The ASUS ROG Strix Arion probably needs no further introduction. It is a premium SSD enclosure that features Aura Sync and also an aluminum chassis that helps cool the drive within. The ROG Strix Arion S500 now comes bundled with a fast 500GB Phison NVMe SSD, letting you enjoy speeds of up to 1050MB/s, or about 12X faster than your average external HDD.

Phison’s SSD features DRAM memory for reliability and performance, as well as a large SLC cache for higher sustained write speeds. To keep performance up, the ROG Strix Arion S500 features internal thermal pads to transfer the heat from the SSD to the aluminum-alloy chassis to ensure optimal performance over extended periods while also prolonging the lifespan of the SSD.

For security, the ROG Strix Arion S500 supports 256-bit AES disk encryption. You can take advantage of the included NTI Backup Now EZ software to protect your data from viruses and hardware failure for additional peace of mind. The software also offers a data recovery feature, that will be helpful in the event that you accidentally deleted some important files.

The ROG Strix Arion S500 connects via a USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) Type-C interface, making it compatible with most recent desktop, laptops as well as the latest consoles and mobile devices. You can pre-order the ROG Strix Arion S500 at RM559 from Shopee and Lazada this 9.9.

Pokdepinion: Seems like quite a good deal since the empty ROG Strix Arion costs about RM249 by itself.
