-SSDE-U3A provides respectable transfer rates of 220 MB/s reads, and 180 MB/s writes, and comes in capacities of 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB. It uses MLC NAND flash memory chips, while its controller isn't known. The drive's body is completely made of metal, powder-coated matte-black. Backed by a one-year warranty, the Green House GH-SSDE-U3A will reach stores by the end of this month. Its price, however, is still under the wraps.
