For those that need fast, on-the-go storage external storage, the folks at Plugable have launched a new 512GB SKU of its Thunderbolt 3 NVMe External SSD. Plugable is aiming the device at content creators, and explains that the external SSD is capable of holding up to 85 minutes of ProRes 422 HQ 4K video or 75 minutes of DnXHR HQ 4K video.

With that 512GB capacity comes some pretty speedy transfer speeds as well, as afforded by the PCIe NVMe SSD inside connecting to the outside world through a Thunderbolt 3 interface. Plugable is quoting sequential read speeds of 2400MB/sec and sequential writes of 1800MB/sec. Even better, the external SSD has no need for an external power brick, with data and power all taken care of with a single Thunderbolt 3 cable.

The 512GB Thunderbolt 3 NVMe External SSD has an anodized aluminum chassis design, while the Thunderbolt 3 cable is integrated, so that's one less thing to lose when out and about. The drive weighs just 6.1 ounces and Plugable is offering a 3-year warranty. 

Plugable says that the 512GB Thunderbolt 3 NVMe External SSD is available to purchase now with a price tag of $199 compared to $299 and $499 respectively for its 1TB and 2TB counterparts. However, the drive is on sale now for just $179 if you clip the $20 coupon on the Amazon product page for the device. Amazon is also offering free two-day shipping for Prime members along with free returns.
