LaCie on Wednesday announced its new Portable SSD, an external drive intended for people working in video, photography, and other media-intensive fields.

The drive uses USB 3.1 Gen 2, supporting throughput up to 10 gigabits per second via an included USB 3.1 type-C cable. Alternately a second cable can connect to USB-A devices.

Read speeds run up to 540 megabytes per second, enough to transfer an hour of 4K 30fps video in less than a minute, according to the company. Write speeds are slightly slower at 500 megabytes per second.

The drive comes pre-formatted in exFAT, and in 500-gigabyte, 1-terabyte, and 2-terabyte configurations typically priced at $124.99, $269.99, and $539.99 respectively. The 2-terabyte option should be enough to hold up to 65 hours of 4K30 video, or as many as 20,000 RAW photos, assuming a 100-megabyte image size.
