    Refuses to format and won’t do its only purpose. I am so fed up of this current wave of technological duds. Where is the quality control?!! This is either Amazon not sorting their return products properly (or some staff making mistakes or swiping them over) or whoever makes these things have really lowered their quality control. I just want a working drive!!!! Is that so much to ask?? 🙁

    Very pleased with this – its physical size belies its storage capacity and it seems plenty fast enough.

    Currently used as a Time Machine backup for my daughters MAC.

    I’m sure it’s rugged enough to cope with home, school and office use. For more demanding travel situations (e.g. regular and frequent international travel) I might be tempted to go for their metal bodied X8 versions – but for everyday use the X6 is more than capable.

    I love this drive! It’s quick, unbelievably so, but importantly it feels bulletproof. Also, it’s a lot smaller than expected, so carrying this in my jeans pocket is comfortable, but also doesnt feel like it will break by stuffing it in with my keys etc.

    The media could not be loaded.

     The drive starts well – small, compact, good price, fast in individual file transfers. However, it is unable to sustain those speeds over large data transfers – copying files onto the SSD from another SSD or SD memory cards etc.
    As you can see in the video, speeds start good – with it supporting copy of photos from a pair of UHS-II memory cards at around 170-180MB/s from each card. However, after a minute or so worth of copying speeds tank – dropping to 25MB/s from each card and eventually stalling on one copy altogether. The SSD doesn’t seem to recover from this until the file copy is stopped or times out!! Suspect this is linked to insufficient cache on the SSD to hide its underlying slow write speeds.

    In contrast, running the same copy from the same cards to a Sandisk 2TB drive runs at 180MB/s from each card from start until finish. No drops…

    Disappointing. Bought two of the Crucial 4TB’s – will be…

    I purchased the X6 4TB to use as media storage on my Mac Mini M1. I was previously using a mechanical drive but the noise of the drive spinning up was annoying next to the silent M1 Mini so I decided to buy this drive.

    Unlike the other models in the X6 range this is a DRAMless NVMe using the Phison PS2251-17 U17 USB 3.2 Gen 2×1 controller. It has no problems connecting at 10 Gbps on the Mac Mini M1 USB controller.

    Performance is generally better than a SATA SSD and perfectly adequate when used for media storage. It tends to get around 800 MB/s when reading on benchmarks.

    The drive also has a decent 3 year Crucial Warranty, so getting it replaced in the event of a failure shouldn’t be an issue.

    At the time of this review it is also by far the cheapest USB 4TB SSD on the market. Overall very happy with mine.

    The guidance is not clear enough. I cannot use this on my laptop. Sending back.

    Works perfectly with ps5 to upgrade capacity. Comes with a USB c to usb c cable. Which only plugs into the usbc on front of ps5 so I bought a usbc to usb2 cable so that I could put it out of sight but its cold to touch. Very quick fornps4 games to load to ps5.

    The Curcial X6 has achieved some good speed. I list them below, I have a Dell 3881 i5 with a SDD hard drive and also a Sata HD. I used a mkv file of about 6GB.

    Connect Crucial directly to the computer’s USB-C, to mu Dell’s own SSD , write 275 MB/s read 465MB/s

    Connect Crucial to a USB 3 adaptor (Nimaso) and to my computers USB-C hub of USB3 read 380MB/s write 313MB/s (Coonect with my Dell’s own SSD)

    Connect Crucial as above but to an external USB3 HD on the same USB-C Hub, write 106MB/s read 94MB/s

    Connect as about but to my computer’s own sata HDD Write 130MB/s read 127MB/s

    At £71, I am more than happy, not so long ago I bought a WD SSD also 1TB, got it for £110, now £143. Th The next fast USB is a Sandisk Stick Extreme Pro, it cost from £32 to £64 on Amazon depending which side of the bed Amazon wakes up that day, and that that you get only 128gb, this Crucial drive you get 1000gb at £71 (Now £74 I bought another one), This has to be a good deal.
    Edit:

    After using the drive for 5 month…
