We are here with a new product review, is the VAVA Portable SSD Touch with Fingerprint Encryption. Today, computer technologies and hardware cannot show significant improvement, especially in terms of processor and RAM, with silicon-based chips approaching the limit on the speed side. We don’t see giant leaps in performance among processor generations. However, there are solutions for users who want to speed up their computers, mostly Windows startup speed, performance in navigating the operating system, shortening of loading screens in games, and stability. Undoubtedly, SSDs are at the top of these solutions.
Among all technological accessories over the years, portable storage is one of the things that has changed the most. Ten years ago, slow, massive, fragile hard drives were the only options for backing up large amounts of data on the road. People always had to carry one with them.
Portable solid-state drives (SSDs) completely changed the game. Much faster, smaller, and lighter than a conventional hard drive, these drives are much more reliable due to the absence of moving parts. Like everything else in technology, the price, which was extremely expensive when it first hit the market. It has dropped significantly over time.
This is where the VAVA Portable SSD comes into play. How well does this small, lightweight device work in practice with little monsters that fit in your pocket? In addition to all these, this maximum-security SSD also offers its users the opportunity of fingerprint lock.
