    Thanks OP. My current SSD on its last legs, so perfect timing

      Just curious, how did you wear out SSD, and how long did it take? Asking to understand what's the sort of mileage expected out of these. Spinning Disks are notoriously unreliable if you are carrying in your backpack.
      Im planning use a Samsung T5 SSD as an OS partition for external drive. Just wanted to know what can I expect in terms of life expectancy.,

        I've been carrying spinning HDD in my bags for many years, and they are all actually still working. Pretty infrequent use, but not particularly careful with them either. Solid state is great though =}

        SSDs get choked up if they start to get full. by no means a technical explanation, but platter drives just overwrite deleted data like a steam roller, whereas SSDs utilise wear-leveling software in the controller which, rather than steam rolling over deleted data, will constantly try to fit fragments of data where it can to keep the NAND writes as even as possible.

        its advised to partition SSDs with approx 30% unused space for this reason.

        not saying this is the case with the other guys, just what I have found when researching them.

        more than anything I would expect the enclosure/usb port/cable to fail before the SSD itself, but thats based purely on my experiences with SSDs and cheap external enclosures :)

    Hi,

    Planning to buy one of these, and would like to use a secondary "main drive" and install some programs on this drive. i use high end modelling softwares.

    can always plug in always whilst using those programs that are installed on this. The reasons to do this way is:

    I can still buy a laptop with basic ssd which 256gb/500gb and I can use as external main drive.

    Any thoughts.

    TA.

      Get or make (buy an enclosure) a cheaper external ssd drive, you're mainly paying for the ruggedness at this price. Alternatively buy a 1 or 2 tb ssd and replace your laptops interior drive with it
