Always keep your personal data with you, and if the case falls, does it matter? Asus now has an external SSD specifically for gamers TUF Gaming AS1000 Provided with a capacity of 1 terabyte. The sturdy body and advanced cooling system provide double safety.
Aluminum alloy body
The case measures 125 x 54 x 13 mm and weighs 157 grams. This makes a good piece not particularly light, but the aluminum alloy body and cooling system simply weigh a bit more. A heat pad is used for cooling. This cooling system should save a few extra points, especially in continuous operation.
Otherwise, the housing is IP68 certified. Dust, dirt and moisture should not harm the SSD. At the same time, the Asus TUF Gaming AS1000 should not bother with a short immersion in water or a fall from a height. For the latter event, the case has even been tested via MIL-STD-810H.

The SSD should not only be compatible with PCs, but also with existing consoles like PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series.
