    "The square design of this SSD makes it infinitely more transportable. It's lightening fast and comes in a variety of capacities. Beware, though, that with constant use the USB connection often disconnects from the drive, rendering it and your data useless. With a small technological improvement, this drive could be amazing. Until then, use with caution."

    "The Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SSD is a great SSD drive for the money. You just have to be careful what you plan on hooking it up to. It does not work with PS4 or some AMD chipsets. Double check your specs against the specs of this SSD drive before purchasing. I have been very happy with mine and it is fast as lightning."
