    Dell Portable Thunderbolt 3 reviews

    500GB Portable Thunderbolt 3 External SSD is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lighting fast but not fully mac compatible Wicked fast importing and editing from this drive.  Would give it 5 stars on Mac High Sierra, but unfortunately the drive is not compatible the Mac Mojave upgrade.  I have worked with both Apple support (who says it is a Dell firmware issue), and Dell (who does not have great support options for accessories and would take a oral compliant but would not connect me with a tech since it was in relation to Apple compatibility).  I am hopefully a fix will be issued, but if you plan to upgrade to Mojave OS you will have to invest in a different drive.
