ADATA Technology a leading manufacturer and supplier of high performance DRAM, NAND Flash products, and mobile accessories has today unveiled a new addition to their range of external SSD solid state drives, with the launch of the ADATA SD700 Durable External 3D NAND SSD.

ADATA explains a little more :
