Reviews
500GB Samsung Portable SSD X5, Thunderbolt3 External + USB-C NVMe SSD, 2800MB/s Read, 2100MB/s Write is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Costly but speed is great! We now have an external drive that can match or better internal sad. This is a NVMe flash drive and faster than SATA. WARNING! This drive does not support USB 3 of any gen. Also the cable that comes with the drive is Thunderbolt 3 standard, I tested the drive with a cable which comes with Samsung T5 it does not work with X5 due to the T5's capability to be used with USB 3 and the Thunderbolt 3 controller in the X5 does not. I purchased a HighPoint active Thunderbolt 3 1 metre cable to give better access from the port on my computer, the cable is expensive as are most Thunderbolt 3 cables. Worth having if you can use the speed of these items. DAVID JW

Questions & Answers

Will this work though a Thunderbolt 2 adapter?

I have an older imac with thunderbolt 2 if i get the tb 2-3 converter cable will this work as an external drive to boot from?
Asked by: wistle
I have just submitted a review of the X5, This is very new and therefore future forward technology. It does not work with USB 3 and a google search has verified that it is NOT compatible with TB 1 & TB 2. The Samsung T5 may be an alternative, having used this drive on TB3 iMac and USB 3 on a Mac mini 2012 which gives surprising speed. Sorry if this disappoints.
