Portable SSD 2TB

Amazon.com: BUFFALO External SSD 2TB - Up to 600MB/s - USB-C - USB-A - USB 3.2 Gen 2 (Compatible with PS4 / PS5 / Windows/Mac) - External Solid State Drive Stick - ‎‎SSD-PUT2.0U3B : Electronics

I've been buying these when they dip below $130 and parking them in these for super fast cached action. I don't use them for Channels but I bet they'd out-perform a thumb drive.

Long story short: Crucial 2TB SSDs with cache with a Sabrent SATA to USB enclosure. I use them here and there as portables then they eventually get installed on one of my 2 rigs when I need more space.

I stopped using Crucial ssds. Had too many early failures over the last 10yr or so. And when I worked in a tech shop most of the failed ssds were Crucial or Sandisk. Never had a single Samsung ssd fail on me.
