Here’s a tiny little SSD for those who like portability and speed. The Apacer ASMini is a really portable piece of external storage. Here’s why.
Starting off, the Apacer ASMini is deemed be name card-sized with a dimension of 7.1cm x 5.4cm x 0.6cm. As you can tell, it’s really thin – and it’s meant to be inside any pocket. However, never judge a small package by its size, but its performance. Available up to a whopping 240GB capacity, the Apacer ASMini can hold up to 6 hours of 4K footage – no problems!
Equipped with USB-C 3.1 Gen 1, it can achieve up to a read/write speed of 450MB/s and 400 MB/s respectively – which is pretty darn good considering it’s a USB-based external storage device. However, just like any other external hard disks, the Apacer ASMini is susceptible to everyday wear and tear because of the harsh environment.
That’s where Apacer’s engineering comes further into play. It can withstand up to 20G of vibration and 1,500G of shock force, and since it’s an SSD where there are no moving parts, it can still read and write data while moving through uneven terrain quickly. Apacer also included TRIM, NCQ, ECC, 72bit/1KB, and S.M.A.R.T. to ensure the Apacer ASMini’s wellbeing over a long period of time. With Apacer’s SSDWidget software, the ASMini can be maintained, monitored, and constantly updated with the latest firmware whenever available.
