For long-term storage of your files, the 256GB Opal 2.0 SSD provides quick access to your data.

Having no moving parts also allows SSDs to operate with faster data transfer speeds. SSDs also receive less wear and tear, as they do not have any read and write heads for the drive media to come into contact with.
