2020 has been the year of USB 3.2 gen 2 portable solid state drives and we’ve reviewed quite a few already. What is so great about these drives is that they are basically doubling the speeds we saw from USB 3.2 gen 1 drives last year, but are launching at around the same price. While most of the drives we’ve taken a look at this year have been very similar, today we are taking a drive that stands out a little bit. It is the ORICO SV100 which is designed as a more rugged drive as it is shockproof, waterproof, and crush-proof! The casing also has a spot to hold your cable so you never forget it! Let’s see what this drive is all about!
The SV100 comes in ORICO’s typical retail packaging. On the front there is a picture of the drive and it lets us know that it has a 3-year warranty as well as the capacity. Our drive is 512GB, but ORICO offers the SV100 in 128GB, 256GB, and 1TB capacities as well.
Flipping over to the back we have a full list of specifications and some of the main features are detailed as well.
Getting everything out of the box we have the SV100 portable solid state drive, USB-C cable, USB-C to USB-A cable, and a user’s guide.
