The SanDisk Extreme 500 is a portable solid state drive that was recently revealed in Taiwan. These rugged drives offer the advantage of not having any moving parts, meaning they can take plenty of physical abuse without your files being compromised in any way.

Available in storage capacities of 120, 240 and 480 GB, the SanDisk Extreme 500 measures 2.98 x 2.98 x 0.42 inches, making it a pretty compact offering. It is also fitted with a rubber bumper that makes it shock resistant to up to 800 Gs at 0.5 meters per second.

As far as straight-up performance is concerned, the drive offers sequential read/write speeds of up to 415 and 240 megabytes per second respectively.

With its combination of huge storage capacity and small size, the SanDisk Extreme 500 is a fabulous piece of computing technology.
