I'm considering adding this to my Nvidia Shield TV. Does anyone know if the password protection on this external drive is an issue with the Shield? Thanks in advance.

Are you extending your Shield's storage with this? If so it won't matter since the Shield will format the drive. If you're just using it as an external drive to use like a USB stick then I don't think you'll have any issues.

Thanks, this helps a lot. I didn't know that the Shield formats the external drive. I want to extend storage as I have the 16GB version and it's almost full. I was worried that the password protection would interfere with its accessibility. I have another external Western Digital drive with password protection and some ridiculous software included. it's a pain in the neck!

Here's a comparison of the size of this drive compared to an 2.5" SSD in an external Orico tool-less enclosure.

Is a Samsung 860 Evo 500 gb in an enclosure significantly faster?
