Sorry to put a downer but What's is the point? Crucial MX500 250gb costs £67. a usb to sata adaptor costs maybe £7, a usb to sata case costs £9 with usb 3 cable. For a drive that will outperform this and will have greater reliability.

I have both the cable and the case and they both work flawlessly with my SSD.

This is well overpriced for a less than best in class SSD

Does usb-c not allow for faster transfer speeds?

Does usb-c not allow for faster transfer speeds?

It may do theoretically but as USB 3 is up to 3gb/s and 3.1 up to 10gb/s the speed of your flash drive (max 515 mb/s) will be the limiting factor here, not the speed of the interface. The Crucial will be faster than this WD.

Any decent deal for external ssd 256gb?
Why are they so ugly looking.

Well there is this deal, but I don't know what drive is in it and it is £10 more than buying a better drive and case yourself from Amazon.

I carry on my key-chain an external ssd with a full-blown ubuntu on it, so that I can plug it to any computer (ideally has usb 3) and use my own system.

The ssd in the post requires an additional cable though, but still not that far from key-chainable I think.
So external ssd is the same as internal? Only difference is the case and I can insert and take ssd anytime?
Might’ve been a good idea to put ‘type C’ and ‘external’ in the description
