Sony SL-M1 500GB USB 3.1 Gen 2 External SSD

Incredibly fast with durability to match, the Sony SL-M1 USB 3.1 Gen 2 External SSD is perfect for storing high-resolution photo collections, high-definition videos, and other data-rich multimedia content. Up to 1,000 MB/s read and write speed using NVMe technology through the SuperSpeed USB 10‑Gbps (USB 3.2 Gen 2) interface makes every step of your professional workflow faster for more efficient backups, duplication, and editing. It’s tough too with IP67 durability and 3m shock resistance, allowing you to concentrate on your creativity rather than worrying about your precious data.

Incredible Performance

Transfer data at incredibly fast speeds. With NVMe SSD technology and SuperSpeed USB 10­Gbps (USB 3.2 Gen 2) interface, the Sony SL-M series achieves up to 1,000 MB/s read and write speed - fast enough for highly efficient workflows, even when using high-resolution RAW images, 4K video and beyond. Even better, you’ll enjoy constant high speed even when copying a tremendous amount of data or overwriting data many times thanks to our latest SSD controller.

Storage Capacity

Keep all your precious files safe and secure with up to 500GB storage on the go - that's enough room and speed to store, edit and organize high-resolution RAW images, 4K videos and beyond, digital content projects, and more.

IP67 Waterproof and Dustproof

Built using a variety of waterproof and dustproof components, including a USB Type-C port, which is waterproof even without a sealing cap, and a seamless aluminum body. This SSD can be immersed in up to 1m of water for up to 30 minutes and is completely dustproof too. That’s total protection for storing data in all conditions and environments.

Ultra-Strong in Seamless Aluminum

An innovative one-piece aluminum body with omnidirectional shockproof construction enables this ultra-tough drive to withstand drops of up to 3m, the pressure of up to 6,000 kgf, and bending of 2,000 kgf. This gives you the toughness you need while traveling or on photo shoots.

Wave Surface with Easy-to-See LED Indicator

A durable wave surface ensures a secure slip-free grip while carrying and handling cables, resists fingerprints, and makes the drive easy to find by touch when searching for it in your bag. The LED indicator has been thoughtfully placed so that it's easy to see from the top or front, allowing you to quickly check access status.

Easy Labelling and Identification

Supplied with two rubber bands and a sticker sheet that make it easy to label drives and identify stored content. This is very useful when using multiple drives.

File Rescue

Sometimes things go wrong and you accidentally delete files and photos. The Memory Card File Rescue app is a powerful and easy-to-use tool that recovers data. This app is available as a free download for Sony External SSD SL-M series customers.
