Transfer data at incredibly fast speeds. With NVMe SSD technology and USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface, our SL-M series achieves up to 1000 MB/s read and write speed — fast enough for highly efficient workflows, even when using high-resolution RAW images, 4K video and beyond. Even better, you'll enjoy constant high speed even when copying tremendous amounts of data or when data is overwritten many times thank to our latest SSD controller.
IP67 waterproof and dustproof
Built using a variety of waterproof and dustproof components, including a USB Type-C port that is waterproof even without a sealing cap, and a seamless aluminum body. Our SL-M series can be immersed in up to 3.28 feet of water for up to 30 minutes and is completely dustproof too. That's total protection for storing data in all conditions and environments.
Ultra-strong in seamless aluminum
An innovative one-piece aluminum body with omni-directional shockproof construction enables these ultra tough drives to withstand drops of up to 29.53 feet, pressure of up to 6,000 kgf, and bending of 2,000 kgf. This gives you the toughness you need while travelling or on photo shoots.
Wave surface with easy-to-see LED indicator
A durable wave surface ensures a secure slip-free grip while carrying and handling cables, resists fingerprints and makes the drive easy to find by touch when searching for it in your bag. The LED indicator has been thoughtfully placed so that it's easy to see from the top or the front, allowing you to quickly check access status.
Easy labeling and identification
Supplied with two rubber bands and a sticker sheet, SL-M drives make it easy to label drives and identify stored content. This is very useful when using multiple drives.
Stay secure with hardware encryption and password protection
Enjoy peace of mind with AES 256-bit encryption on the embedded SSD controller. Dedicated hardware encryption means no transfer slow-downs. Dual password protection allows the owner to lend out the locked drive using just a guest password without having to reveal the administrator password. Passwords can be managed by the SSD Utility app.
Lifetime Checker: Helps you check the condition of your drive
Lifetime checker is supported by the SSD Utility app, which automatically scans your drive when the drive is connected. It shows an easy-to-understand warning message if the embedded flash memory is approaching the limit of its write cycle.
Sometimes things go wrong and you accidentally delete files and photos. The Memory Card File Rescue app is a powerful and easy-to-use tool that recovers data. Available as a free download for Sony External SSD SL-M series customers.
Up to 2TB of storage capacity
Keep all your precious files safe and secure with a choice of 500GB, 1TB or 2TB of storage on the go — that's enough room and speed to store, edit and organize high-resolution RAW images, 4K videos and beyond, digital content projects, and more.
