The Elements desktop hard drive is basic USB 3.0 plug-and-play external storage that works with Windows PCs out of the box and can be easily reformatted for Mac.

This is a speedy little card that you can use in your Chromebook, Nintendo Switch, phone or tablet. It’s even fast enough to use for recording 4K UHD-resolution video with your GoPro or other action cams as well as your drone. Need a full-size SD card or SSD instead? Lexar has those discounted, too, in addition to other storage capacities for its microSD cards.
Slot this into your gaming PC or laptop to speed up your performance while increasing your storage for movies, music, photos and games. I guess you could store docs and spreadsheets on it, too, if you have to.
