Lexar launches super-light SL200 USB-C portable SSD starting at $89 USD
Lexar is on a roll this year with multiple new product announcements. After having just launched the NM700 series of NVMe SSDs and its first DDR4 RAM sticks, the San Jose-based memory manufacturer will now be making available its SL200 family of portable SSDs to succeed the older SL100 family.
The SL200 will bring several improvements over the outgoing SL100 including higher 512 GB and 1 TB capacities and a much lighter weight (40.6 g vs. 70.5 g). Overall dimensions, however, are actually larger this time around (86 mm x 60 mm x 9.5 mm vs. 73.4 x 55 x 10.8 mm). Maximum transfer rates are still at 550 MB/s read and 400 MB/s write with the USB-C 3.1 interface.
The Lexar SL200 will be ready to ship later this month at online retailers like Adorama and B&H with 3-year warranty standard across the board. The 512 GB and 1 TB options will be available first for $90 and $160 USD, respectively, with a 2 TB option coming at a later date.
More information on the SL200 can be found here on its official product page.
