As a back up drive for my photos when travelling it is sublime. Very light, no moving parts to break, impact resistant and of course it’s compact. Copying to and from the T5 is super fast.....5 times faster than my 2 1/2” La Cie drive. Very highly recommended.
Well worth the price.
Top reviews from other countries
Speed : Blazing Fast !
Size : Barely the size of a Visiting Card.
It comes with two Cables :
USB C to C (for connecting it to an Android device)
USB C to A (for connecting to a PC/Mac)
Both support USB 3.1
1. Highly compact
2. High amount of transfer speed (Only if you have USB 3.0 port on PC / Laptop)
3. 150mb+ transfer rate
4. TESTED: Copied 5 GB movie file in 18 seconds
Go for it guys...!!!
1. Super light weight
3. Supports Type C to Type C and Type C to Full USB (Both cables in package)
1. Unstable connection using provided usbs, They do not fit in completely nor lock in
2. Speeds like 30-80 Megabyte per seconds even after being ssd connected to Usb 3.1, thunderbolt or type c connection on laptop/desktop/mobile phone (I have note 9)
3. Super costly, we are paying just for portability and weight. Not enough gains compared to other normal external storage options
I am still going to keep using as I bought for compact design and type c-type c use case
