CalDigit 512GB Tuff Nano USB-C NVMe SSD Portable Hard Drive (Black)

A CalDigit Tuff Nano lifestyle image showing a Tuff Nano plugged into a laptop with an iPad and student workbooks atop a desk.


The black CalDigit 512GB Tuff Nano USB-C NVMe SSD Portable Hard Drive is a mini portable bus-powered USB-C storage device with an internal PCIe SSD, that’s small enough to fit in your pocket, whilst providing outstanding read and write speeds unmatched by anything in its class. Read Speed: 1055MB/s – Capacity: 512GB and 1024GB


Let’s face it when traveling you need a compact storage solution that doesn’t take up too much space in a bag, a case, or even your pocket. The Tuff nano is less than half the size of an iPhone making it the perfect travel companion.


By utilizing the latest USB-C technology, the Tuff nano is compatible with any computer that features Thunderbolt™ 3, USB-C, USB-A or even future USB4™ ports.


The CalDigit Tuff Nano is one of the best external drives we’ve used. It’s small, well built and very fast – it even has an IP67 rating! With a read speed of 1055 MB/s, it’s fast enough to edit 4K footage directly from the drive, and rugged enough to withstand 3M drops, dust and even being fully immersed in water up to 1M for 30 minutes. Overall, we feel the CalDigit Tuff Nano to be a worthy addition to the Pro Zone.

Who’s It For?

Although it’s great for editing, NVMe drives still don’t have much capacity, and the Tuff Nano offers no redundancy, so it’s not ideal for bigger projects. We feel the Nano is perfect for fast transfers on set, done by DITs, DMTs and camera operators, as well as moving files between post facilities, edit suites and production offices. It’s also a perfect drive for visual effects artists, animators, motion graphic artists and photographers.
