Silicon Power Releases Bolt B75 Pro Portable SSD

The uniquely attractive Bolt B75 Pro Portable SSD with USB 3.1 Gen2 interface has joined Silicon Power's (SP) lineup of noteworthy memory storage devices. In an effort to create a well-rounded portable SSD with combined design and performance prowess, SP blended the award-winning design of a previous model with the functionality of an in-demand SSD. The inspiration originated from a German transport plane born nearly a century ago with corrugated metal skin. It inspired the SP design team to add prominent, strengthening ridges to the portable SSD.

Wrapped in a sleek and slim yet lightweight aluminum body that's military-grade shockproof, the Bolt B75 Pro is a perfect example of "form follows function." On the exterior, its 3D ridges provide a barrier from scratches and fingerprints, while the L-shaped LED light gives clear indication of the data transfer status from nearly any angle. On the interior, it has huge storage capacity (256GB/512GB/1TB/2TB) and reads and writes at blistering speeds (up to 520 and 420MB/s respectively).
The Bolt B75 Pro Portable SSD is an eye-catching option for users who want to expand their computer's capability and boost performance anywhere. The competitive landscape of portable SSDs is rich with quality devices. With this striking addition, SP hopes to combine tremendous capabilities with their famed design in order to dominate a crowded space.

The Bolt B75 Pro Features
  • Rapid data transfer with USB 3.1 Gen2 extreme high-speed interface (max. up to 10Gbp/s).
  • Military-grade shockproof (122cm) portable solid state drive.
  • 3D ridged design for protection against scratches and fingerprints.
  • Made of lightweight aluminum with superior heat dissipation.
  • Slim L-shaped LED status light that can be seen from the top and front.
  • Includes 2 USB 3.1 fast sync and charge cables (Type-C to Type-C and Type-C to Type-A).
  • Free SP Widget software download available for backup and restore, AES 256-bit encryption, and cloud storage.

For USB, that's pretty good. Approaching SATA speeds, which is a bonus.

But in terms of NVME, of course it's not anywhere near those speeds.

IMHO, nvme rules, USB drools :)

SATA speeds are soooo 2013-ish........

How do you hook NVME up as an external and portable drive?

Yea I know it still uses USB, but at least it is C type, which is faster than a dog-ass slow sata ssd...

USB-C is a form factor, not a speed spec. USB-C is still currently limited to USB 3.1 Gen 2 speeds.

This statement makes no sense. Both A and C types are capable of the same speed depending on their usb specification... of which the fastest is usb3.1 gen 2. That spec has a theoretical max speed of 1280. Given you’ll likely have several things connected to usb you’re not likely to ever come close to that theoretical max speed. Most usb drives using usb3.1 gen2 standards like the Samsung T5 can reach up to 520 MB/s read speed is pretty damn close to SATA which maxes out at 600 MB/sec.

The only way you’re reaching close to NVMe speeds is using a Thunderbolt 3 drive which isn’t worth the money for the capacity for the vast majority of people.

The drive enclosure you’ve listed at best is wasted with a NVMe drive as the few people posting some results are showing 400MB/sec transfer speeds using Samsung 970 evo installed from what I’ve seen so far. There are some others on amazon have gotten to 900 MB/sec but remarked that the enclosures became very hot on prolonged use
