Nice compact size and fast USB-C Speeds

Been using this for a few days now, and I really like the size and speed of the drive. I also really like the short USB-C cable and small USB-C to USB-3 adaptor. Very handy!


    Great Size, Decent Speed

    I love how small and indestructible this bad boy is. I can edit RAW 4K footage from a RED on it at 50% res. Not bad when you are on the go, which is me 99% of the time. It does get pretty hot though... that is probably the only downside.


      Great Portable Drive

      This is a very compact drive. It is designed for travel and works quickly for video editing and is very responsive compared to spindle drives.
