Not much point in getting anything that does over 1,000 MB/s. As the limitation becomes the USB interface. I would recommend the ones around the 500 MB/s if you want the best bang for buck, but obviously moving the games across would take twice as long.

Honestly, I’m running an SSD in an enclosure that’s running around 500 MB/s and just moved Fallout 4 from that to the internet storage and saw very little change in loading speeds.

I wouldn’t get the Samsung. For not much more, you can get the WD My Passport SSD (Amazon Canada) which is twice as fast.

Edit : Ships from outside Canada, so not sure of the final price.

Not sure if this is at all helpful but I’ve got a few of these on my 2015 MBP just for external libraries and it loads up a large drum kit (1GB-ish) in just under a second over USB 2.

It’s WD My Passport 1TB I bought it on amazon. Yea it makes my PS5 hang and restarts then ask to submit an error report. I suspect that the SSD is overheating when in use

Completely forgot one I bought recently. The WD My Passport. It was a good price at the time. Worth looking at too.

I was going to go with the Samsung T7 but decided on the 1TB WD My Passport, along with a 5TB external storage HDD.

This was on a 16gb/256 mini.
