It’s
been almost 18 months since I first looked at the Lexar Workflow portable SSD,
and back then it was an amazing little drive, with very good performance but
even better it had drivers that supported UASP, and you always had the option
to use it with the Lexar workflow HR1 USB3 hub and also the HR2 Thunderblolt
hub. The HR1 and HR2 hubs are very simple and quick solutions for the
professional that needs more storage together with the freedom to arrange things
to meet their needs.

By
now I am sure that all of our readers are familiar with the Lexar name and
their products, but in case you are new to them you can find out everything

Now
let’s take a look at the Lexar portable SSD, and we’ll start by examining the
packaging and its contents.

Packaging

The first thing that has changed is the packaging, this time it’s not as
elegant as the previous one, but it still has a very clean look and offers all
the info that you’d want on the front of the box..

Inside
you will find the 512GB portable SSD, and a USB3 cable that is thankfully very
long, close to 110cm.

The front of the Lexar 512GB portable SSD
looks identical to the previous drive that I tested, it continues to have six LEDs,
and the first five are white ones that are also used to give an optical
indication of the used capacityThe last LED is a blue one
that shows when the drive is powered on and also flashes when the
drive is writing or reading data.
