What is the write speed? Thanks.

What is the write speed? Thanks.
Asked by: Ehud
Awful. The advertised write speeds of 800 MB/s are a complete fantasy that they pulled from mid-air. In real life you'll never get anything close. Sometimes it's worse than a USB 2.0 thumb drive. Other times it's ok and more like a SATA III SSD speeds. This is when connected to a modern Mac with TB3 or TB4 connections. No rhyme or reason why.
