Will this work with a M1 mac as an external drive?
Asked by: keith
You would need to place it in an enclosure but it would have to be a Thunderbolt enclosure. Please consider the G-Technology 500GB G-DRIVE mobile Pro Thunderbolt 3 External SSD (B&H # GT0G10310) or the Samsung 500GB X5 Portable SSD (B&H # SAMUPB500BAM) as ready, out-of-the-box alternative that will give you performance close to this M.2 module.
