June 15th, 2019 update: kept
So many pros and probably no cons except the price and the limited hard drive size if you were to compare it with a 4TB passport that is half the price.
The only reason that I bought one was that it caught my eye when it was on sale at BestBuy. For $250 Canadian I get a 1TB SSD drive that reads and writes at around 500MB/s. Nice toy especially the USB-C connector to my MacBook or USB-C to USB-3.1 when connecting to my MacBook Hub. Bought it thinking it would be great for keeping a bunch of general files locally.
However I have my NAS which gives me an average 80MB/s read/write and that is good enough for most of my daily usage and the NAS is accessible whether my MacBook is connected through a hub or wifi-AC.
I was never much of a USB hard drive guy.
So my purchase arrived today and it is still sitting unopened.
Alternatively for the same price of $250, I could buy 2x4TB drives at $125 each, one for my daughter and one for backing up my NAS. I mean like who needs 540MB/s read/writes?
Has anyone bought one? your thoughts? problems?
