    27" iMac internal HDD to external T7 SSD (Novice)

    After debating on whether or not to completely replaced my late 2013 27" iMac and spending an exorbitant amount of time on Reddit and YouTube looking at the benefits of internal versus external SSDs. I decided against tearing the screen off of my iMac (why do you make it so hard Apple) and reconfiguring my boot disk to run off of an SSD. How did I choose this SSD? Honestly, impatience. I think the Samsung T5 would've worked just as well, given that the late 2013 iMac has thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.0/A. While the T7 is built to run super fast, I am capped out via the USB C to USB A compatibility. Also, I "needed" 2TB worth of storage, (I've been using 1TB since 2013 and I've used about 60% of it, so the need is relative and in my mind), and there wasn't a huge difference in the cost point of the T5 2TB and the T7 2B. Plus T7 was available same day and T5 had "unavailable to deliver." The install. I know it semi sounds like I know what I am doing, let me assure you - I do not. This is the first time I have made any changes and I was terrified.. but I had disk speeds in the teens and I am heavy into research and frequently have 6-7 different applications running. It was super easy. You literally plug the SSD in, wipe it, and copy your HDD over (I used carbon copy software). For me, given my 1TB HDD, it took about 4 hours. Afterwards, my disk speeds had increased from 30 to 4-500 MB/s. Well below what this SSD is rated for but once again - external SSD through a USB 3.0 and not through the thunderbolt 2. That being said - it's like a new computer. Restarts take 20-30 seconds from start to finish versus the 5-7 minutes. Applications open instantly. I can play world of warcraft on one screen while studying on another. This is a lifesaver and saved me an incredible amount of money. I would highly recommend to any novice looking to extend the life of earlier model iMacs whose HDDs are behind the glass screens. I've also bought 32GB of RAM from MacSales to replace the 8GB but it has not been delivered. I cannot see how it could improve my performance further, but we will see. Attached are the new disk speeds, this is with 9 different applications running not including World of Warcraft which is open on my second screen. Also - Don't be fooled if you google "Samsung T7 SSD iMac" and see people saying that the it will not connect to iMac, it connected just fine straight out of the box. They probably reformatted it wrong. Go to youtube, watch videos. If I can do it - you can too!

    Simple, Elegant, Well Made and Stores Data Quickly

    Having recently purchased a brand new MacBook Pro M1 Pro with 1TB SSD, I wanted a really good external SSD for Time Machine Backups. I already own a much smaller Samsung SSD which has served me really well for the last few years. So I knew in advance the Samsung T7 2TB would be the perfect choice for the task at hand. It's simply amazing you can get portable SSD drives with so much real and usable storage, for the price of admission in this T7. It came nicely packaged with every you need, including a little owners manual and a high quality USB C to USB C cable. This drive is incredibly fast and was able to download hundreds of gigabytes of data quickly. It's built to the best standards with durable thermal construction, which Samsung says defends against impact or overheating. Out of the box, it was recognized on my new MacBook and using Disc Utility, I formatted it appropriately for a Mac (using APFS) and while data is downloading, the little Blue LED blinks to let you know data is being accepted, then turns solid blue when the data transfer is complete. You can password protect the drive and it includes 256-BIT AES hardware encryption, which scrambles data to make it nearly impossible to hack. It's small, elegant, incredibly well made, protects your data and simply couldn't be easier to use. If you've ever lost data before, you know how awful the feeling. This T7 SSD from Samsung will ensure I can never lose data. For the money, I simply can't recommend this enough.

    Fast, Easy Plug and Go, Quality

    Pros + small and portable + fast + easy setup + user-friendly (plug and go) Cons - very smooth (which could be prone to sliding and falling if not on a flat/leveled surface) - would be nice if it had a feature or warning that this device is overheating (haven't had this issue yet, but it would be nice to know if it starts to overheat) If any company out there could make a simple silicone case/wrap to give it some grip and added protection on the corners and edges, to avoid sliding or slipping out your fingers, that would be a great compliment to this device. Overall the product is solid and works great with no issues yet. Quality for the price, will be buying more in the future.
