FEATURED SAMSUNG SSD DRIVEThunderbolt 3 Samsung External SSD
500GB, 1TB and 2TB Storage Capacities
Using NVMe PCIe memory blades of it's 860 EVO SSD technology, Samsung is delivering MacOS and Windows users blistering Read and Write speeds that only PCIe and Thunderbolt 3 can deliver. The sleek and portable X5 solid state drive (like many others on the market) feature a single Thunderbolt 3 port at the rear. It doesn't have a 2nd port to allow daisy-chain pass-through to other Thunderbolt 3 devices. As such, it's best connected directly to a PC or Mac's Thunderbolt 3 port, or as the last device in a chain.
Thunderbolt 3 'Compatible' SSD DriveIf your performance needs aren't too demanding, many PC and Mac consumers may find a portable Samsung Type-C USB 3.1 solid-state drive to be a more affordable alternative while still offering decent performance at a significantly cheaper price point than a comparably sized native Thunderbolt solution.
250GB to 2TB Storage Capacity
Remember, Thunderbolt 3 ports speak BOTH Thunderbolt and USB protocols, so your Windows PC or MacOS computer will be able to simply plug a USB drive with a Type-C cable into it and it will work at the best speed it's capable of -- even if it's not a native, high-speed 40Gbps TBolt3 device.
