SanDisk Extreme Pro External SSD Reviews
This drive is ridiculously fast! It connects instantly and seems very sturdy. So far I'm pretty happy with it!
Will not work on my Tascam BD-MP1, A standard hard drive does work just thought I would like to have an SSD Drive, But No Luck
A Fine Drive -- Confusion about Speed
I've been using Samsung T5s and T7s, but I wanted to get a larger drive to hold photos and Lightroom Catalogs. I have a Mac Studio with TB 3/TB 4 usb 3 ports. When I got the drive I reformatted it with Apple's latest filing system. It works well -- stays connected and after transferring lots of data to the drive, mine did not get hot as many have reported. I assumed that with the Mac Studio, I would get approximately 2,000 MB/s read and write speeds. I'd read lots of reviews, but I did not fully understand the situation. In fact, this drive reads and writes at around 900+ MB/s using Blackmagic disk speed test. After playing with cables, I sent a query to SanDisk, and, amazingly, after a couple of days I got a long reply. Their contention is that you need a USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C connection. I'd assumed that my Mac's TB 4 port would be downwardly compatible with USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C. This is an incorrect assumption! Unless you are using a computer that has exactly the 3.2 Gen 2x2 port, your drive will revert to a max of 1,000 MB/s. Forget trying a thunderbolt cable -- you need to have exactly the right port, and based on lots of B&H reviews, new Mac Studios and MacBook Pros don't have the correct port. The good news: on my Mac, the 4TB Extreme Pro is around 50% faster than a Sandisk 2TB T7. And, at least for now, the B&H prices on the Extreme and Extreme Pro are almost identical. Perhaps we'll get lucky, and Apple will start supporting USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 Type-C. The descriptions of the drive state that you need a particular flavor of port -- I wish someone had been more explicit about the fact that very few computers actually support this standard. But I remain pleased with the drive.
Failed in One Month
One of two failed in one month. Had chats with western digital and they said it failed also. Cost me at least 8 hours of headaches.
Mediocre performance and build quality
The Sandisk 2TB Extreme Pro is touted as a super fast read/write SSD, but I find it only a little faster than my old Seagate external drive. It takes 25 minutes to back up 540GB of photos. Additionally, the connection port seems to be loose. I have to be very careful not to bump or move the SSD after connecting it to my computer. Doing so sometimes causes it to lose connectivity, and I get a device improperly disconnected message. Especially bad during file back-ups. Not sure if this is just my Sandisk SSD, or if other users have experienced the same issues?
Fantastic portable SSD: reliable, fast & small.
I'm a graphic artist & most of my projects use massive files. Subsequently, I own 4 of these drives. I've never had a hard drive failure, the connections between the cable and the drive are secure (the drive doesn't randomly fall off and disconnect like other less expensive drives I've had), and they make great Photoshop scratch disks. If you're on the fence or just in the market for a fantastic portable SSD, buy this one! I can't recommend it more highly!
Great product, pretty much perfect as far as external hard drives go
Fantastic speed and tons of space
My Acronis backups of 2.5TB data completed within 95 minutes and the backup software reported speed of 2992 Mbps ( full data effective speed as it uses compression). The same backups to other drives (non-SSD) used to take me over 7 hours to back up.
