    5.0 out of 5 stars Make sure you use the correct cable and port
    By Amazon Customer on November 6, 2019
    I bought this unit to use for video editing on my new Mac Mini.

    Initially, I connected it with a USB C cable that I had laying around. The transfer speeds were disheartening to the point I started thinking about plan B (37.7 MB/s write and 40.8 MB/s read).

    Luckily, instead of returning the SSD, I tried the cable that came with it. Connection to the USB port yielded much better speeds (419.8 MB/s write and 426.4 MB/s read).

    Finally, using a Thunderbolt 3 port, I got speeds that should work for my intended use (920.2 MB/s write and 950.2 MB/s read).

    5.0 out of 5 stars A new king of values on external SSD world
    By Ryan. W on December 28, 2019
    Foreword:
    USB is such a confusion standard, I'll categorize it as follows( year 2020 ):

    USB 4(draft) = Thunderbolt 3 = 40Gbps
    USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 = USB 3.2 = SuperSpeed USB 20Gbps = 20Gbps
    USB 3.2 Gen 2 = USB 3.1 Gen 2 = USB 3.1 = SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps = 10Gbps
    USB 3.2 Gen 1 = USB 3.1 Gen 1 = USB 3.0 = SuperSpeed USB = 5Gbps

    So what we take here is an external SSD using USB 3.2 Gen 2(USB 3.1 old name) or simply call it 10Gbps as transfer speed.

    Review:

    The SSD is made of Aluminium as chassis and ruber on sides, there is a plastic band across the device as decorative with this SSD name and spec on it. there is only one USB-C 2 USB-C cable, with a USB-C 2 USB-A adapter on it. I tried shake it, no moving parts inside, And it's a bit on heavy side as of external SSD.

    It's a world that technology keep shifting and changing, one thing keep evolving constantly is the pursuit of speed, or more precisely: transfer speed.
    Since the era of NVME SSD, we have quite a lot selection of internal SSD speed range from 10-32Gbps (real world 3500MB/s). But the external storage always lack behind.
    Crucial is one of the first kind release 10Gbps product while other brand like Samsung and Sandisk still sell 5Gbps product for the same price.

    I tested mine with both native connection to MacBook Pro with thunderbolt3 using USB 3.1 and through USB 3.0 hub, it's perfectly picked up in system management page and test result perfectly matching the tech specs.

    USB 3.1 - 10Gbps - 920-960 MB/s in real world file transfer
    USB 3.0 - 5Gbps - 420-430 MB/s in real world file transfer

    I even tried using accompany USB-C to USB-A adapter and a USB-A to USB-C adapter to connect and reach the sam 10Gbps result, so it's USB 3.1 definitely a speed bump over USB 3.0.

    I tried a backup using Time Machine of 100G system to it, total time is 2 hours. the SSD surface barely feels the warm.

    But to my surprise, this SSD doesn't come with any LED indicator, so you don't know if it's work or not. consider it take such a big footprint on case, it's almost unacceptable that there is no working condition LED.

    Tl;DR:

    Pros: Fast 10Gbps, $ for value, sleek design, sturdy build quality, 3 years warranty
    Cons: No LED indicator, a little big large compare to Samsung, only one USB-C cable w/ USB-A adapter, no sheath for protection.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Just Wow!
    Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 4, 2020
    Like a lot of people I own a modern MacBook Pro (mine is the 2018 15" version which has 4 x Thunderbolt 3 ports), which you are totally scalped if you want more than 256GB of flash storage. I upgraded from a 2012 MacBook Pro, so really missed the capacity of the SATA SSD I had upgraded that to. I bootcamp my Macs too, which exacerbates the problem. Unlike the old MacBook Pros, the internal storage on modern ones aren't user upgradeable, which is where this beauty comes in!

    I was lucky enough to wait (and WAIT!) for the price to drop around Black Friday, so I got the 1TB model for not much more than the normal price of the 500GB model. I'm so chuffed my patience paid off.

    The packaging is normal Crucial minimalistic and environmentally friendly other than the plastic the SSD is wrapped in.

    Inside the box you get:

    The Crucial X8 SSD
    A user manual
    A dual purpose cable

    The SSD itself is a really lovely and tactile design. Other than two slim plastic inserts for branding and model/serial information it's all black anodised aluminium. It measures 110mm x 53mm x 10mm and weights a svelte 100g. Whilst it's silent in operation (no moving parts), it does get toasty, particularly under load. I haven't experienced any thermal throttling, so hopefully the aluminium case is enough of a heat sink to keep the M.2 NVME SSD inside. It has one single port, which is a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type C.

    The only thing about the design I don't like is the fact there is no activity/power light. You just have to trust your computer that it's ejected properly prior to removal.

    The supplied dual purpose cable is a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type C, with a converter from Type C to Type A. This is a great addition and allows backwards compatibility to devices with USB 3.1 and below. The USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type C interface is rated up to 10Gbits/s or 1.25GB/s.

    The Crucial X8 is rated at 1050 MB/s read speed by Crucial, and in testing it's not far off that. The Blackmagic Disk Speed test gave constant results of around 950 MB/s read and 925 MB/s write. Similar results were given in Windows 10 using AS SSD. It sure is quick! The only way you would exceed these speeds would be with an SSD using the Thunderbolt 3 interface to its full potential. Drives using Thunderbolt 3 cost FAR more than the Crucial X8, and unless you spend your whole life transferring huge files I'm not sure the extra cost would justify the real-world benefit.

    My drive is partitioned into two, one partition is for bootcamp with Windows 10; the other partition is a shared data expansion for Windows and macOS formatted as exFAT.

    Booting from the Crucial X8 is actually quicker and more responsive than my desktop PC which has a SATA SSD, and FAR quicker than my retired 2012 MacBook Pro.

    As you can probably tell from the above, I'm extremely happy with my purchase. It's not that often that all my expectations are met, or exceeded with a tech product, but on this occasion, the Crucial X8 ticks all the boxes.
