In October 2021 Apple surprised with the new MacBook Pro. The new model not only came in a 14-inch variant for the first time, but also brought back old interfaces such as the SD card reader. In line with this, storage expert Transcend has released the new “JetDrive Lite 330” SD cards, which are designed to easily expand the storage capacity of the MacBook Pro. Now the company has announced a new high-end variant.
Transcend JetDrive Lite 330 1TB
Like Transcend per press release announced the company developed the “1TB JetDrive Lite 330” expansion card exclusively for the 2021 MacBook Pro and the reintroduced SD card reader. When designing, the memory manufacturer pays particular attention to compact dimensions, so that the SD card hardly protrudes beyond the interface. This not only prevents the card from getting stuck or breaking off, but also makes the JetDrive Lite 330 an almost invisible companion.
According to the manufacturer, the high-quality NAND technology is used, so that read speeds of up to 95 MB/s are possible, while the write speed is up to 55 MB/s. This also allows Time Machine backups to be made quickly without having to connect an external storage medium to the USB-C ports. Incidentally, the SD card is also available with 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB, whereby the 1-1 TB version is of course the highlight.
If you ever want to transport the SD card outside of your MacBook Pro, you are well protected. Transcend promises resistance to water, dust and shock. No matter where the journey with your MacBook Pro takes you. Otherwise you are well protected with the five-year manufacturer’s guarantee. You should also be able to use the JetDrive Lite 330 with older models with an SD card slot.
The card is priced at around 200 euros, while you can get the 128 GB for less than 40 euros. Although the 1 TB JetDrive Lite 330 is available now, you should be prepared for longer waiting times as it is currently not available.
