Lexar has been coming out with quite a few different gamer-centric products lately. We saw that with both their Hades and and ARES memory kits. Well their latest product takes aim at gamers as well. It is the SL660 BLAZE portable solid state drive, which definitely stands out in the crowd of portable solid state drives with its unique design, stand, and RGB lighting. It is not all show either as it boasts speed up to 2000 MB/s read and 1900 MB/s write! Is this going to be our favorite portable drive of 2022?
Special thanks to Lexar for providing us with the SL660 BLAZE Portable Solid State Drive to review.
The SL660 BLAZE comes in a very nice retail package. On the front there is a picture of the drive and we get a listing of speeds and well as capacity. Lexar sent us over the 1TB version of the drive, but it also comes in a 500GB version as well. No word yet on if a 2TB version is coming.
Flipping the box over to the back there is more information on the drive, a list of what is all in the box, and system requirements for running the drive.
Getting everything out of the box we have the SL660 BLAZE drive, stand, travel pouch, a USB-C cable, USB-C to USB-A cable, and a quick start guide.
