    I was wary of the drive being compatible with my Galaxy and my Surface, as I am using it effectively as a transfer drive and a storage device while traveling. I was worried for nothing. Being a USB C, the transfer rates are unreal, and being an SSD the data is as bulletproof as possible. Only reason not to get one is if you wanted more memory.

  • Perfect for my needs

    Skim and lightweight. Fast. Great for my needs.

    I had tried various "High Speed" USB thumb drives for my dash camera. I had stepping and dropped cameras and just assumed it was growing pains of the car. I then switched to this drive and all the issues went away. For the cost this is way more cost effective than the USB thumb drives that seemed to have a high fail rate. If you have the room this is a much better solution that a thumb drive.
