    "Good buy...the best...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....This drive is overkill for that application, but: if you want a high-quality, external SSD drive that will survive, and is fast enough to behave as a main drive... or if you spend your life backing things up and could use the extra oomph this drive can provide, this is where to start."

    "It Works...I like it....I'm sure on a USB 3.1 with more bandwidth I'd have gotten a better transfer, but like I said this performance on USB 3.0 is good enough that for me, it acts like an internal drive and I don't notice any issues since I have started hosting my VM's on it....This gives me the peace of mind to know that if I perhaps missed a backup or know that I had recently added a bunch of files that I would want, that I could get them in record time after popping this thing out of the safe."
