If you want to add a little RGB flair to your photo accessory portfolio, look no further than Lexar SL660 blazeA new SSD featuring RGB lighting and respectable speed integrated into its USB-C connection.
Lexar’s SL660 is marketed for gamers, but its 2000MB / s read and 1900MB / s write speeds provide respectable performance in a smooth, compact form factor. To achieve this speed, the drive is built around an NVMe SSD and uses a USB (Type C) 3.2 Gen 2 × 2 connection. SSD also includes 256-bit AES encryption with password protection, if you want to enable it.
The case around the SSD is made of aluminum that has been sandblasted and, presumably, an anodized gray. Integrated lighting seems to be static in nature. So, if you are hoping to be able to customize what color the light is on, you will be very disappointed because of the blue and magenta gradient that you are stuck with.
The Lexar SL660 Blaze comes with SSD drives, a USB-C to USB-C cable, a USB-C to USB-A cable, a nice little dock to hold the drive straight to your desk, and a carrying case. While it’s not the fastest SSD out there, it does offer decent performance and a colorful design for a rather reasonable price. $ 130 for 512GB model And $ 200 for 1TB model.
