September 20, 2023 Andrew Cheng

If you’re in the market for a new external SSD, consider the new Kingston XS1000. Not only is it very compact and lightweight – it tips the scales at only 29g – the XS1000 is also quite affordable here in Malaysia.

Two capacities of the XS1000 are offered. There’s the base 1TB variant for RM279.99, while the 2TB option is priced at RM489.99. We got these prices from Shopee Preferred store HPSS.OS, and its listings are some of the most affordable we managed to find.

The portable nature of the XS1000 is certainly one of its best selling points, and it also offers read speeds of up to 1,050MBps. In fact, Kingston says that this is the smallest external SSD in the market now with this level of read speeds. Of course, it also comes with a USB-C to USB-A cable.

The Kingston XS1000 can now be purchased in Malaysia from various retailers. Backed with a limited five-year warranty with free technical support, every purchase of selected Kingston products (including the XS1000) locally by 15 October earns you an entry to a lucky draw. Some of the prizes offered include a Dyson air purifier and a GoPro Hero 11.
