    I researched many reviews (including YouTube) and found nearly 100% favorable comments. Turns out Best Buy had it on sale and I had a few certificate dollars to apply. That said, it has paired nicely with my new 27" iMac. I'm working on a vacation video for my travel crew and couldn't believe how fast 900 or so digital photos were quickly transferred. It is small and I like the big storage and speed. I'm using it as a drive to pair with 512 SSD internal in my iMac. My tech friend at work suggested this item but warned that it is pricier than the competition. I feel I made the right choice no matter the price.

    I bought this portable drive because I like editing videos and my laptop does not have enough space for all the video files that I have created. This drive is small enough that you can conveniently carry it around in your laptop bag and I am able to transfer files in as well as out of the drive very quickly which improve my productivity. Great investment.

    Purchased one of these tiny 1TB powerhouse drives for my new iMac. It's nice because you get the super fast SSD connection and can just velcro to the back of the computer to keep it out of sight. Much faster than mechanical external drives. And far cheaper than paying expensive prices to apple for a bigger internal SSD.

    I forget i have this sometimes. It's small, out of the way, and of course makes no noise being SSD. I use it with my 27" iMac for a total of 1.5TB and can transfer and store any files very quickly. I create lots of media projects using Adobe apps. Photos, video, etc. The price keeps coming down, too.

    This is actually my second USB 3.1 SSD to use with a MacBook Pro retina. The first add 512 GB of storage and work great but was from a company called lecture. Was looking for a larger drive to use for video editing on the go Came across this device on sale and it has been great to use so far.

    Purchased this drive as a present for my IT son. He LOVES it! The T5 allows him to store enormous code files in a non-mechanical environment. It's small, compact, and versatile. Perfect for the commuting culture working the Silicon Hills of downtown San Francisco.

    This external is hands down the best external I’ve purchased. Easy to format for Mac or windows. The price is up there but this is clearly for dedicated people and easy portability. Fast file transfer and fastest back up I’ve seen

    Samsung did a great job with this external Solid State drive. I researched many options before purchasing this one and have no regrets. I think I bought the best available which is important to me for reliability in protecting saved files.
