    "I love this thing...Speed is super fast...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 almost got the T2 just because everyone and their Mom uses that drive but I wanted something a lot more durable since it has a nice rubberized outside"

    "I love this drive...I have no regrets...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"
