  • Great Data Drives, not as Startup Drive on Macs.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by js114 - December 5, 2020

    This bare drive is connected externally via a SATA3 to USB3 cable to a Late 2012 Mac Mini that already has a Crucial 500gb SSD. I migrated all of my iTunes library to the Samsung because it most people find the SSDs perform best at under 80% capacity. I wouldn't use the Samsung as a startup drive on the Mac from past experience, but as a data drive, that Samsung performs great. As with most SSDs, if they don't fail off the bat, they tend to work well. The Samsung has more than adequate buffer space so GarageBand runs fast, especially when mix'ing a track down. Getting the drive on sale and with a discount coupon just made it a screaming deal.

  • Compact, light-weight, and super fast
    Verified BuyerReviewed by James - June 29, 2021

    I found the T7 500GB (Blue) to be fantastic for backing up my files and quickly transferring media files. I had around 350GB of data to backup and was able to get an average of about 750 MBps (had both small files and large media files). Pros: - Super small and lightweight - Excellent speeds (vastly outperforms HDDs) - Two cables provided (USB-C to USB-C & USB-C to USB-A) Cons: - Software for encryption requires installation on each computer you wish to unlock drive on (only if you encrypt using Samsung's software) - Software requires admin rights on computer to run (you may not be able to use the drive on a public computer if encrypted)

  • Amazing Speed
    Reviewed by Mike1wilson - December 11, 2018

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was in the market for purchasing a solid state drive for my Mac Book Pro, as the speed and performance wasn't the same as when it was new. It had an optical drive that came with it, so after doing research on the Samsung, I decided to give it a try. The Installation was easy and fast. Everything booted fine, but this time at lighting speeds. The drive performed above and beyond my expectations and saved me from purchasing another Mac Book Pro . Not only on the boot time, but moving from files to files as well. Having many pages opened up on line or on the drive, it handled well. I'm one happy customer and recommend this drive with an A+.
