I love this unit. I recently decided to put all my music on one drive. This drive is fast. It took me just under an hour to transfer 12700+ songs from two drives into the Samsung. The speed is impressive even though I don't have the latest generation USB, just a 3.0. I already had a soft cushion case for it which I bought somewhere in my travels and the hard drive fits like a glove.

Insanely Fast. Works with everything I have
I have partioned out the drive so some partions work with my mac for TimeMachine and the other works as a normal drive for mac and PC for transferring files.
AND THE SPEED!!!
I transferred 44.45GB of movies onto my computer in 1 minute and 20 seconds! And it wrote them onto the drive in 1 minute and 38 seconds.
Awesome Portable Storage for my large Construction drawings
Large blueprints have always been a pain in my industry - not anymore! With 2TB of storage, I am not even worried this will run out of space and it's durable too - which is what I need. Now, if they can come up with a build-in external keychain loop so I can hook it to my briefcase and not lose it it would be PERFECT!!
Using this portable SSD in conjunction with an onboard SSD in my laptop is like speed nirvana. I can do file backups and disc image backups in such little time that it encourages frequent use, which is wise. To facilitate my backups I use the free AOMEI backup tool downloaded online. I believe my very fast backups are the result of two (2) SSD's working together. If you have a typical mechanical hard drive in your computer then you probably can still expect good performance but perhaps not as fast. Also, this Samsung T5 is very small and lightweight.

Solid & reliable
I bought this to do a complete backup of my late 2016 MacBook Pro before buying my current 16” MacBook Pro. It worked well for that backup. Now I'm using it in addition to my Synology NAS to do full Time Machine backups. My reasoning is only that then in case of a mandatory disaster evacuation, I have a means of quickly grabbing a very portable backup to go. It is working very well in this tandem Time Machine setup.
It's pretty, but, slow...
I've rarely used this drive after purchasing it since it never seemed fast. Recently I tried to use it on my xbox and it said it's too slow to even use on that! So I ran a speed test and can't get above 42mb/s read/write speeds. Emailing customer support... hopefully this is fixable.
Portable SSD 2TB is not connecting with Mac
Initially the device was connected with Mac and copied 200GB of files. When I was trying to use Portable SSD software to connect with SSD drive it was not recognizing. Suddenly the Samsung SSD 2T drive stopped working and now I'm not able to retrive files from the drive. When I connect the devie to Mac it's showing 44MB and the drive format is also corrupted.
