Freecom Launches Three New External SSDs

Freecom announces three new solid state drives (SSDs) for those looking to take full advantage of the shock-resistance virtues that SSDs provide while benefiting from rugged data storage devices with high performance and sophisticated sleek design.

Freecom's ultra-miniature mSSD, Mobile Drive Mg SSD and Tough Drive SSD are available to buy in Europe and all come with two years manufacturer's warranty and unlimited helpdesk support.

Freecom mSSD
  • Lightning fast data transfer speeds of up to 430 MB/s
  • Significantly smaller and lighter than a golf ball
  • Mini solid state drive with USB 3.0 connectivity
Freecom unveils the mSSD, a mini solid state drive with USB 3.0 connectivity that has data transfer speeds of up to 430 MB/s - making it one of the fastest external micro-SSDs available in the market and at least four times faster than standard hard disk drives. Being an SSD, it also has all the other benefits of this technology compared to hard disk drives; with no moving parts it is silent during operation, it also uses less power and is far more durable.

Significantly smaller (by volume) and lighter than a golf ball, the Freecom mSSD weighs in at just 29 grams and measures 80 mm x 35 mm x 9 mm (L x W x H) to strike a very appealing balance between portability and performance. With an elegant brushed aluminium enclosure which mirrors the stylish exterior of Macbooks, users also benefit from a very sleek appearance.

The Freecom mSSD is available in 256 GB (product reference: 56314) with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of £239.00.

Freecom Mobile Drive Mg
  • Data storage capacity of 256 GB and 128 GB
  • Data transfer speeds of up to 415 MB/s
  • Weighs just 132g
  • Named after the chemical symbol for the magnesium
Freecom has added SSDs to its Mobile Drive Mg family. Offering 128 GB and 256 GB capacities, all the SSD models feature USB 3.0 connectivity with the top-of-the-range 256 GB model also featuring a Thunderbolt interface for convenient and fast data transfer.

Named after the chemical symbol for the magnesium used to enclose the device, the Freecom Mg SSD delivers data transfer speeds of up to 415 MB/s.

The Freecom Mobile Drive Mg SSD 128 GB version weighs 132 grams and is slim at 120 mm x 81 mm x 10 mm (L x W x H). The 256 GB SSD model with Thunderbolt connectivity weighs 175 grams with a dimension of 129 mm x 81 mm x 129 mm (L x W x H).

Freecom's Mobile Drive Mg SSD has an MSRP of £125.00 for the 128 GB model (product reference: 56293), £245.00 for the 256 GB model (product reference: 56294) and £310.00 for the 256 GB model with USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt interface (product reference: 56273). All drives come with a USB 3.0 connection cable while a Thunderbolt cable is also supplied with the top range model that's also housed in a durable protective case with soft lining.

Freecom Tough Drive SSD
  • Data storage capacity of 256 GB
  • IP55 rated - water and dust resistant
  • Shock-proof up to 4 meters
  • Super-fast transfer speeds of up to 415 MB/s
Freecom's Tough Drive SSD (product reference: 56275) is a competitively priced 256 GB solid state drive (SSD) model within its prized Tough Drive family. It is IP55 rated, meaning that it is resistant to water and is dust proof. Built around an internal anti-shock frame which makes it resilient to drops from up to 4 meters, and further protected by a scratch-proof silicone cover that looks attractive and provides additional grip, the Tough Drive SSD delivers super-fast transfer speeds of up to 415 MB/s.

This latest Tough Drive features a small, integrated USB 3.0 dongle which slots neatly into the unit when not in use and can be easily flipped out when connected, a feature that avoids misplacing a separate cable.

Freecom's Tough Drive SSD is lightweight at 180 grams and compact at just 140 mm x 80 mm x 19 mm (L x W x H) so it can easily be slipped into a pocket or case and taken around with users wherever they go.

"The decision to develop so many new SSD external drives makes perfect sense when you consider the performance and reliability benefits that so many Freecom customers are looking for. With high quality design, our new SSDs are among the world's slimmest and most high performing available in the market," explains Simon Rudolfsson, Business Development Manager for the Freecom Brand in EMEA.
