SanDisk Extreme V2 External SSD Reviews

Highly Portable, Fast, Bus Powered

By Evan
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-27

I'm mainly a video shooter. I bought 4 of these drives (on sale!) for downloading camera cards in the field. They are fast, silent, and so far, reliable. They work so well I decided to keep one on my desk for editing smaller projects. (iMac/FCPX) So far, so good. The only negative is also a positive: They're tiny and easy to misplace.

Small. Fast and worth evert penny. I will eventually replace all of my Buffalo drives.

I got this drive just about a year ago and have already bought more because these are the fastest and most compact external drives I have ever used. The case is strong and has a nice feel to it and the provided cable fits snug in my devices without any wiggle. I have edited 4k videos from this drive and have not had any issues. Highly recommended.

The form factor is smaller than a cell phone, making it perfect to carry in my laptop bag. The USB-C connection and solid state drive was also a welcomed upgrade from my previous USB 2.0 backup drive.

Super lightweight yet durable!

The title of my review says it all. But i also want to add that this is fast and reliable. I had only bought samsung T5 and T7s before this but when I got this I was impressed at how small they managed to make this. Yes, they are smaller than the T7s!

Best SSD portable drives

I've had Version 1 of this drive and used it for a couple of years. It works fast and flawlessly. I use it to edit my videos in 4K. i own 4 of these. Usually when I have finished a project, I transfer the files from this drive to a regular Sata 2 drive for storage. i never tested their waterproof or shockproof capabilities (would not on purpose). This disk is highly recommended. The prices had been multiplied by 3 lately but fortunately, i took advantage of a BH photo promotion to buy a couple at their original price.

Great value in a portable SSD

By Brian

With the price of disks always declining, I was able to buy this for the same price I paid for the 1TB version two years ago. What I like in particular about the Extreme V2 is the high transfer speeds do not suddenly drop when the internal cache is full. To get maximum speed, make sure you connect it to a port that supports 10Gb/s USB3.2 gen 2 speeds. I did try it with a cheap passive hub that only supports 5Gb/s USB3.2 gen1 and the transfer speed was indeed cut in half. Because it uses an NvMe drive rather than a 2.5 SATA, it's really tiny. Like all high speed devices these days, it does get quite warm in use but not enough to be uncomfortable to pick up. The included USB-C cable is very short, about 6, but does come with a C to A adapter included. Reliability of the 2 year old 1TB Extreme V2 has been excellent, I expect this to be the same. Overall I'm very pleased. I'd recommend this over the popular Samsung T7 drive.

Asked by: Deborah
I have a Mac Pro 2013 Late computer. It has 6 Thunderbolt 2 ports and 4 USB 3.0 ports. I do photography and one file can be nearly 1.8GB. Thus I want an SSD 4TB drive external to store AND work on images with Photoshop. Will this 4TB SSD drive work with my computer? If not, is there one that you suggest? I looked for a Thunderbolt SSD that interfaced to TB 2 but all I found was SSD's for TB 3. Thanks

Does the read/write capability have anything to do with video playback performance when video editing? Or is the speed advantage basically limited to the file transfer stage?

Yes the speed of this SSD mainly when reading files will provide smoother playback. Both playback and file transfer will be assisted by the fast speed of this SSD.
