MyDigitalSSD OTG Mini SSD comes in a plastic body that gets a rugged finish. It is light in weight and comes with SuperSpeed USB 3.0 cable to connect it with PC or other devices easily. It also works on USB 2.0 ports. The OTG uses a USB 3.0 to mSATA conversion PCB with the latest ASMedia controller on-board and features a 256GB NAND. Out of 256GB, 223GB storage capacity is available to the user.

OTG mini is quite sleek and small to easily slip into your pocket without troubling you with its weight. It is a versatile plug and play drive that makes transferring files hassle free on any PC, Mac, and Linux operating systems. This OTG mSSD claims to offer USB 3.0 5Gbps performance with any USB Attached SCSI Protocol (UASP) compliant system, resulting in real SSD speed up to 460MB/s. It is compatible with all USB devices. The company claims blazing speeds up to 210MB/s with USB 3.0 and up to 38MB/s while using USB2.0.

With no moving parts, the OTG SSD (mSSD) consumes less power as compared to that of a spinning hard drive, extending the battery life of mobile devices like today’s popular notebooks and tablets. With solid state technology and TrueCrypt free software, it allows users to easily password protect files and essentially lock their drive. It performed well in our testing while transferring 10 GB assorted data using USB 3.0. It resulted with up to 132.8 mbps read and 116.92 mbps write speed in our test bed (3 GHz AMD Athlon II X2 250 CPU, 4 GB Kingston DDR3 RAM, Windows 10 OS). It performed well in the benchmark tests as well, in Crystal Disk Mark, it gave 401.4 read and 213.2 write speeds, while in HD Tune Pro, it clocked a max/min read speed of 174.0/96.6 MB/s respectively.
