I am using it for Time Machine backup of a 2015 5k iMac. First backup of 400 GB (half of files were photos) went at about a consistent 200 mb/sec from the 1 TB ssd hard drive of the iMac. This includes write times, which are, of course, slower than read times, so I was pleased overall. Has a blue activity light, which I missed on the SanDisk 500 ssd external, and an all-aluminum enclosure, which kept cool throughout the first and subsequent backups. Yes, it is bigger than the Samsung T3--which I also looked at--but this SanDisk had no problems with drivers or any of the configuration stuff that made me antsy with the Samsung (and I love Samsung). I just plugged it in, reformatted it to Mac OS journaled in Disk Utility, and I was good to go. I wanted a quick way to do a restore, and this seems to fit the bill. Durability? Don't know, as it is still new.
Wow - just wow. Was debating this forever based on cost but I pulled the trigger. Really well built drive that's gorgeous. Wait, did I mention fast? Sorry - I didn't run a speed test but after copying 564GB of photos and video to it, when I launch Windows Explorer in Windows 10 - everything is instantaneous. It's just really fast. Love the fact that it's USB 3.1 C gen 2 - it works really well with my new Dell XPS 9550. I debated between this and the SSD T1 or T3 from Samsung but I read so many mixed reviews on those I went with this. So far so good. Pull the trigger!
TL;DR: DO NOT BUY THIS DRIVE IF YOU OWN A 2016 MAC w/ USB-C interfaces. It *hard-locks* the entire system, after a random period of time, EVERY TIME IT IS PLUGGED IN.
I can't remember the last time I wrote a review (maybe years), but I feel i have to as a public service. Quick credibility note: I own multiple prior SanDisk 1TB (960) products, and they generally worked fine; I have no axe to grind against SanDisk as a company, but this product, for Mac Powerbook 2016 users (MacPro, USB-C in my case) is a dog to the nth degree.
This piece of sh-t has consumed an inordinate amount of my time. After a huge amount of Googling, I finally discovered that other SanDisk products have hard-locked Macs, and require an insanely cumbersome firmware update process. See: [...]and [...] . NOTE: There is NO GUARANTEE that after going through hell that the OS X 10.11 firmware patches for the Sandisk 1.92TB will even work on a new hardware platform running 10.12.1, so DON'T...
