Western Digital offers new, pocket-sized portable SSD to mainstream consumers

Western Digital today announced the WD Elements™ SE SSD, a new portable storage solution that marries pocket-sized design with performance. This compact device is a great solution for consumers who need a portable drive to move files fast. With the WD Elements SE SSD, the consumer is in control of their content across laptops, desktops and other devices, whether on the job or creating content for fun.

“For a long time, solid-state drives have been something that not all consumers could comfortably afford,” said Fabrizio Keller, Sr. Product Marketing Manager EMEA.

At Western Digital, Keller said the company aims to make SSD technology more accessible for consumers. “People should not have to make the difficult decision between affordability, performance and the dependability of a brand that they can trust, which is why we are thrilled to be able to bring the WD Elements SE SSD to the local market.”
