Colorful Technology Company Limited revealed its latest SSD solution, in the form of the SL500 Mini SSD.

The miniscule drive features the standard power and data connectors found on regular 2.5-inch SSDs, but the SL500 is only a whopping 26% the size of a standard 2.5-inch SSD. It weighs a mere 2 grams and measures 26x68x7mm. Its ultra-small size makes it perfect for laptops as well as other small-form-factor PCs where space is limited.

The SL500 Mini SSD is an SDP (SATA Disk in Package), which integrates the main controller and flash chips into one compact module. Available in capacities of 250GB and 500GB, it features read/write speeds of 400/500MB/s (250GB) and 480/500MB/s (500GB). The drive is mostly fit for industrial applications, as it resistant to high temperatures, humidity, and vibration in typical harsh environments.
