    This was purchased for use as additional drive for M1 Mac Min which has only 256G drive built in.

    It worked as intended but became very warm even if it was doing nothing, just being connected. Whether or not this is normal I don’t know, but I do know that excessive heat shortens the life of SSDs.

    It also disconnected from the computer intermittently, with the OS thinking that it had been removed, so was proving to be unreliable. Returned for refund, with no problems there.

    I note that there have been other buyers who have had the same problems.

    I have recently used the ‘extreme’ version and have loved it. So when I needed more storage I ordered 2 of the newer ones.

    The advert says that it comes with USB-C to USB-C with an adapter for USB-A. This is not so, and it just comes with a USB-A cable.

    I wish I could report the speeds etc, but neither of the 2 I purchased work!!!! At first it was worrying that the first one wasn’t recognised, but when the second one was the same I thought it could be my PC……. however after trying on another PC, and a MAC machine I could confirm 100% that both of the drives are faulty!!

    The actual feel of the drives are also very concerning. The ‘extreme’ drive I got about a year ago feels solid and is black, as listed. These are a very very very cheap plastic, and are actually a deep blue.

    I hope this is just a rogue batch, but has put me off the SanDisk SSDs

    I have now, finally managed to get a spanking new PS5 console. All the PS4 games stored on the SanDisk are recognised by the PS5 and can be played directly from the extended storage. The speed gains for HZD mentioned below are still maintained.

    Never, ever disconnect the SSD when the PS5 is in standby mode. Only remove it or reconnect it when the console is completely turned off otherwise you risk corrupting the entire SSD.
    Also, do not connect it via the USB A connector on the front of the console. Either use the front USB C port or either of the rear ports.

    This is a review for the SanDisk Extreme 1TB Portable NVMe SSD

    Was running out of space on my PS4 Pro and weighed up all the options for candidates for Extended Storage. With the prospect of eventually getting a PS5 (sigh), I wanted a device that would be somewhat future-proof when connected to the next-gen console.

    The device is barely much larger than a credit card and about three or four credit cards thick….

    Are you finding researching a new SSD a complete minefield? Theres so many out there and I didn’t know what to buy. I had 3 questions that I had to answer to come to my decision. Spoiler…they are not all equal!

    1. Q: is it compatible with my iMac 2020 and iPad Pro 2018? (I’d read loads about compatibility issues and even contacted SanDisk who wouldn’t commit to a clear answer). A: so far it works well with both, but see the speed results below.
    2. Q: what speed does it give in real life? (I wanted to have around 1000 MBPS read and write speed even after sustained use). A: I did a Speedtest (Black Magic) through the Mac and it’s giving approx. 950 MBPS read and write via the iMacs TB3 and USB port, which I’m very happy with. Remember, this is not a TB3 SSD. To get the full-rated 2000 MBps you’d need to use this with a USB 3.2 X2 port which my 2020 Mac doesn’t have. Speed when connected to iPad? I’m not sure yet, but I’ll revise this once I’ve worked it out. It’s very decent…

    it gets too hot, the information transfer is less than 50MB per second is a scam, I transferred 100GB and it takes 55min not recommended, I do not return it because I throw the box, but if I could I would return it
