The products set to receive the capacity boost are the SanDisk Extreme Pro Portable SSD with up to 2000MB/s read and write speeds; the SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD that features up to two-metre drop protection and IP55 water and dust resistance; the My Passport SSD from WD that is  shock and vibration resistant, and drop resistant up to 6.5 feet and the WD_BLACK P50.

“This milestone allows us to deliver a new era of solutions with the capacity and performance our customers have been asking for. Our consumer brand products are used by millions of professionals and consumers around the world, and we continue to drive technology forward to deliver the performance, reliability and leading products they demand,” said Jim Welsh, senior vice president and general manager of Consumer Solutions Products, Western Digital.

“As a Director of Photography in film and television production, I rely on technology to achieve my creative vision and protect my work. SanDisk® SSDs are a critical asset when I’m out in the field or at the studio working with multiple 12K and 8K cameras,” said Sam Nicholson, ASC, SanDisk Extreme Team member.+ “High-capacity, high-performance SSDs make it easy to reliably manage these files, and the SanDisk Extreme Pro® portable SSDs are my go-to drive when I’m shooting on location. With added capacity, I have even more freedom to continue creating amazing content.”
