    "Good buy...So quiet....The only device I have that accepts USB-C is a Chromebook, so benchmarking was out of the question there, BUT, I can say that some rather large video files I put on the drive played without any issues....I love thumb drives and I collect portable hard drives to make backups of video and photo projects... typically I'm using the MyPassport from Western Digital."
