Thanks to the incredible transfer speeds and the compact build designs of SSDs, they have now become an integral part of content creators’ kits, especially for those who work on the go. Vloggers, media creators, filmmakers, professional photographers – all prefer an SSD over an HDD these days. If you are looking for a sleek and compact SSD, then here are four such SSDs with 1TB storage that are available on Amazon. Note that all these products have been selected based on their listed features.

Samsung T7

If you are looking for a compact and pocket-friendly 1TB SSD, then the Samsung T7 might be just what the doctor ordered. It has dimensions of 8.50 x 5.70 x 0.80cm, and it weighs 58g, making it an easily portable device. As per company claims, you can expect read and write speeds of 1050mbps and 1000mbps respectively. As a result, you should be able to transfer the large files like 4K videos and images in RAW format in a matter of seconds. Furthermore, it has a sophisticated thermal solution that uses the ePCM technology and the Dynamic Thermal Guard, which should keep the device under the optimal temperature even when it is operating at fast speeds. It is embedded with specialised management software, which you can use to get the latest firmware updates so that your device is up to date and compatible with most modern gadgets.

WD My Passport SSD

Here is a slim and compact 1TB SSD from WD that supports a 256-bit AES hardware encryption, thus making sure that your data remains safe. It uses the NVMe technology to deliver fast transfer speeds up to 1050mbps so that you do not have to wait for more than a few seconds while transferring heavy files. Furthermore, the device has a strong build, making it resistant to shocks and vibrations, even from a height of 6.5 feet, as per company claims. As a result, you won’t have to worry about damaging the SSD due to accidental falls and ending up losing your data.

Adata SD700

The Adata SD700, because of its rugged body, is ideal for frequent travellers, especially ones who travel through tough outdoor conditions. This 1TB SSD from Adata has passed the military-grade MIL-STD-810G 516.6 drop test, which makes it ideal to be used in most tough terrains that you can encounter out there. Moreover, it is quite small in size and is lightweight as well, making it easy to carry around. In terms of transfer speeds, you should be able to enjoy read/write speeds up to 440mbps, as per company claims.

SanDisk 1 TB 

From the company which commercialized the first flash-based SSD comes this device with a scorchingly high maximum read speed of 550 MBps, which allows you to save high resolution images and videos to it very, very quickly. Its port is a USB 3.1 Type C one, and the device comes with a USB 3.1 Type C to Type C cable, and also a very useful Type C to Type A adapter. It works with both Windows and Mac Operating Systems. Being IP55 rated, it is protected against dust and water jets. Its solid state core is both shock resistant (can withstand a drop from 2m), as well as vibration resistant. Smaller than a smartphone, it is easily portable, yet compact and rugged looking with a perforated look. Its design features a ring in one corner via which it can easily be clipped on to a belt or satchel.     

Samsung T5 1 TB

With read speeds of almost five times those of conventional HDDs, this Samsung SSD’s performance is a huge step up from hard drives! Compatible with Windows, Mac and Android, it uses a USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface which is backwards compatible. (One USB-C to USB-C and one USB-C to USB-A cable are included.) With no moving parts and a sturdy metal body, it can withstand drops from a height of 2 metres. Not that you’d be dropping it, what with its rounded edges which make it easy to clasp firmly. It comes with Management Software on it, with optional password protection capability. Of the size of a credit card and weighing a mere 51 grams, this little device is the perfect storage to carry with you to back up camera photos or videos when on holiday, for example.  

Seagate BarraCuda Fast 1 TB 

Yet another robust-looking offering from Seagate, the BarraCuda Fast gives you lightning fast speeds of up to 540 MBps. Its minimalist design features a sleek green LED light which rings its upper-tiered face. It can be used with both Windows and Mac devices and connects to them with either a USB-C to USB-C or a USB-C to USB-A cable. Embedded in the SSD are Seagate’s back-up and folder-mirroring software, which allow you to track your file additions, deletions and changes and keep them updated. They also offer their 3 year Rescue Data Recovery Service, which helps you to recover any accidental data loss. Its rugged look makes it just the device on which to install and boot your favourite games faster than ever, no matter where you are.
