I purchased the Samsung SSD T3 and immediately started to use it for the backup and transfer of files across four different Windows Systems. My primary system is running Windows/7. My first task was to backup everything on my Windows/7 system using the USB-3.0 port and this went very well and ran much faster than my backup to a network attached drive. My next task was to transfer 13 Gigabytes of data consisting of 9,623 Directories with 63,434 Files (a mixture of Data Files and Programs of various sizes). I have a script (a Windows CMD File) to copy of the directories and all sub-directories. The copy was fast and worked the first time. Next, I ejected the SSD from my Windows/7 system and attached it to my Windows/10 system. I started the copy from the SSD to the C Drive and it was looking good. However, about halfway through the copy it started posting error messages. On the fourth attempt it completed the process successfully. I was not too worried at this point. I have experienced problems with Windows/10 and external USD devices before. Also, I noticed my SSD came formatted with exFAT. I have data files larger than 4 gigabytes so I thought I might be pushing the envelope. I decided to re-format the drive and use NTFS since all my systems are Windows Systems. I have repeated the file copy/transfer from and to all of my Windows Systems (including the Windows/10) and everything has met or exceeded my expectation.. One last comment, the copy of the 13 Gigabytes of data using the SSD attached via a USB 30 port took 6 minutes and 23 seconds. The same task takes over 25 minutes when copying to a network drive.

NO encryption on a MAC -

Was hoping for a possible update so the encryption would activate but this is what happens when one tries to activate -

"T3 Log In Activator for Mac quit unexpectedly."

      It's fast, has a small form factor and is simply plug and play. I'm using it for home security video storage and my system formatted the drive and was saving to it within three min.

              When first plugged in Windows 8.1 and 7 took just a few seconds to configure driver. Plugged it into USB2 and took +-20 min to backup pictures, +- 20GB. Plugged it into USB3 and took 15-20 sec to backup +-2GB movie. Very pleased with speed.

                  This is exactly what I was looking for. A small compact external SSD drive as an addition to my Samsung notebook series 9. I like the fact that it is small and very lightweight. It's powerful enough to use in the application I needed it for. Great product. Would recommend it.

                                          I've been using portable hard drives so far and after using this little wonder I'm totally spoilt. Superb speeds, excellent form factor and build quality. Wish they gave a type c to type c cable at this price point though.

                                          The T3 login app has been repeatedly crashing on my mac, I think it is a software issue to be patched by samsung. Transferred a couple of files over 1gb each and got copied in a jiffy.

                                          Totally satisfied with this drive.

                                                Purchased this updated version of the T1 for use with a digital mixer (QSC TouchMix16) to record live audio. It was easy to find a free utility to format the drive to FAT32 (required by mixer) and now have a very fast, reliable, portable, easy-to-use method of capturing lots of audio data.

                                                      This product is small and very convenient. This makes it very portable and backs up the work on my hard drive.

                                                        Was hoping for a possible update so the encryption would activate but this is what happens when one tries to activate -
