    I bought this SSD for extra storage on my Xbox. This drive is incredibly fast, I’m able to transfer a 110gb game in about 6 minutes. It came in the original box and literally looked brand new.

    Refurb and it was barely used. Geek Squad may have used this to fix and clean in store PCs then listed as a refurb once they didn’t need it anymore. Or someone returned it right after buying. Try it out, look up the logs and more than likely you’ll be surprised to find this gem. Does load and work with any game I’ve tried so far at a fast speed.

    Drive had 23 hours on it and 1.3 TB of writes and was not formatted. Formated in windows no issues. Not sure how its encryption works though. Maybe it had some software on it at one time. I did not have a PC with USB C data port but tested it on a USB 3.0 (not 3.1) port and got 270 MB/sec writes (From computer SSD to this USB) 400MB/sec Reads (copying from this SSD to a computer with SSD Fast enough for me, I would do better with a usb C to C cable on a computer (Like a MAC, or win10 PC with the port)

    Refurbished Hard Drive?

    I was skeptical about buying a refurbished item, especially a hard drive, but the discount was tempting. So I pulled the trigger and bought this thing. The packaging was a little messed up, and you could easily tell that this wasn't brand new. However, when I opened the box, the Hard drive was in very good condition. No visible Scratches or exterior damage. It came with two cables: A USB-C to USB-C cable, and a USB-C to USB-A cable. I'm not sure if they're the OEM cables, but I tested them both and they worked just fine. The hard drive itself was just as advertised. It plugged into my mac and my windows PC after I partitioned the drive, and worked flawlessly for data transfer. So far I haven't had any issues with it. Would buy again.

    Works perfectly fine. May have a few scratches but those will come with time anyway. I purchased it to expand my storage on the series x for $74 and it hasn't let me down so far.

    Best Portable SSD

    It is surprisingly small, but still very powerful. For setup, you have to do some formatting, but watching a how-to video helps. I got this because I needed more storage for programs on a laptop.

    Saw this SSD for a very good price especially for a Samsung T7. Needed something small and this fit the bill. It transfers speeds at a very fast speed and so worth it. It was refurb but you couldn't tell because it looked flawless.

    Buying a refurbished ext ssd hardrive is good deal for the price. Initially, it was not recognized when i booted up, thinking defective already? With some fiddling around on my computer on installing hardrives, i was able to figure out and get it formatted, then it was recognized. So far so good, working find and dandy! Refurbish items, taking a gamble on its durability always, but price is reasonable.

    I bought the Samsung T7 external SSD drive to store video in my Tesla (vehicle). This SSD drive works well at storing video. However, you have to be careful not to drop it or else the video and data will get corrupted. This is my second T7 because my first one got dinged and lost all of the video footage from my car.
