Built with speed in mind, it integrates USB Type-C connector to provide data reading/writing speeds.

The EX1 is designed to be shock-proof, quiet during operation, lightweight, and portable; it also supports mobile storage on Android devices via OGT*. It offers an external storage option for large-capacity file transfer and backup.

The speed bottleneck of external storage devices no longer affects system performance. EX1's design specifications focuses on speed. The USB Type-C interface supports USB 3.1 Gen 2 standards, and can provide transfer speeds 10 times faster than USB 2.0. Equipped with Plextor's SSD core, the EX1 offers 550/500 MB/s continuous R/W speeds, respectively, providing more data transfer efficiency that traditional flash drives or external HDDs.

EX1's data transfer performance sets users free and creates application possibilities. Tasks such as copying, transferring, or backing up large files, playing/editing ultra-high-definition video clips, or the post-production of high-resolution photos can be done instantaneously at these unprecedented speeds. EX1's data transmission specifications allows the external storage to perform at speeds comparable to those of internal devices, which benefits users of ultra-slim laptops and mobile devices as they can expand their storage capacity to run applications or access data directly from the EX1. Users can also launch OSs and complete databases from the EX1 to streamline their efficiency in terms of both work and play.

Weighing 30 grams, the EX1 provides high data transfer speeds and is almost as compact as a conventional flash drive. The durable SSD storage core eliminates common problems associated with external HDDs such as shaking and over-heating. The speed, shock resistance, and silent features add stability and convenience to mobile storage users. The design of the EX1's exterior is available in gold and titanium silver.

The package also contains a Type-C to Type-A USB adapter cable, carrying pouch and AES-256 encryption software, which complement any smartphone, tablet, or laptop.

Plextor's senior director Eva Lee stated: "Data transfer speed, durability, and stability are the key factors for consumers when shopping for an external storage device. Plextor's highly regarded SSD technology has given EX1 its excellent reading/writing speeds, an extended service life, and stable performance. The new generation Type-C interface offers even faster connectivity with the latest computers and mobile devices. Sophisticated, lightning-fast, shock resistant, and durable, EX1 establishes a new standard for the next generation of external storage devices."

The EX1 is designed and manufactured based on the Plextor standards. All components as well as the core SSD have passed stringent tests. It has an MTBF of 2.4 million hours.

To be released in November, the EX1 will be available in three capacity options - 128/256/512GB, and covered with a five-year warranty.

*A data transfer cable that connects to mobile phone must be purchased separately in order to use Android's OTG feature.
