  1. Beware of the old "Bait & Switch" by manufacturers – they are all at it. The initial drive components released in the first wave for review purposes are not necessarily included in the drives released on Amazon and others. Only one of the 3 principle ssd board components needs to be swapped with an inferior cheaper version to downgrade the performance.

  2. It's frustrating to see the M1 suffer with their numbers on TB3 Drive transfers; especially since this has been an issue that Apple has not addressed since I got the Mac Mini M1 back in January. I'm sitting here surrounded by enclosures and NVME drives trying to troubleshoot with no resolve. Frustrating indeed.

  3. If you ignored the sad fact that the M1 iPad Pro’s thunderbolt port performance is functionally the same as the 2018’s USB C port, would you recommend the G-DRIVE Mobile Pro SSD for the M1 iPad Pro? What’s your gut tell you?

  4. I am just thinking: 10 minutes times 60 seconds times 2GB/s writes – 1200GB (1,2TB) … you've written full drives during that time? But all things aside, yes, temperature is key regarding slow-downs and considering how I am using 500GB T5 SSD with my third mac … I would say, Samsung is the only company with total vertical integration of all elements in the drive. I would still go with X5.

  5. Great video, as I now expect from you. I am looking at setting up a mac mini for my pops and we will probably buy him a base model M1. He needs a lot of storage, however, so I am thinking to set him up with a nice external drive zip tied to the back of the monitor or wherever. I saw one company came out with a M.2 SATA SSD compatible port hub the mini can sit on, but sadly it's not TB compatible. What a waste of time to do that! I guess most people don't understand how much it affects performance. Maybe someone will make something like that, but TB… OWC perhaps?

  6. I am so glad you actually test the cache effects of these drives. Not everyone does this and there are TLC standard drives but there are also QLC drives that will slow down to a crawl.

    I bought a FIDECO USB 3.2 Gen 2 enclosure and a Samsung 970 Pro with the idea that this m.2 ssd has 2 bit MLC storage so that I can buy a Thunderbolt 3 case and then work with speed that will never slow, like the Envoy Pro FX. The 980 pro that supersedes this does not have this type of behaviour, slowing down from 5000 MB/s to 2000 after 120GB slc cache.

    I will never buy anything alse ever again

  7. I have an iMac (2019) i3 and it's slow as pond water. I have a Samsung T7 but I still find it slow. Can anyone give me a good recommendation. I upgraded to 32GB if that helps.

  8. This is an awesome video and I'm glad you covered it Jerry! I'm looking at the Lacie as I travel and am mobile a lot. Currently using a samsung t7, which is great but they get hot super fast.

  9. Thanks for making this video.

    What do you think is the best hub for the new m1 iPad Pro with thunderbolt 4? It needs to have 3.5 mm headphone jack, HDMI and card reader please.

  10. Hey Jerry! Great job, thanks. I have a few questions. Why are the read speeds always slower than write speeds? Isn’t it usually the other way around with HDs, if I remember correctly? Is it just inherent to how SSDs work, period? Also, why such a big discrepancy between the M1 and Intel machines on read speeds? Can it be the controller is better optimized in the Intel version? I hope Apple engineers can figure something out to close the gap. Last thing is how did the Apple SSD in the M1 perform? Did you run any tests on it? If so, what were the numbers on it? Thanks again!
