Faster than any HDD...

Faster than any HDD I have, but not quite hitting the speeds that my 500gb T5 is hitting over the same USB ports... in some cases file transfers are only hitting about half or less of the 500gb.

small, fast and reliable. no junky add-ons, just good sleek design and functionality. can be attached anywhere with velcro because it is super-lightweight. really, anything else is stone-age technology for the average user. spend the extra coins and buy this drive. highly recommended

I have used these for scratch drives and portable transfer, and they have worked without issues. I recently bought this to install the internal SSD into the AndyCine LunchBox. It's a fairly easy process and a very affordable alternative to the expensive Angel Bird SSD.

It was so much smaller and more compact that I was expecting! Great for giving to clients to put their footage on for me to edit. Got a great deal on it, too!

Good purchase as expected

Can I transfer photos from my Nikon Z7 to the SSD without my MacBook Pro?
Asked by: Patrick
I’m sure you can. I don’t use a MacBook PRO. I’m actually using it with an iMac with USB3 cable that is included with the T5, and I look it. It will be even faster when I get my new 2019 iMac with UBS-C/ Thunderbolt 3.
