Transcend once again takes external hard drives to the next level with its stylish new portable solid-state drive. Just announced, the SSD18M is available in a small 1.8-inch size, measuring 3 inches long by 2 inches wide and draped in a chic black "gloss diamond pattern" exterior.

Unlike other external hard drives that rely on moving parts and an actual disk, solid-state hard drives work on NAND flash memory that eliminates the possibility of damage because of vibration and shock. In addition, you also get the added benefit of weight savings, power consumption, and portability thanks to its lack of internal moving parts. This model gives supports eSATA as well as USB 2.0 interfaces for connectivity, ensuring flexibility across almost all notebook and desktop PCs.

The Transcend SSD18M eSATA drive is available now in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities. No word yet on pricing.
