In the current climate, with the NAND shortage and subsequent price hikes, this is a pretty good deal for an SSD.

Can the drive be stripped out and used in a laptop?
Good reviews, but then they would be, all but one are from 'freebies'!

This is a portable SSD with USB connector on.

Samsung don't do an EVO that competes with this - they do the Samsung T3 and T5, both of which costs a fair bit more than this.

Was thinking the same thing
It says: speeds up to 550MB/s read and 400MB/s write, but this is an external portable SD card connected via USB port. I'm currently looking at the the 2.5 internal SSD drives and they have similar read/write specs. How can that be? I woulkd have thought a drive connected directly to the MB would be faster than a USB port.


Any help appreciated, thanks.

Nope. 2 minutes googling found this : imgur.com/gal…Eg9

I think there are on clearout as Micron announced they're closing down the Lexar division a couple of months ago.

Cool. Thanks for posting the video.

If you look on Amazon US in the reviews, there's someone claiming 645 MB for Write 720 MB for Read speeds.
Maybe Photoshop played it's part, who knows?
