  • Fast and compact
    Reviewed by Honva - January 17, 2020

    Very fast throughput with type-c generation 2 usb. Good price when on sale. I use it to upgrade my old iMac's (late 2013 model) hard drive. Connect to the old USB 3.0 port to run Catalina as external drive. Only took 20min to copy existing OS to it and switch boot drive. Saw amazing speed increase (at least 5x faster). Now app lunch is almost instant. Could be faster with internal ssd upgrade but using this external drive is much simpler and quicker save cutting open the iMac case. Speed is adequate and have the benefit of retaining the original internal drive as data drive. Cheap and quick way to upgrade an old iMac.

  • Fast, but runs very hot and cable is finicky.
    Reviewed by badplastics - July 6, 2020

    Feels like you could fry an egg on the metal heatsink when it has a heavier workload (such as Time Machine backups). I've also noticed that the drive can lose connection simply by accidentally tapping either end of the USB-C cable connector, which could definitely lead to data corruption — this is after two months of pretty mild use. Not my favourite drive. Decent value for what you get I suppose, but I'm really looking forward to the day when solid state finally drops in price.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
