Product Description

Samsung Solid State Drives leap over the performance of traditional hard drives with its stylish enclosure, reliability, durability and energy efficiency.

Solid Brushed Metal Design
The Samsung 470 Series Solid-State Drive features a sturdy, brushed metal hard shell case to protect it from shock, dust, and corrosion.

No moving parts also means no noise or delays from hard drive spin-ups.
