Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The Oyen Digital Shadow Mini portable SSD is a small and lightweight drive that packs considerable space and fast speeds in a pocketable form factor that is also extremely attractive. In this review, I will highlight aspects of the design, my usage of the drive, and speed.
DESIGN: I was sent the silver color of the drive, and being an Apple fan, I loved the color because it matches my MacBook Pro. Check out the picture I posted in the customer images section to see what I mean. The drive comes in what seems to be an aluminum housing, and it feels very solid to the touch. There’s a very unobtrusive logo and model of Oyen Digital “Shadow Mini” on the front in white writing, and on one of the sides of the device, there’s the USB connector and status light. The bottom of the drive features four rubber non-slip feet, which in my opinion weren’t entirely necessary considering the portability factor of the drive, but it’s nice to have when...
Only had it for about a week but so far it has been great. Tested the read and write speed and got following:
Write 266MBps Read ~400MBps
These are great numbers!
I'm using it with a 2013 Mac Pro to hold my "home" folder and it is a massive improvement over the 7200RPM rotational drives I was using via Thunderbolt 1. I'm getting write speeds (USB 3.0) of 365MBps and read speeds of 350MBps. Beautiful design as well, small, unobtrusive & bus powered. Can't speak to the long term reliability but a nice drive to go with the new Mac Pro if yours is the stock configuration with a 256GB PCIe internal drive.
