1.0 out of 5 stars It’s wood.
By MJ on June 22, 2019
?????? this hard drive is a piece of wood. I am not comparing it to a piece of wood. I actually opened the box and a piece of wood slides out. I don’t know what to say I am just laughing. Wood not recommend. Tree-mendous effort went into this scam. If you are looking to branch out into carpentry this is a good place to start. Good riddance.

1.0 out of 5 stars Expired certificate
By Hannah Barrineau on June 17, 2020
The developer ID Application certificate is expired and expired on 9/27/2019. The box that it came in states the production date is 2020 0413. My computer warned me that the package was signed with a certificate that is expired and if I acquired the package recently, it may not be authentic. I do not trust this product. I'm returning the item.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast, Compact, Silent, and Portable.
By Jon Henshaw on December 26, 2017
I was actually surprised at how small and light the drive was when I got it. I'm using it on a 2017 13" MacBook Pro and have it formatted with APFS (Encrypted). While I'm not seeing the quoted average "up to" speeds of 500+ MB/s, they are still impressive (see screenshot). I use this drive for my video editing (scratch disk and saving). It works great for Final Cut Pro and ScreenFlow Pro.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best purchase ever.
Reviewed in Canada on December 18, 2018
I purchased the 1TB as an upgrade to my 2013 iMac that was beginning to slow down due to internal HDD. Now I run the SSD as the default drive for OS and I've seen some significant improvements in speed. I use velcro tape to attach the drive to the back of the monitor for a cleaner setup.

Boot up time went from 1:15 to 0:35 -- more than twice as fast.

This is by far the cheapest and easiest upgrade you can get for any computer!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Samsung App could not recognized my SSD!
Reviewed in Canada on March 23, 2021
The Physical size of this SSD is awesome, small and solid looking metal smooth case. The Speed is amazing, and because it is a solid state drive, no spinning inside! I did a speed test on it, the read speed is about 516.7MB/s but the write speed is only 432.2MB/s when using the supplied USB-C cable. I do a lot of transferring of data from device to device and this has helped save me time. If money is a concern, get a 500 GB, or just wait a year or so and I'm sure they will come down in price.

The Samsung App that comes with the SSD does not work on my MacBook Pro. If you are using Big Sur you need to download the latest version of the app from Samsung website. However, I did downloaded from the web and it still couldn't recognized my SSD! What the APP does in case you wonder, it allow you to rename your SSD and setup a password for your SSD. If you're getting the T7 fingerprint version then you definitely need to use the APP because that's the only way for you to setup your fingerprints.
