* Performance may vary depending on host configuration. To reach maximum read/write speeds of 2,800/2,300 MB/s, the host device and connection cables must support Thunderbolt™ 3.

** Based on the internal comparison test with Samsung external HDD 1TB (HX-MK20P12) and a Samsung portable SSD 1TB (T5). 
Performance of the PC Internal storage should be equal to or greater than X5.

Bought to be a data store for a 2018 MacMini. A bit pricey but works great - just plugin and go. Very fast read & write. Delivery was faster than expected.
