New 4 TB SSDs From SanDisk and WD

Juli Clover:

The SanDisk Extreme Pro Portable NVMe SSD offers up to 2000MB/s read and write speeds, and its aluminum chassis serves as a heatsink to deliver higher sustained speeds. The SanDisk Extreme Pro Portable SSD will be available later this quarter for $750.


Under the WD brand, Western Digital debuted the latest MyPassport SSD, which offers read speeds up to 1050MB/s and write speeds up to 1000MB/s. It features a shock and vibration resistant metal design that is drop resistant up to 6.5 feet, and it comes in colors that include blue, gray, red, gold, and silver. It will be available later this quarter for $680.

Apple currently charges $800 to upgrade a MacBook Air from 256 GB to a maximum of 2 TB. With a 16-inch MacBook Pro, you can upgrade from 512 GB to 4 TB for $1,200.

Howard Oakley:

I’m delighted to release the first full and non-beta version of Stibium, my free benchmarking utility for storage performance testing, most particularly with SSDs.
