To transport electronic files between different locations, we have two options: use a USB pen drive or a hard drive or portable SSD, depending on the amount of information we want to transport with us. The TEAMGROUP PD1000 belongs to this last group of storage units.
With the addition of having different IP and military security certifications that will ensure that the data always arrives at its destination, safe and sound.

Since we are talking about the file transfer rates of this PD1000 model, these are up to 1000 MB / s in sequential reading and 900 MB / s in sequential writing. Precisely because of these, the PD1000 uses the USB 3.2 Gen 2 as the file transfer interface, which is capable of using all the bandwidth required by this portable unit.
Of course, this does not mean that we cannot use it with a normal USB 3.0. Simply, with that data interface its performance will be lower than the one that is capable of reaching the PD1000.
The PD1000 has also undergone the strict validation tests MIL-STD-810G 516.6 Procedure IV of the United States Army, which certifies that this model is capable of withstanding falls from medium heights, such as from the height of a desk to the floor.
It also has IP68 certification, which will ensure that the device is resistant to water, dust and pressure.
This portable SSD is available in two different capacities : there is a model with an internal storage capacity of 512 GB, while there will also be another model with an internal capacity of 1 TB.
All of them will come with two USB cables in the package: a USB A to USB C cable, plus another USB C to USB C cable.
As usual in this type of TEAMGROUP products, the PD1000 has a 3 year limited warranty.
