The SD700 represents the first time 3D NAND SSD that has achieved IP68 dust and water proof specifications in addition to military-grade shock proofing, all thanks to a tough protective enclosure and testing.

The SD700 uses USB 3.1 Gen 1 to connect with Windows, Mac OS, and Android devices at speed read up to 440MB/s and write up to 430MB/s. In addition it is also light, weighing 100 grams for mobility.

The SD700 will be available in 512GB and 256GB models, priced at £159 and £99 respectively.

3D NAND external SSDs get tough
The SD700 has been designed and tested to IEC IP68 standards. That means it is dust-tight to prevent particulate ingress and can operate normally even after submersion in 1.5m of water for 60 minutes. The company has also tested the SD700 to the US Army MIL-STD-810G516.6 shock and drop resistance standard, ensuring a high degree of shock proofing. With its multi-layered protective enclosure and lack of moving parts as an SSD, the SD700 offers survivable storage for extreme activities. 

Benefits of 3D NAND brought to new segment
ADATA has been transitioning more products to 3D NAND, which is faster, more reliable, and more power efficient than traditional 2D NAND. The SD700 arrives in 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB at competitive price points that deliver a better cost/performance ratio than older, non-3D NAND SSDs.

For connectivity, the SD700 uses USB 3.1 Gen 1, more than enough to stream 4K content with no buffering or lag. Typical data speeds are read up to 440MB/s and write up to 430MB/s. The SD700 is plug and play compatible with Windows, Mac OS, and Android devices.

Additionally, ADATA is offering the SD700 in two-tone black and yellow or all-black color schemes.
