Seagate Technology today announced the new Seagate One Touch SSD offering NVMe-competitive performance and stylish portability for technology enthusiasts and content creators alike. One Touch SSD delivers maximum sequential read/write speeds (up to 1030 MB/s) and up to 2 TB of storage making it a high-performance external drive optimized for efficiency when managing and transporting important files.

Compatible with Windows and Mac, the drive offers USB compatibility out of the box (exFAT formatted). Seagate's One Touch SSD uses USB 3.2 Gen 2 USB-C technology and is compatible with USB-C and USB 3.0 computers; both cables are included in the box. Also compatible with Android mobile devices, One Touch SSD helps free up extra space by backing up videos, photos, and files using the Seagate Mobile Touch app. Great for those on the go, the drive offers shock-resistance to a drop height of up to 2 meters.



Designed with an aluminium top cover and fabric-soft touch on the sides, the compact One Touch SSD is available in black, silver, or blue and has a sleek and contemporary look that complements modern PCs. It includes Seagate's Toolkit desktop software with Sync Plus offering file synchronization via continuous backup and Rescue Data Recovery Services to help defend against data loss and retrieval costs so users can rest easier. The drive is also packaged with a one-year complimentary subscription to Mylio Create and a four-month complimentary membership to Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan.

Available this month, Seagate One Touch SSD is offered for MSRPs of $94.99 (500 GB), $169.99 (1 TB) and $309.99 (2 TB).

NVMe-competitive performance... ????​


Hummmm.... last time I checked (yesterday) even the average, everyday budget line (Gen3) Nvme drives can manage about 2000-2500MB/s, and top end ones going up to ~3600, so whazzzuppp with this statement.

Granted, most portable drives won't run that fast, and yea, 1030MB/s is way faster than SATA drives, but just sayin that statement seems to be stretchin things a little IMHO... :rolleyes:.:laugh:.:shadedshu:
