“Engineered with the reliability and stability that are hallmarks of Toshiba SSDs, the XS700 is extremely rugged and has no moving parts – making it a highly durable and efficient way to safeguard data. The drive is covered in aluminum, is shock-proof and has been drop-test certified at a height of two meters. Other security-focused features include a utility that enables users to password-protect their drives and conduct maintenance, monitoring and additional tuning.” – Toshiba Memory America

The XS700 uses a compact design, measuring in at 2.95 x 3.74″ and weighing 90g. Toshiba chose exFAT for the file system to maximize compatibility across devices, and to further round out the feature list, the company includes a software layer that allows users to password protect their data.

Toshiba said the XS700 series is “starting” with the 240GB capacity drive. so it looks like more are to come.
