SanDisk Professional External SSD Reviews
Great little drive
I'm a professional commercial photographer with an older 2014 iMac/1TB fusion drive. This speedy little guy is now my working drive. Plug and play (with $8 USB adapter purchased separately). It's been a few months, and run disk utility weekly. No problems so far!
The best SSD so far
I had the 2TB G drive and been using it for almost 2 years without any issues hope this 4TB will last long
Two Failed Sandisk Pro SSD's in one week
I can't put into words how frustratingly annoying my experiences with this SanDisk hard drives have been. There has been absolutely zero user error on my part. I've been working in video and photo for over a decade, have used LaCie and most recently for past 6 years the Samsung SSDs. Have never had a problem with Samsung ever. (about 8 years ago I had some trouble with G-Drive so would usually skip those, but a friend highly recommended this drive to me). It was overheating and slowing my computer down like crazy, the 4k X-AVC-I footage that is usually a breeze for my macbook pro to handle was impossible to edit without making proxies. I thought it was something wrong with my laptop, fortunately I finished the edit in time but then the following week the hard drive had dozens of problems. I'd plug it in and it wouldn't be recognized, transferring footage was impossible and it couldn't handle 100gbs of raw photos. It kept failing over and over again. I spoke on phone with a few customer respresentatives who were also very frustrating and tried implying it was my fault. I finally got a Warranty request approved and they're going to send me a replacement (I've only had this hard drive for 2 weeks btw). I wish I had kept the packaging and returned to BH so I could get my money back. Fast forward a week later, BH is having a huge sale on their Sandisk Extreme Pro SSDs. Although I've just had a horrible experience with this one, I decided to give SanDisk another chance, I figure this G-Drive branded one was the one with problems. That's a whole other story within itself, but within one day of owning the SanDisk Extreme, I've already had it failed more then a dozen times in just trying to transfer footage over and it keeps making my laptop shutdown. My Samsung T5 from 2016 is better, faster, than either of the SanDisk drives I've used. Luckily I kept the box this time and I'm going to return the Sandisk Extreme Pro and buy Samsung from now. As for this G-Drive, when I get the replacement maybe I'll try to sell because I never want a SanDisk hard drive near me again.
Upgrade to SSD
Easy to install on Mac and blazing fast transfer speeds
So I use one of these drives for my online media while editing and I must say I am very happy with the speed. It is clocking at some 920MB/s and I find it good for a USB-C drive in 2022. I have used faster Thunderbolt drives but for the price and USB-C connect ability this is very good.
Fast and reliable
So dar (knok on wood) no problems. It works as advertised.
this changes everything
to have something this small, this fast, this robust, this tough - it's something of a miracle. And, hey, you don't have to plug it into AC. I thought of these drives strictly as storage but as a video editor they have replaces by cinder block sized G-RAID drives. And the easy portability means I can move FCP projects from one MAC to another with the greatest of ease. A total game-changer for me.
great little drive
This is the second one of these I've gotten - I love the size and the speed. Works as expected.
