Quality


The build quality is superb and the case has a hefty premium feel.

Positive Review

Great build quality love that it’s a metal case.

Positive Review

0 port for gaming, you likely won’t be happy with the results.

Neutral Review

I have to start with the fact that i'm using this one now, for a standard back-up drive, because our family's gamer gave it back.

Neutral Review

Price


The price is a steep compared to traditional drives, but this is likely to last much longer, so in the long run it probably balances out.

Neutral Review

Shipping


I do not have it but the drive was fast, faster than other ssds in my possession.

Positive Review

Quite frankly, i don't find any slowdown and loading times are as fast as ever.

Positive Review

Interestingly, the barracuda fast had slightly higher read at 413.

Neutral Review

I have a drive that is over twice as fast as this.

Neutral Review

Packaging/appearance


It is good to go right out of the box.

Neutral Review

Competitiveness


It is smaller and lighter than other 1tb external usb hard drives that i own.

Positive Review

However, as compared to nvme drives, this is not the fastest drive i have used nor is it the fastest external drive.

Positive Review

This is quite a bit slower than 2000 mb/s, making it a bad fit for the costs.

When installing this drive on my ps4 (also works with my xbox, but i already have one of these, the 4tb model, on it) it is sim...  Read More

    Compared to standard ssd’s it is on average twice as fast and not even worth comparing to a physical drive.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    This drive claims to perform at 20 gbps which would be 2500 mb/s.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Note that the speed claim is footnoted and states this was internal testing.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    There is no doubt that if this is using a standard nvme drive, it can theoretically get 20gb/s.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    I could be wrong, but i believe the description should be 20 gbps and not gb/s.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Either way this drive is not achieving the quoted speed.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    In any event, if you are coming from a slower drive than this, this would be a great upgrade at the price.
