Pros and cons

According to our External SSD expert
  • Thanks to the USB 3.1 generation 2 connection, you can transfer data with 10Gbps up to two times faster than with USB 3.0.
  • Because this external SSD is compact and resistant to dust, water, and extreme temperatures, it's very suitable for on the go.
  • You don't need a power cable, as the power runs through the USB cable.
  • The drive's encryption is software; it doesn't have hardware encryption for extra-safe encryption.

Description

The SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD 500GB is an external SSD for demanding users. If you're taking lots of photos on the go, you can safely store them on this SSD, because the drive has an IP55 rating. That means it's splash proof and dustproof, so all your photos will survive a rainstorm or a walk in the sand. On top of that, this SSD writes quickly. Transferring a folder of high-resolution photos with a total size of 4GB will take around 8 seconds, thanks to the 550MB/s transfer speed. You can connect the drive to a laptop with a USB-C port via 2nd-generation USB 3.1. The SSD has an integrated key ring, so you can hang the drive from your camera strap, allowing for easy access. Thanks to its 39-gram weight, your SSD weighs about the same as a passport, and you'll barely feel the drive while you're on the go.

So reliable it gets boring.

  • It works without any problem
  • It works with Windows10 system installed, connected to MacBookAir

My son bought a MacBookAir last year, this year the school told every student to buy a laptop. Since we had just invested in the mac, we didn't like that. So I had to make sure that windows 10 was also installed. The mac's SSD is only 125GB, so I thought about an external drive on Thunderbolt, these are very expensive. Then I thought let's try USB3. And it works, and fast enough. It is not noticeable that the operating system is on an external drive.

Top SSD, and has a great price/quality ratio

  • Very small and compact
  • Can mount video on it
  • Loose cable instead of integrated.

I bought it because I have to make 4K footage montages at work. I should actually be in a higher price category, but this one seemed "fast enough" to me, and that was right! He is fast enough, but he does stutter every now and then. Not a disaster, but a very good price/quality ratio! I can do what I have to do, so far it is also reliable, it weighs nothing, is light. Sometimes the cable is a bit too small when I work on the iMac, but the short cable is perfect for the laptop. I now use a soft glasses case/case where I transport the drive, cable and USB adapter and that fits perfectly! No case is included. I now use the parenthesis to attach my name and phone number. (See photo) super handy!

Super-fast storage in mini-gorge size

  • Fast data transfer
  • No sound
  • Price

A very fast data storage without sound. Compared to an external HDD, this is a super thing. Small and handy to carry. It contains a USB 3.1 adapter with a 2.0/3.0 connector. It is pricey, the only downside. That's what I'm willing to do after my experience.

compact, quiet & fast SSD

  • quiet
  • small size (compact)
  • price

Unpacked my SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD (1TB) yesterday. Great SSD that is very fast and quiet. The supplied cable gives you the option to put it on USB C or the supplied attachment ensures that you can use USB (3.0). Plug and play! points for improvement: The cable is quite short, as soon as you open the SSD (properties) you will see that you only get 931GB instead of 1TB. In terms of price, it should still be a few bucks lower.

Great thing for it. Fast easy.

  • Works quickly plug in and go.
  • Supplied cable very short.

I have placed my games (eg Steam, Epic) on ssd to start everything from there. And this works fine, works considerably faster than from the original hdd, but that was to be expected. Use a longer cable so that it is not in the way.

Ideal for on the road and at work

  • light
  • compact
  • cable too rigid

ideal for work backup, where I now always have everything I need with me safely in my bag. Small and light enough to fit in my pants bag myself. Only the USB C cable is too cold and rigid, but that is quickly solved with another cable.

Excellent compact SSD

  • compact
  • fast
  • cable a bit on the short side

A fast and compact SSD with plenty of space that can also be connected to USB or USB-C (adapter included) makes this one of the best external SSD options currently available. Personally, I found the cable a bit on the short side, mainly because it's not built into the housing and could have been longer, but this is just a personal preference and doesn't make it an inferior purchase.
