Teamgroup T-Force M200 4TB External SSD Revealed
The T-Force M200 is the latest portable SSD from TeamGroup that is well designed, reasonably fast, and spacious. The light-weight SSD drive of 83 gr is available in 2TB, 4TB, and in 8TB capacities. It’s not the biggest SSD out there, but it has a decent size (105 x 56 x 11mm).
Teamgroup's designers sought inspiration for the M200 SSD from the military (presumably because it’s an external storage device that is aimed at adrenaline-filled gamers). One could even argue that the Teamgroup T-Force M200 looks a lot like the detachable box magazine of the CheyTac M200, the longest range sniper rifle in the world.
Teamgroup mentioned the use of a patented graphene cooling technology with a dual metal structure to increase cooling surfaces and ensure stable data transmission. Unfortunately, the M200 SSD doesn’t have an IP-rating to be water resistant, but it has been tested to withstand falls of 2m on a carpeted floor without impacting stored data. There’s also a gap – which Teamgroup calls a hanging hole - which serves the same purpose as the carabiner in the Extreme Pro range. You get two reasonably long cables as well.
The device uses a full size M.2 NVMe SSD coupled with a Phison E16 controller and an ASMedia ASM2364 USB Bridge. it uses QLC NAND (from Crucial) and can reach read/write speeds of up to 3.4GBps/3GBps, far higher than what USB 3.2 Gen2x2 can achieve – TeamGroup claims speeds of up to 2GBps on read/write.
The Teamgroup T-Force M200 4TB External SSDs offer wide compatibility with gaming consoles – they support multiple platforms, such as desktop/laptop computers, PlayStation, Xbox game console. The M200 SSDs also come with 5-year limited warranty, but unfortunately, SSD failure can make critical user files inaccessible.
