The device offers fast read speeds, up to 1,050MB/s, and offers up to 2TB of capacity. It comes with a USB-C to USB-A cable, so you can connect it to different devices. Kingston tests all its drives to make sure they work well and are reliable. It’s as small as a key fob, making it great for backing up your important files, photos, and videos.

“We know our customers want storage that’s fast, reliable, and affordable. With the XS1000, we’re giving them more options for external storage,” said Kingston.

“We designed this drive to be small and compact. In fact, it’s currently the smallest external SSD on the market with speeds up to 1,050MB/s, and it’s only half the size of a regular SSD. That means it’s super portable and perfect for anyone who wants both convenience and top-notch performance.”
