  • Light Speed, Less headache
    Reviewed by LSRSCN - April 1, 2019

    One of these drives showed up in the office with a friend exclaiming "This thing is as fast as your internal SSD!". Upon testing, it is just as fast as my internal SSD, occasionally breaking the 2,300 Mbs range. We work on massive files, creating 3D imagery with laser scans and 1,000+ photos, with projects regularly breaching 250 GB. Working solely on an internal drive is a joke, as I often fill it within a week. With this new external advancement, I can work hassle free on any project, and easily hand it off to the next person for further processing. Buy this drive. It is well worth the money.

  • Portable and SUPER Fast!
    Reviewed by VanessaKat17 - January 3, 2019

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Holy smokes! This little guy has really impressed me as well as my son who is an AVID techie! I use mine with a Microsoft PC and it is nearly flawless both in design and functionality. I am actually getting 3 MBps at times. Normally, however, I run at about 2.7 MBps. Which is just perfect for me and for everyday use. The quality is what I noticed first thing. This is extremely durable and has a nice bit of weight to it. Not heavy enough to be cumbersome or clunky, just enough to tell the craftsmanship is there. Samsung boasts a 6 foot drop range, but it's a bit pricey for me to be able to put that claim to the test! Overall, I am very pleased. If there was a drawback, it would be that my son can't use this with his MacBook. But for me, it is almost perfect. Bravo!

  • Good memory drive
    Reviewed by Shrek81 - December 27, 2018

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Samsung SSD X5 1TB drive has plenty of speed to save or retrieve files. The drive is a compact size and be easily carried in a case or pocket . Because it is a solid state drive, it is fast. Files read and write quickly. The only downside to this drive is that your computer has to have a port that is "Thunderbolt " compatible. Not all computers have this compatability. Be sure to check the compatability that Samsung provides. Overall, I feel this is a good ssd drive.
