Crucial X6 External SSD Reviews

Unit never worked right

Error messages from the start. I would not recommend.

Nice little SSD

I bought this SSD to use as a backup drive for a new MacBook Air that I recently purchased. I have no complaints with this SSD. It's quite compact. I use it for Carbon Copy Cloner backups and am quite impressed with how much faster it is than my old G-Force external drive. Best of all, this drive was relatively inexpensive.

It works.

There isn't a lot to say about an SSD. It either works, or it doesn't. This one works. It is fast (read and write) and easy, Windows 11 and 10 recognized it instantly. I particularly like the small, rounded square form factor which lends itself nicely to my organizing system.

Great speed and storage

I bought this to replace a Samsung T5 as my external storage for Lightroom Classic. The read/write speed is very good and the unit functions as I would expect. I also use a 4TB Crucial SSD as my daily computer backup.

I purchased this to be used as offboard storage for videos and photos from my Samsung S22 Phone/camera. It worked fine with the included cable.
