While it's not the smallest drive out there, The SSD Review notes that the SSD2go pocket "takes up minimal space" and Forbes says it's even "smaller than most SSDs you’d find in PCs or laptops" and more than lives up to its "pocket" moniker. That small stature also includes a robust build, with The SSD Review finding the SSD2go pocket "capable of taking all the abuse you can give it." Angelbird even took the durability of the USB port into consideration, choosing a normal-sized port over a micro-USB connection as the former can "handle ten times the amount of plug and unplug cycles."
As tough as the SSD2go pocket's build is, the real reason to grab one is for its class-leading speeds, with The SSD Review noting they're "much higher" than the competition and Forbes found it to be possibly "the fastest external storage device I’ve ever tested."
Angelbird might not be a marquee brand in the data storage business, but products like the SSD2go pocket offer enough performance and build quality to put it ahead of its more well-known competitors.
