500GB Samsung T3, External SSD, USB 3.1 Type-C, Transfer Speed upto 450MB/s, Retail, with USB 3.1 Type-C to Type-A Cable is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly awesome Ex SSD This is fantastic. Very small in size, but certianly big in power. Running through USB 3.1 I can play my games with no slowing whatsoever. Given the speed of 3.1 is comparable to SATA anyway, this is the best way to play PC games in my opinion. I can go from desktop to laptop with all Interface/Save files without having to duplicate everything. File transfer speeds are incredible too, even running through USB 3.0 ports, I can transfer 4k video in what feels like warp speed. True transfer speed data is easilly available through a quick web-search which will give quantatative value to my sweeping statements. One thing to bear in mind is that USB 3.1 is fairly new, so you may not have 3.1 compatibility on your motherboard. That said, this is one of the best SSD external drives out there, at any USB compatibility. This isn't the cheapest option out there, but with a few capacity options/price points, this is the benchmark external drive for everyone.
