Samsung Portable SSD T5 MU-PA500 - solid state drive - 500 GB - USB 3.1 Gen is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buggy software. Do not set up security features! Love the design and capacity. I'm using USB 3.0, so my speeds max out at 422 mb/s.I'm currently running an iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017), and had serious problems installing the Samsung software that came with the drive. Mac OS security blocks 2 steps of the installation, but you can supposedly allow them from System Preferences. The only problem is that I could allow one of two of the processes, and there's no way to fix it. I've run the uninstaller script that Samsung provides even after a clean reinstall, I get the following error from the Samsung Portable SSD app: No Samsung Portable SSD is connected. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling (with full restarts in between), and still get the same error. I didn't set up their security features, so I'm still able to use the disk. The software, however, is borked. If I'm not using the security features, I'm not sure why I even need the app.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Portable SSD 2TB is not connecting with Mac Initially the device was connected with Mac and copied 200GB of files. When I was trying to use Portable SSD software to connect with SSD drive it was not recognizing. Suddenly the Samsung SSD 2T drive stopped working and now I'm not able to retrive files from the drive. When I connect the devie to Mac it's showing 44MB and the drive format is also corrupted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super quick! I use this alongside my laptop as a backup device. Its small size makes it easy to carry with me in my bag, and the read/write speeds are blazing fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First SSD I love this unit. I recently decided to put all my music on one drive. This drive is fast. It took me just under an hour to transfer 12700+ songs from two drives into the Samsung. The speed is impressive even though I don't have the latest generation USB, just a 3.0. I already had a soft cushion case for it which I bought somewhere in my travels and the hard drive fits like a glove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast! I purchased this portable drive to use as a home for Dropbox on my late 2009 iMac, since I'm not trusting the 9 year old internal drive and am booting the machine from another SSD. I love the performance this drive provides, even on a USB 2.0 connection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outrageously Fast I am using this external SSD in conjunction with a Samsung internal SSD in my desktop PC. The data transfer speeds are AMAZING. Using this 1 TB drive with the USB 3.1/Gen 2 cable is delivering the indicated speeds. I have also upgraded my laptop to a Samsung SSD and they are ALL providing outrageously FAST data speeds. I would heartily recommend ANY Samsung SSD. These are GREAT!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great speed, software a bit dodgy I have been using this drive for a few monthes now and I can say I like it a lot. My only real complaint is you have to have the Samsung software for the SSD installed on your device to use it. This has proved problematic when I try to use it on a new device. It won't let you access the drive to download the software, I had to get online and download it from the Samsung Support website. The spped of this thing is amazing, and once you experience this little ssd, it's hard to use a HDD. the size is really small, which makes it easy to take everywhere.
