Overview: The Monster Digital Overdrive 3.0-series external Solid State Drive, or SSD, gives you high capacity storage of your digital files, and super speed, in a strong, sleek design. The SSD provides 256 GB of capacity, ideal for storing thousands of high resolution photos and Full HD video or for backing up your computer's hard drive. It requires no external power, as it operates on simple plug-in USB power. The Overdrive 3.0 SSD comes with a protective soft cloth storage pouch.

SuperSpeed USB 3.0: The Overdrive 3.0 SSD is compatible with USB 3.0 with a sequential read speed of 250MB/s and a sequential write speed of 150MB/s.

The cable tucks away into the slot around its perimeter with a magnetic catch for the USB plug. The SSB is compatible with Windows (8, 7, Vista, XP, and 2000), Mac (OS 10.2.8 or later), and Linux (Kernel 2.4.10 and later) Operating Systems, and can be used with laptops, desktops, and ultrabooks without requiring a driver.

Design: The Overdrive 3.0 SSD features a laser-etched Stainless Steel enclosure. It has a small form factor (2-3/8" wide x 5" high x 3/8" thick and 3.7 ounces) making it easily transportable in a pocket or briefcase.
