    Super fast - using this as my boot drive in OS X

    5/5 Amazon Customer (San Antonio, TX United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Samsung T3 Portable SSD - 500GB - USB 3.1 External SSD (MU-PT500B/AM) (Personal Computers) I got a great deal on a new Retina iMac 27-inch during an easter sale. But unfortunately it came with the 1TB standard hard drive, which was super slow (100-130MB/second read time). To add an SSD on an iMac is crazy expensive with Apple.I bought this drive, cloned my OS X internal drive to it (the 512GB model), and my computer now behaves like it has an SSD for a fraction of the price. It supports UASP, which was critical for me. We'll see how it lasts, but right now the difference this made in the computer as a boot drive means it no longer takes 20-seconds to open Lightroom, but instead 4-5 seconds (with a huge library of 90k photos).According to disk speed test, I see right around 390mb/s write and 425mb/s read over USB 3.0., April 9, 2016

    A great portable storage product.

    Customer Video Review Length:: 5:33 MinsUPDATE -- Oddly enough my T3 is now performing at the same speed as my T1. Whatever performance issues my device had when I first began using it have now disappeared. Perhaps some early wear leveling? I will be updating my review on YouTube to reflect the changes and will upload something here as well.The Samsung T3's exterior casing is and improvement over the prior version of the product. It' snow metal and much more rugged, it sports a reversible USB type C connector, and it now works out of the box without additional software installation.This is a great portable storage device that's fast enough for just about any use that might be thrown its way. Great for general video editing (even multicamera 4k edits) and certainly more than adequate for gaming. I use a bunch of these as field editing drives for my YouTube channel and have found them to be every bit as good as desktop class SATA SSD drives.You... 5/5 Lon J.

    4/5 Fiendship Fun - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: WD My Passport Elite 250 GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive (Titanium) (Personal Computers) i bought this for the five year warranty; its pretty easy to use where you click and drag your files into the hard drive. very small and compact size as well.this comes with backup software that allows you to encrypt your files and syncs the hard drive with your computer and allows you to instantly and painlessly sync whenever it has it plugged in.HOWEVER.you can't directly access the files as if they were .mp3, .jpg, .wma, etc. this is solely used as a backup. which sucks. the above click and drag method i'd say is the most useful method imo except it makes you can't use the sync software with that. wompwompwompppppp... !kind of slow as well for a PC; TECHNICALLY its fast like a lot more than downloading speeds. but if you have like what, 40 gb, i was waiting about 30-40 minutes regardless if i used the software or not.

    Decent little, but review your options first

    4/5 RW (Springfield, MA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: WD My Passport Elite 250 GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive (Titanium) (Personal Computers) Western digital sells the Passport Essential, Elite, and Studio. The essential has a 3 year warranty. The elite has a 5 year warranty. The Studio gives you firewire and USB connectivity.In the real world, firewire for external hard drives is always faster. Ignore the 480 mb/s spec for USB 2.0.Thing is, these drives are all priced fairly closely with each other. Why would you choose a lesser drive for the same price? Be very careful when you do the Amazon search, I thought I was looking for the 320GB elite and accidentally bought the 250GB. The restocking fee was so high, I just kept it.
