Sony Expands High Speed Storage Lineup with Enhanced Hard Disk Drives
Highly reliable new USB Type-A/ Type-C Dual Interface Models for Professionals, PSZ-HC1T and PSZ-HC2T, offer improved speed and convenience

(SINGAPORE, 2 June 2017) – Sony’s newest hard disk drives expand its growing line of portable storage devices, delivering faster speeds, greater connectivity, increased reliability and enhanced durability. The new 1TB and 2TB HDDs are designed for any professional use requiring memory card backup and ingest in the field or office, including education, corporate, government, broadcast and production applications.

Improving on Sony’s previous HDDs, the new dual interface models support USB Type-A connectivity using a tethered cable to ensure no cables are lost, in addition to a USB Type-C port, ideal for memory card backup in the field.  The increasingly high speed drives are pre-formatted in exFAT, and allow for data transfer up to 138MB/s (read/write). 

The rugged shuttle drives’ rubber damper design offers increased durability, making it shock resistant and capable of withstanding a drop of up to 6.5 feet.  The HDDs are splash resistant (IPX4 rating) and dust resistant (IP5X rating).  The drives are specially designed with a silicon lid protecting the connection terminals from dust and water. The PSZ-HC1T and PSZ-HC2T come packaged in a sturdy library box for additional protection during shipping or storage.

Sony’s free Memory Media Utility software, available for download at, offers additional protection by providing a record/rewrite life indicator, simultaneous content backup to multiple destinations, a re-formatting tool and more.

The new HDDs, models PSZ-HC1T (1TB) and PSZ-HC2T (2TB) will be available at all Sony authorised dealers from July 2017.
