      I decided to replace our existing external (5+ year old) hard drive before it failed. When I realized that we had only used about 120GB of our 1 TB drive for regular back-ups, I decided that a smaller SSD drive would suffice. The price on this Sandisk 250GB SSD was pretty good. It is light-weight and small. Our computer recognized it right away. It was an easy switch-over.

      Can't Transfer Files Off This

      Expensive junk, when u plug it in, it says a problem with it to scan and repair, repairs dont work. You can save files to it, but when you go to transfer them off this device there are multiple interruptions saying not enough memory, everything locks up and the SanDisk closes, geek squad couldn't fix

      If you have a USB 3 port on your computer, and are looking for a very fast external SSD drive, this is for you. It’s faster than my internal 7200 rpm hard drive. Paying almost $100 for a 250gb external drive is on the high side, but if you need a fast transfer rate, this drive will do the job.

      This thing is fast. I edit video on location with this. But when I opened the package, I didn't expect it to be so small and slim! It's incredible portable and pocketable. The price is hard to justify for 250GB at $99 but im starting to vouch for it.

      I was looking for flash drives and came across this one on sale. I like the compact size, quality of build, size of storage and write speed! I have had great luck with Sandisk products from doing digital photography and this is no different! Great product!

      I couldnt believe that something so small and light could be so fast at the same time. Great design. Shame the cable isn't usb3.0 on both ends and if you lose it then, errmm, not sure how easy it will be to replace. Overall very happy with price and speed.

      When I bought a new laptop I choose one with an ssd but 250 GB was not enough foer my purpose. So I bought 2 250 GB San Disc external SSDs, one for backup and the othr for photo and video files - I am pleased with this setup!

      For the price am very impressed in low profile design, portability and speed of transferring large files. I use this as a back up for important files and am very happy with the design, performance and light weight.
