    "But that's about the extent of my disappointment with the drive. Yes, it's apparently only SSD, and I can confirm I was getting about 1,075 MB/s (In contrast to my 8TB NVMe drive with Thunderbolt 4 enclosure that's 3 times as fast but cost about twice as much.) ...Using the included USB-C cable, connected to a Thunderbolt 4 port on my laptop, the SanDisk Desk Drive achieved 1077.14 MB/s on a sequential read test.
