    Bought this to run in my Tesla Model S to save the dashcam footage and the Sentry mode.

    Better than a thumb drive as this thing is designed to be constantly written to.

    No issues with it- there are a few issues with the side cameras always recording correctly on Sentry mode, but that is a beta issue with the software, not a storage issue.

    This is quite a poor device.

    Testing while connected to my recent Dell XPS laptop, I was only getting speeds of 50MB/sec when transferring video files of average size.

    There is a burst initially of 200MB/sec or faster (probably due to some built-in fast cache), but only lasts for a few seconds. After that, the write speed remains painfully slow.

    Read speed is fast, at 250MB/sec or faster.

    My 3 year old yellow Western Digital Passport 2.5 inch USB 3.0 external mechanical hard drive can sustain a speed of 100MB/sec transferring the very same files (write and read), and that’s with encryption on the drive (Bitlocker).

    While the WD device is a bit bigger than the Integral external USB, it’s still very portable and the cost per GB of storage is 10 times lower.

    How can Integral build an external SSD device slower than a mechanical hard drive???

    Another issue with the Integral external SSD is the size of the USB cable and the custom connector: the cable is very short (much shorter than on the…

    This SSD is certainly small and lightweight. Transfer speeds are pretty decent too. After that, the scores go down. The main issue I have with this device is that is uses a proprietary cable connection – i.e. a non-standard connector at the end that plugs into the SSD itself. So if you forget the cable, loose it or damage it, then you cannot use the drive at all. I have also found that the cable supplied is prone to ‘drop-outs’ whilst connected, which is definitely a problem for me as I’ve been testing it as a TimeMachine drive with a MacBook. Lastly, read the small print: There is only a one month return window for this product after which, even if it develops a fault Amazon seem to be saying they won’t help you. Another reason to avoid it. Better to go for a known brand (in SSDs) that uses standard USB connectivity and consider the slightly higher price of those dievices money well spent.

    It’s a small and fast drive. Not much larger than a credit card but slightly thicker. It uses a standard USB3.0 connector like most traditional hard drives but does come with it’s own short cable which isn’t particularly bendy.

    It gets dropped by 1 star due to the fact that it is only formatted to FAT32, which means that it cannot natively take files >4GB and I only noticed it after I put a whole load of files on it. Copied them off, and then reformatted to ExFAT and copied them back on. Bit of a hassle, but the speed is quite impressive. And improvement of at least 50% over a traditional metal drive but up to 5x faster in certain circumstances (small files for example) as there is no head that needs to jump back and forth while writing.

    I am very disappointed that I received an Integral 960 GB portable drive with different specification than the images provided on Amazon. The speeds are 400MB/s Read and 370MB/s Write NOT the 460MB/s advertised. The cable is much shorter than the advertised image keeping the SSD portable drive dangling from my desktop computer. When you connect the drive, you will get 894 GByte not 960 GByte. The drive is formatted using F32 Format not NTFS Format. I gave two stars overall rating as I feel I have been cheated. See images provided.

    Bought this little SSD because was sick of returning 64gb memory sticks. Had purchased 3 different memory sticks and returned all 3 over a 3 day period, the speeds on these were very slow (half the speeds of my 16gb memory stick which is over 4 years old, so don’t know what has happened with memory sticks lately). I knew it couldn’t be my pc or usb 3.0 input as my 16gb memory stick was getting much faster speeds than the 3 different 64gb sticks as the pc is only 3 months old and top of range for price value. So took the chance on this solid state drive, glad I did tried this as soon as it was delivered and the speeds are a lot better than what I was getting from the 3 different 64gb memory sticks. Speeds from the 64gb sticks were 15 to 25 mbps, speeds from this solid state drive are 80 to 130 mbps, so a lot better, not the speeds advertised but I think the speeds depend on your system. I’m happy with the speeds of 80 to 130 mbps, compared to the slow speeds of 15 to 25 mbps on the…

    Very old laptop and saving for a new one. I have been running linux from USB 2.0 for about a month and a half on this wee drive. With the read/write speed there is not much point in USB 3 connection because USB 2 can handle the max speed.
    From old SATA interface SSD the laptop booted in about 12 seconds, from this one in about 20.
    I am pleasantly surprised by how well this performs running Manjaro KDE/Plasma Linux from USB (formatted as ext4) until I get a better laptop (then I’ll re-use the drive, of course). It appears sturdier than a USB-drive, but I have not put that to the test. It easily powers from USB. For the money I can say that it is good, though in a more modern laptop the I/O speed on this one will be the limiting factor.
