    Transcend StoreJet 500 reviews

    512GB StoreJet 500 Portable Solid State Drive for Mac is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best External Hard Drive This Transcend 512GB SSD holds my priority photo and video projects. I am able to work on projects between my home 2010 Mac Pro with Sonnet USB 3.0 pic card, travel 2011 MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt (no USB 3.0), and occasional parents' 2013 iMac. I can connect using Thunderbolt or USB 3.0 and I always get high transfer data rates. Connecting via Thunderbolt frees another USB port. The design and color matched my Mac Pro and MacBook Pro. The price was a little higher than I would have liked to pay, but it is well worth it. I no longer need my Kanex Thunderbolt to USB 3.0 adapter. I think I will need another one of these soon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New life for an older Mac I decided to try to revitalize my 2011 iMac by using this SSD as a boot disc. I figured the Thunderbolt connection might be slower than the internal bus, but I read good things about the drive (here and on other sites), so I figured I'd give it a chance. I have been really happy with the results. Programs start much more quickly, and files that used to take a while to open now pop right up on the screen. But the biggest difference is how long it takes the computer to restart. After cloning the internal disc to this one I restarted the iMac -- first with the internal drive and then with this SSD. The old disc took four minutes and five seconds to get me to a desktop with all drives mounted (and even then I wasn't able to open folders for another 30 seconds or so). The Transcend drive got me to the same point in 24 seconds! And I could open folders immediately. Overall, I find the difference worth every penny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish, robust, fast SSD I'm a composer and I bought this SSD to store my music sample libraries on. These are large files and I needed something with good read speeds. They load into projects insanely fast and there is never a glitch in the libraries' performance. It's a stylish looking drive and fits in well with my mac based studio. The case feels robust as does the Thunderbolt connector. I've only been working with this drive for a few days but I'm pleased with it so far. It is a huge improvement on my previous mechanical drives.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast read speed but much slower write speed I was disappointed when I found out the write speed is half the read speed. I was using this for backing up media on a shoot. It still is fast for that, but not as good as other options. For editing, however, it's awesome! And it is a very good value for the capacity.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Lots of space in a tiny, light and attractive package. 55 GB transfer took about 15 minutes via a Thunderbolt port. Be aware, for a SSD without moving parts, it gets pretty darn warm during those larger transfers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome product! Works flawlessly! I had trouble burning videos to dvd on my mac mini due to insufficient memory. This solved that problem! More than enough space for my videos and photos. Thank you B&H!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Product So far It's fast, compact, easy to carry and works great so far. I've only had a few weeks, but based on that limited experience I would recommend it. I'm using the thunderbolt connection.
