  • Great and speedy extra PS5 storage
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Jacob - 29 avril 2021

    So far so good for the PS5! I have only had this drive for a few days now but it has worked great for additional game storage on my PS5. The transfer speeds are amazing, making it super easy and quick to move games back and forth. I have not tried to run games off of it so I can't speak to that experience fully, but I'll assume it's just fine. The drive does get a bit toasty when moving games to/from. But nothing harmful in my experience and nothing warmer than what a usb drive may get when moving large files around. Overall, I'm really satisfied with this drive for my use case.

  • Drive is fast however case is fragile
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Texan - 23 août 2021

    The drive itself is as fast as you would expected for a first gen usb 3.1 SSD. Doing some speed testing I am getting around 400MB/s reads and writes. The drive itself aside the build quality of the case is pretty terrible. This drive sits on top of my computer or goes into a separate pocket of my backpack. After a few weeks of sitting on top of my computer with nothing else around it, I go to pick up the drive to put in my backpack and the case just falls apart. I snapped it back together and it held for another few uses before again it fell apart. After doing this for a few days I ended up wrapping it in some scotch tape and calling it a day since it did in fact still work. With the tape the case stays together now just fine.

  • So Far impressed
    Reviewed by Shiven - 7 février 2021

    I bought this SSD yesterday and I have only had it for one day. I read online that this gets very hot during use, however in my use-case it did not get hot at all. It was a little warm (very little) while moving 100gb data. I transfer 20gb in 30seconds on thunderbolt 3 MacBook Air. And transferred 80gb on usb 3.0 computer (windows 10) in 20minutes... in disk benchmark I got speeds around 900mbps. A little below marketed speed however, it probably is my MacBook. It is still pretty fast. It is super small and easy to hold. Just to put in perspective it has the same width as MacBook Air trackpad and width is 60% of MacBook trackpad. One thing to note is, it's made of aluminum which may slip out of hand quickly. Luckily you get 5years of warranty and 6.5ft drop protection. It probably will get easily scratched. I would recommend waiting for a deal and then purchasing it.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
