[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Axtremex today announced its 45-day Indiegogo campaign to complete the development of their light and speedy Micro SSD. Made from solid zinc and weighing just 58 grams, the Axtremex Micro SSD is twice as fast as a standard USB 3.0 drive, twenty times faster than a USB 2.0 drive and holds up to a terabyte of data in a package no bigger than a credit card.
The Axtremex Micro SSD comes highly recommended, with Macworld Magazine giving the preproduction model 5 stars and it's Editors Choice award. PC Advisor awarded the Micro SSD 4.5 stars and called it a "long-awaited storage device... an easy recommendation for Mac users."
* 58g in weight
* Made from solid zinc
* 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, 1TB
* USB 3.1: 10Gbps (2x faster than USB 3.0, 20x faster than USB 2.0)
* USB Type-C: The new standard, perfect for the new MacBook, ChromeBook Pixel and more
Yameen Malik, the creator of the Axtremex MicroSSD, says: "As soon as I saw USB 3.1 Type-C I knew it was the future. Rather than just waiting for someone else to create a product I wanted now, I took matters into my own hands and built the Micro SSD for me. Hopefully with this indiegogo campaign everyone else will get to enjoy this technology too."
Starting at 128GB for $150 (USD) and going all the way to 1TB, the Micro SSD comes in a variety of sizes for all budgets. Axtremex also offer a $50 (Early Bird pricing) drive-less DIY kit for customers with a spare mSATA drive who want a portability and speed upgrade. Upon a successful campaign Axtremex will take the Micro SSD to mass market, starting at $50 for the DIY kit and shipping in October.
