Jeda SSD for Tesla Model 3 & Model Y Review

Introduction

Featuring a sleek design, the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y, two of the first cars that does not rely on an internal combustion engine came onto the market. Instead, the two electric vehicles use a powerful battery that recharges quickly, but what about the storage space for dashcam and Sentry Mode clips?

I was so excited to learn a couple months ago that Jeda was working on something new to expand their product line. I thought to myself that maybe it would be a different type of Tesla product but I was in for a surprise.

This article is written to review JEDA’s new SSD for the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y.

Setup

Say hello to the Jeda SSD, the only high-speed SSD that connects to your Model 3 or Model Y USB Hub using embedded magnets.

Connecting your Jeda SSD into the USB Hub is as easy as 1-2-3. Just slide the SSD into the enclosure and the magnetic cable will automatically connect and you’re good to go

Jeda SSD Specifications

  • 256GB
  • Solid State Drive
  • Up to 540 MB/s (more on this later)
  • Input/Output: USB-C
  • $145 USD
  • BUY Jeda SSD

Made exclusively for your Tesla Model 3 or Model Y, their solid state drives improves read and write speeds when compared to general usage flash drives. All products are rigorously tested before leaving the factory.

No more cumbersome connectors and cables; the Jeda SSD connector has a quick connect and quick release mechanism.

Build Quality

The Tesla SSD shares the same die cast magnesium shell as the center screen in your Tesla, which dissipates heat and protects your SSD. The accompanying USB cable is custom-made of braided nylon and aluminum, with embedded magnets. It feels extra premium to the touch.

Benchmarks

4/9 UPDATE: I reached out to Jeda and these numbers are should be much higher. When I have received my replacement unit I will be updating the information in my review. This should be fast and solid for your Tesla Model 3 or Model Y.

Read (MB/s)Write (MBs/)
44.5944.01
44.2243.96
35.6532.90
17.9024.79

I wanted to run CrystalDiskMark on the drive and I was able to but unfortunately was only able to get the speeds pictured above with USB 3.2. I tried two different machines for these read/write tests.

Puzzled, I decided to try re-formatting the SSD to NTFS (instead of exFAT) for the filesystem and attempted this test again. Essentially the same results.

I dug into my BIOS settings for my desktop to learn that the PC builder shipped it with beta ASUS BIOS driver, Version 3202. I updated to release 3405 and re-ran the CrystalDiskMark. Same results.

Read (MB/s)Write (MBs/)
44.6544.00
44.4243.74
29.4627.44
15.5321.86

I tried an external HDD and was able to easily read 99.57MB/s and 46.47MB/s write, so it’s not something wrong with my PCs. I will have to reach out to Jeda and find out more about these speeds.

It’s recommend a minimum of 20MB/s write speed, and preferably in the 40MB/s range, so this shouldn’t be a problem for this application.

Conclusion

The Tesla SSD is the perfect solution for those who want to accelerate their Tesla storage and make more of it. I appreciate the engineering that has been incorporated into this product and how easily it fits together.

I am disappointed with the read / write speed of the SSD I received. I have reached out to Jeda and will update you as soon as I have more information on this topic.

This product comes with a total capacity of 256GB, and it is highly unlikely that you will run out of storage anytime soon.
