Great Drive 3/7/2019 4:21:04 PM

Pros: Small, lightweight and durable

Cons: it's an SSD, its read / writes are finite. someday this wonderful little drive will go bad.

Overall Review: had issues w included cable, giving me USB2 speeds at around 40MB/s - bought an Anker cable from the other guys, $13 cable and this drive lit up big time, 200-300MB/s write rates are amazing. all because a cable. be sure your using a USB3 gen2 cable and not some junk gas station cable before leaving negative feedback.

Died in 9 months and Samsung Canada said they don't warranty it when we bought it from 1/4/2018 1:48:34 PM

Pros: It is fast and 1TB is a lot of storage. Its small size makes it very portability to be used anywhere.

Cons: It is expensive and don't last. Samsung Canada don't warranty it when it is bought from

Overall Review: After bought it from around mid April, 2017, I have been using it constantly to store my research results. I thought Samsung had a 3 years warranty on it (stated on their website), it should be a safe device for at least a couple of years. On Dec 30, 2017, it suddenly died. Called Samsung Canada Tech Support on the phone, after following a few simple evaluation steps suggested, I found the TS person knew very little about this product and had provided little help. Finally the TS person asked where I had purchased this device from, I answered from The TS person then said they don't warranty anything bought from, told me to sort support from and dropped the conversation.

I am not sure if the TS person was telling the truth or not. If it is, Newegg should put a note on their products where the warranty are questionable from the supplier. If it is not, then it is up to Samsang to sort it out with their own staffs.

However, the best warranty on a memory storage device is data restoration service. A new replacement device may have very little meaning. Some of the hard drive companies (not naming names) are starting to provide this service. I hope the SSD companies will be doing the same thing soon.

This is a bitter experience I have learnt. I want to share it with you and hope you can learn it too.

Xbox One king! 7/14/2017 5:28:39 PM

Pros: - Huge upgrade in speed compared to Hard Disk Drive (5400RPM) in the Xbox One. I would say at least 300% faster.
- Get into games and applications faster, increase you win chances when joining games in progress.
- Less headache not having to wait for games to load.
- Small and Petite. Fits in tight places.
- USB 3.1 for quicker read and write speeds.

Cons: I went to plug in the T3 SSD to my Xbox and it was not recognizing the drive as big enough for games and apps, only media files. I looked online to see what I had to do to have the Xbox recognize it, I tried to set the drive up in a certain format from some forum post I read on windows pc. Turned out it was just the order I tried to connect the drive on the Xbox. Go to drives and storage, then plug in SSD USB cord and you should be able to partition the drive to use for games not just media. Took me a couple tries and a minor headache but I got it to work within an 40 minutes of effort.

Awesome Portable SSD for dual booting 6/26/2017 7:57:44 PM

Pros: Fairly small
Supper fast
Good amount of storage
Reasonably priced compared to other portable SSDs
Super light weight

Cons: A little bigger than what I was expecting

Overall Review: I love this drive, it is supper fast. I am using it to dual boot my MacBook Pro into windows 10 and it runs it as if it was its native OS.

Note: There is not USB C to USB C cable included, it comes with a USB C to normal USB, which is a good thing and a bad thing depending on what computer you have.

Pros: Fast!! Using USB 3.1 port depending on OS (see below). Reliable solid state storage.

Cons: NONE

Overall Review: Only bottleneck is Windows. On 10 and 7 File transfer slows and goes under Windows file transfer about 150 MB/s to a couple of KB/s.

Linux Mint this thing performs like a dream stable transfer around 325-350 MB/s

USB-C connection issue 4/20/2017 4:20:54 AM

Pros: Loved the T3 1TB device I have and purchased the T3 2TB to support VM work. Speed is on par with 1TB device

Cons: I will be requesting an RMA due to a connection issue. Pins or other inhibitor inside the T3 USB-C connector is causing a loose and sometimes incomplete connection - causing the device to go offline and unpowered...Light goes from Blue to red as well (before going out). This is occurring on my T3 2TB device. I also have a T3 1TB which has a more firm connection and have never experienced this issue. I've had the 2TB for a couple of months and the connection issue is a recent problem...
