After using hard drives for several years now I finally got a ssd. It's smaller than the size of my hand and the write speed is super fast. I got it for a great deal too during black friday.

I use two redundant copies to keep my computer hard drive open & my camera memory clear after shoots. One copy I take with me, one stays at home, just in case. Bought these to add capacity since my two HDD were getting full. Small drives fit in the same case as my other two. Easy!

Great SSD for the price

I picked this up on sale for $170 and so glad I did. Going from working of external HDDs to this has changed my life.

Hope it lasts… I only use these for backing up but the extremely high heat leads me to believe they may not last

Solid SSD

Really GOOD backup or transfer option. The Pro version of this is a lot faster IF you are looking to use it as a working drive. LOVE how small this is and transfer speeds are really good as well.

Great drive and sturdy case
