Western Digital has unveiled a slew of brand new 4TB hard drives at CES 2021. The first of these is the SanDisk Extreme Pro, which we recently reviewed in its 1TB form. "With added capacity, I have even more freedom to continue creating incredible content".

The 4TB storage variants of SanDisk Extreme Pro Portable SSD, SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD, WD Black P50 Game Drive SSD, and My Passport SSD, introduced by Western Digital, will be available at select retailers and the Western Digital Store when they go on sale sometime during the current quarter.

If you're a gamer, then look no further than the new WD_Black P50 Game Drive SSD.

The SanDisk Extreme Pro portable SSD can reach read and write speeds of 2000 megabytes per second, has an aluminum chassis and will be available soon for $ 749.99. Sticking with the shipping container motif, the drive can hit read and write capacities of up to 2,000 MB/s and when available later this quarter it will retail for $US750 ($967). This one is also water and dust resistant, rated at IP55. Unlike Western Digital's other portable SSD solutions the My Passport 4TB SSD is available in four colour options including grey, blue, silver, and red, and is promised to survive drops from up to six-and-a-half feet. It has read speeds of up to 1050MBps and write speeds of up to 1000MBps. Created to be "shock and vibration resistant", My Passport is also drop resistant up to 6.5 feet/1.98m.

Blazing fast NVMe technology with read speeds of up to 1050 MB/s and write speeds of up to 1000 MB/s enables everyday content creators, curators and hobbyists to keep productivity flowing. Pricing is set at £745.99, with availability again slated for later this quarter.

Western Digital is a name that will be familiar to nearly everyone with an interest in the PC hardware sector, and the company also owns SanDisk which it acquired back in 2016. The Sandisk line of products however has always been released next to the.
