Bottomline: With the rigid build quality, the SSD is a light, thin and small drive to carry huge data.

The powerful slim and tiny SSD is a perfect alternative to store large data in a safe and lightweight storage drive. The Pocket Vault SSD with 512 GB storage capacity offers 472 GB to the user. It uses an mSATA interface to accomplish its performance. Pocket Vault sits under a plastic exterior with a metallic finish. The sleek and small design of the device makes it ultra compact to easily slip into your pocket without troubling you with its weight. It comes with USB 3.0 SuperSpeed cable that allows you to transfer data easily and quickly. It also works on USB 2.0 ports.

The Pocket Vault is a versatile plug and play device that makes transferring files hassle free on any PC, Mac, and Linux operating systems. The USB powered durable and shock resistant drive works so quietly that you won’t notice that it’s running. With solid state technology combined with TrueCrypt free software, it allows users to password protect files and essentially lock the drive for safekeeping.

The company claims that Pocket Vault can transfer 1GB of data in under 4 seconds via any USB 3.0 port. Though it didn’t reach that level, yet performed well in our testing. We transferred 10 GB assorted data using USB 3.0 that resulted with up to 126.9 mbps read and 145.2 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 183.7 read and 151.4 write speeds; while in HD Tune Pro, it clocked a max/min read speed of 253.4/173.5 MB/s respectively.
