A Quick Look At The Crucial X9 Pro And X10 Pro Portable SSDs

A Sturdier Solution To Portable Storage

Thumb drives are OK, though they tend to die if neglected and can do horrendous damage to a USB port if you happen to forget you have one plugged in.  The Crucial X9 Pro and X10 Pro on the other hand will keep on ticking, even if the drink you tucked into your bag happens to spill.   The performance of the X9 Pro is dead on with the advertised speed and is highly recommended for anyone.

The X10 Pro on the other hand requires a proper USB 3.2 Gen-2 2×2 interface, lacking that you will see speeds similar to the X9 Pro.  You should keep this in mind when you are shopping, if the device you intend to pair the X10 Pro lacks 2×2 connectivity you are better off going with the X9 Pro. Hopefully I will be able to get my hands on a way to properly retest the X10 Pro.

If your computer, camera or other device does have that interface you will be doubling the transfer speeds for a small premium in the price.  That speed will mean the difference between 4K 60FPS video and 4K 120FPS video, not to mention saving you a lot of time copying the files back and forth.  These are a great addition to your go bag, and are definitely recommended.
