SanDisk Extreme V2 External SSD Reviews

Fast but gets so very hot

By Es2022
Rated 3 out of 5

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

Fast and light

Used this for my Steam Deck. Works great so far. Needed it to be light, thin and fast. Cost was comparable to others of similar speed but heavier and bigger.

Fast USB Storage!

If you have a fast USB port, this is a nice fast USB storage device for both reading and writing. Way faster than any USB stick I've tried. The device is also smaller than you would think from the pictures and will work well as backup storage when traveling.

Amazingly compact

I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box at how compact this drive was. Well designed, easy to carry or stuff in a bag, fast connection.

WOW! Fast and Solid (state)!

I bought this drive to replace another 2 TB SATA drive for backing up photo and video archives. I have had two other SATA drives fail due to head crashes and wanted something more fail-safe. SSD was the right solution. I was pleantly surprised how quickly and seamlessly I was able to rewrite the files to my new drive, and again by how instantaneously I can access them now. I have been watching the prices of SSD drives decline steadily over the last few years, and combined with agressive Black Friday deals, finally made my move. This drive is attractoive, compact and handy. Because if is an SSD drive, I no longer feel compelled to remove it to conserve its useful life.

High Quality - Right Size

So far so good. Just the right capacity to back-up my desktop or holding my Raw travel files. Fast, reliable (used Sandisk & WD products for years) and perfect size (physically) for travel.

Had my eye on this little ssd for awhile now, and when it went on sale I jumped on it and boy I'm glad I did! Fast AF, and amazing size - fits anywhere - really great time in FCP on my 2015 Mac book pro. Get this guy, you won't regret it!

Works like a charm

I uploaded almost 2 TB of photos all at once to two of these SSDs without a hitch. Small, lightweight and fits nicely in purse or pocket. 4 stars for the short cord that leaves it dangling from my computer.

Asked by: Anne
For Linux and Mac cross compatibility, you would simply need to format the drive into the ExFAT File System on either machine.

Is this drive formatted out of the box for a Windows PC? If I use it with a PC to backup photos while traveling, can I then plug it into my Mac at home to copy the photos to my Mac-based home system? Thanks!
Asked by: troy
No, this drive is not pre-formatted. If you would like to use the drive with both Windows and Mac computers then the best format to choose is exFAT, which will be able to work with both operating systems.

Can anyone weigh in on sustained read/write for applications like video editing?
Asked by: jacob
I've done a fair amount of Final Cut Pro X with this drive. No complaints here. Without moving parts, any SSD drive should perform much better than a standard drive. I have one for photos and one for video editing. When the video one fills up, I dump older projects onto an 8TB standard drive.
