When we usually talk about mobile storages moving in the spectrum of 1TB, we picture tiny and slim drives similar to 2.5” HDDs. They are small, but apparently for Transcend, not small enough. The Transcend ESD400 is a USB 3.0 storage device that boasts incredible speeds, hefty 1TB storage capacity, coupled with a small footprint.

The Transcend ESD400 is a device you’ll both want but won’t bother to get. It has incredible speeds with 300-280MB/s for both read and write and is on par, in terms of write speeds, with some SSD drives. Complimenting the raw power is its solid build and small size, enough to fit one’s pocket. Adding in some good tools provided by Transcend, the device is already a sweet deal.
But all of its noteworthy positives comes with a price. A pretty exorbitant price of PHP 22,500. In this case, the high price wall is enough to drown interest for an amazing product. But if you don’t want to be bothered by minutes of waiting for a file transfer and you have the dough in hand, then the Transcend ESD400 is the USB device for you.
