Doesn't work properly with macOS Sierra V 10.12.2
January 31, 2017
What a disappointment. This drive does not function as advertised or it is supposed to function on my MacBook Pro 15" 2016 brand new, running macOS Sierra v 10.12.2.
The drive does mount, and 1 TB is available. However the software does not work. Error messages occur after one tries to launch the app titled "T3 Log In Activator for Mac" after its installed from the .pkg titled "T3 Security Enabler for Mac". In addition it is not possible to partition the drive. So if all you want is 1TB you get it. You do not get Samsung's encryption capabilities. In my case I wanted to partition the drive to run Time Machine on one partition and a boot drive on the other.
I went over this in great detail with Samsung technical support. Now my new Mac has only USB-C ports. So I purchased an expensive USB-C to USB-C thunderbolt cable to connect the SSD to the new Mac. The technical support said that this cable was no good and to use their cable provided in the box, which I did. But it needs the apple dongle cable USB-C to USB-A. This did not work either. Samsung blamed the Apple cable but said to return it for another which I did. Amazon had another to me within 2 days.
The second drive performed in the same fashion as the first drive. Back on the phone with Samsung, discussing the cable, it was decided to try it on my old MacBook Pro vintage 2010 running the same OS. Result, the same errors occurred, when using only the Samsung cable USB-C to USB-A. Samsung recommended that I return the second drive for a refund, which I have done.
