Sandisk able to support the new ipad pro?

Jiří Pitek says:

There is small problem… If you want to move more than 10GB data Samsung drop the speeds to 150MB/s in cause of Cache, because its mSata EVO inside. WD will thermal throttle in same scenario. The best one is SanDisk no issue with transfer speeds at all. I think it will be nice if you mentioned this.

If PNY makes a new Elite Portable SSD with 3.1 gen 2, it will prolly beat all three… at least on 250/500GB

São Paulo Soul says:

I was born in 1987 with computers being introduced to me in 1995… so let me be the first to say these are more than portable to me .. all of them .. don’t see the major difference if it’s just a few mm taller. Lol. Technology blows my mind.

Thanks for the test. I simply built my external SSD myself. I bought a Samsung 850 M.2 and the matching housing. The advantage here, I have a five-year warranty on the M.2 SSD. And the purchase was cheaper than the T5, which unfortunately only offers a three-year warranty. I have one question about the tested drives. Does only the T5 have a status LED?

I like the SanDisk because it offers USB-C cable and with its adapter USB 2.0.

kristoffer dy says:

@iDB how come when i try transferring more than 150 gb file it slows down to 80 – 90 mb/s ?

highjinx68 says:

Thank You! This was quick, concise, and informative. Just what I was looking for starting a dive into SSD drives.

Simon F says:

I find it very disappointing that in order to factory reset my Samsung Portable SSD I have to take it to a service center and pay a $66 fee. My SSD has no data on it and is not password protected, so I don’t understand why I can’t do this myself at home.

Charles Chan says:

I like Samsung because they provide 3 years warranty for external and 5 years for internal if you buy it from a local store

Cory Guffey says:

512gb?
You Mean 500?

Hamid Ghafoorian says:

What’s the best WIRELESS portable hard drive for Android?

Vignesh S says:

This is a very helpful review. I was going to get the San Disk but some reviews indicate that dirt and dust accumulates on the rubber coating easily. Has this been your experience?

Hoshi Ryo says:

Which one is the best?

Psyprus says:

Doesnt WD own Sanddisk ?

Vadim Rotari says:

SSD WD have same M2 from Sandisk

Myles Moroz says:

Can either of these drives be used to hook up externally to a PS4 or Xbox?

Thiago Rezende says:

It was really helpful.

David Ramos says:

Just got a Samsung T5 on Amazon in 1T version. It will work wonderfully with my Mac Mini 2018 that only has 128 Gigs

Don Ong says:

Western Digital versus Samsung T5 ??? Help me decide !!!

Laurent Wirmer says:

My Samsung T5 with 1 TB on iMac late 2017 at TB3 Port makes read 520 MB/s and write 485 MB/s.

Rudy Rude says:

I don’t know if anyone asked this question, have you tested connectivity to USB-C port phones? I guess is it should work mostly newer Android devices.

Velmurugan Rathnam says:

thanks

WildWestHikes says:

I was going to ask what camera you used for this video; wow the crispness at 4K is impressive! So I found that GH5 in your list… Then I checked the price… I’ll stick with my little $400 Sony, thanks. haha

Jov Espinas says:

I have 1 TB Samsung T5 SSD. Works like a charm. It’s super small and light weight. Feels very premium. I love it.

gsh0ck3d says:
