Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I saw the many 1-star reviews complaining about a stuck cable. But was swayed by the overwhelming number of positive reviews.
Well, guess what, this happened to me too. The unit arrived, I plugged it into my PC to try it out, and after about an hour's worth of experiment removed it from the PC. I then tried to remove the USB cable from the unit, and it was stuck fast. I pulled a bit harder, and the entire USB 3.0 socket ripped out of the unit, still attached to the USB cable.
Now the USB cable carries a ripped-out USB socket -- little copper wires dangling. And the unit itself features a hole in the plastic casing where the socket used to be.
I returned the unit to Amazon, for a refund. No, I don't want it replaced.
I have two of these - 1 for use with Lightroom and for storing RAW and JPG Photos, and a 2nd to act as a redundant backup of the first (cause you can never be too safe). I'm getting ready to buy a 3rd one, but of the 900 series, to use as my primary SSD for TimeMachine backup's of my MacBook since i've read its a straight USB-C to USB3.0 Micro cord thats included and its much faster for the larger amount of data thats being transferred.
Write speeds were at least double my mechanical HDD in my initial tests --- I copied over a 60GB Windows 7 VM to both drives, and the SSD had speeds well above 300+ MB/s, whereas the HDD hovered at 140 for a while, before dropping and holding at 120 MB/s.
I've never had an issue with any Sandisk products and I own multiple flash drives and memory cards from them. This makes a great addition to my collection and continues my love for the brand!
Nice job, SanDisk. This unit is small, but clearly designed to take a little punishment. The rubber edge bumper and rubber plug for the micro-USB3 port are a nice touch. I won't worry about messing this drive up by tossing it into my backpack with my keys and such.
Where the MyDigitalSSD fell down, the SanDisk shines. No heat problems, no weird un-mounting issues, and rock solid reliable so far. The diamond shaped design with the USB plug at the corner is a little weird, but it's growing on me.
There's no substitute for reliability. Buy this one if you want a fast external SSD you can trust.
