SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD 240GB review


The SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD is a thin, portable SSD storage drive that also boasts fast benchmark speeds. Here's our review of the drive.

For those that need high-speed portable storage, the Extreme 500 is a solid choice. Capacities extend to 480GB which should be fine for most people. If you need more, look no further than the Samsung T3.

SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD


The SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD is a versatile solid-state drive that combines durability, fast performance, and value in a compact package.

Compatible with Mac and Windows out of the box. Comes with software that enables 128-bit AES encryption. Compact size. Shock and vibration resistant. Speedy performance. Good per-gigabyte price for an SSD.

Short, USB 3.0–only cord.

If you want a hardy, speedy SSD that fits into the palm of your hand and miraculously won't burn a hole in your wallet, the SanDisk Extreme 500 is a safe bet. It's not fully ruggedized, but it is shock and vibration resistant, and 128-bit encryption...

SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD Review


The SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD is a value-focused external flash-based product for those who need rugged high-speed storage while on the go.

The performance and price stand out, but we also found value in the software package that enables 128-bit encryption

I'm not sold on the advanced software features coming as a paid upgrade. If the software has the capability, then we feel SanDisk should include it as a value-add to make this series more attractive than the products coming from Samsung

Overall, we like the SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD and would buy one if needed. These products are not for everyone. Advanced thumb drives have increased in capacity and are smaller, but fail to deliver the same high transfer rates of data. The gap...

SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD (240GB) Review and Ratings


SanDisk's slim external SSD isn't the fastest we've tested, but it's not far off, and it's reasonably priced. Just know that if you need more than 480GB of speedy storage, you'll have to look elsewhere.

Swift performance at a reasonable price ; Durable-feeling plastic shell ; USB 3.0 cable is removable and replaceable

Capacity tops out at 480GB ; Textured-plastic top can collect dust and dirt ; Newer Extreme 510 model offers better shock- and water-resistance ; Competing Samsung T1 costs less

The SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD is the swift performer you'd expect; it's slim and compact enough for easy transport; and its rubber cap over the drive's port should provide some protection against the elements. Those likely to use their portable...
