Only backwards compatible games can be run from an external drive. Native Series X games and those enhanced for Series X can only be run from the internal SSD or the expanded storage cards. Worth keeping in mind if buying an external drive for that purpose.

Wd 5 year warranty is point to be considered. Just be careful with enclosures as speed and recognition could vary. Also heat dissipation is important. Best thing is to benchmark both options inclusive long copy runs to see if speed throttled after some time. Since portable ssd are so new to market is to early to give appropriate answer as not enough data available.
this looks expensive
Better off getting a normal SSD drive and then using a USB C caddy/enclosure
Purchased this back in January. If you're intending to use the USB-C connector and your PC supports it, you might get near the advertised speeds. I have Gen3.2 ports, but only the USB A style. The cable Seagate bundle for this is deficient, so it acts as a bottleneck. This was confirmed by their customer support - who argued they only sold equipment, and didn't have any control over the product.
