Transcend Introduces New Line of Portable Storage for Mac

/ 2 years ago


Transcend has announced the launch of their StoreJet for Mac series of external drives. These new drives are designed with Macs in mind and come preformatted HFS+ and fully support Time Machine for simple plug and play. The SJM100 and SJM300 are Portable Hard Drives while the SJM500 is a Portable Solid State Drive. A complete line-up with both large capacities and rapid transfer speeds.


The SJM100 is a USB 3.0 Hard Drive with military-grade data protection. The drive meets the rigorous U.S. military drop-test standards and has a slip-resistant silicone casing that is reinforced by an internal hard drive suspension damper. This design should absorb a maximum of shock damage. This drive will be available with 2TB storage, enough for 512 hours of Full HD video. Another added feature is the One-touch auto-backup button that works together with the Transcend Elite software. Once configured, all you need to do is press a button to backup and synchronize your files.


The SJM300 is an altered version of the SJM100 that features a Thunderbolt port and cable instead of the extra shock resistance. The SJM500 is a portable USB 3.0 SSD with UASP support as well as a Thunderbolt port. The specifications list a performance up to 440MB/s while reading and the SSD will be available in 256GB, 512GB and 1TB capacities.

All three drives come with a three-year warranty and of course also support other operating systems, it just requires a re-format.
