Requires up-to-date USB port, still limited by USB, faster than networking

Strengths of the product

400mb/s write and 600mb/s read on usb 3.1 gen 2. Much faster than spinning disk usb drive. Smaller than m.2 drive + caddy.

Weaknesses of the product

very poor IOPS performance (probably USB limitation). Need USB 3.1 Gen2 to get full speed (about 400mb/s read speed and 200mb/s write speed on usb 3.0).

Additional Comments

I got this to transfer very large files between machines quickly (100GB+ transfers, multiple times per day). It's saved a lot of time in the first week alone. It's not ideal for hot-use data, like running games or VMS directly off of the drive. This won't match the IOPS speed of an actual, installed SSD, so don't expect that out of it.
