Though if you're looking for a M.2 SATA drive to use in your desktop from the start, the WD Blue 1TB is basically the same price. No shucking involved and you won't void your warranty. If your computer supports NVMe, the HP EX920 is on clearance at CC for $110.
Careful buying HP SSD, they no longer support it. ( Basically no Warranty)
and will only warranty if it came from a HP Computer. ( that is what HP Rep said, When I called in
asking for HP SSD S600 Warranty)

It's Costco - they'll take pretty much anything back

I haven't tried it, and I cannot remember where I read that it was compatible, so now I'm doubting my memory. I thought it was on these pages but I couldn't find it again:

Unfortunately, even with a Thunderbolt 3 connection it maxes out at 1000 MB/s. The SSD maxes 3000 MB/s when directly connected to a M.2 PCIe and only 40MB/s when connected to a USB 3.1gen1 port. Unfortunately I only have a one Thunderbolt 3 connector and I need it for my docking station. I should be able to get around 550MB/s with USB3.0

In short save your money and buy this if you won't be using this with a USB 3.1gen2 or later.
The reason you are only getting 40mb/s on the USB port is because your cable isn’t good enough and it’s running at USB 2 speed. I had the same issue and bought a new cable specifically designed for high speed USBC to USB A and the speeds are what they should be.

My receipt says 90 days.

Would also like to try this on a Pi 4, but I wouldn't expect myself to get around to giving it a go until 2 months and 29 days from now lol.

When you look up reports of which USB adapters work to boot the RPi4, you also need to consider how recent the reports are. I once got a known working adapter made by Eluteng, and a couple weeks later ordered another, but the manufacturer had changed it without changing the name or model number and it no longer worked.

Thanks, apparently I don't own that cable (and I have a good assortment of USB-A to USB-C cables). It's too bad the USB standard is confusing as hell. Cables aren't clearly labeled 'USB3.1 genXxY rev3 5Gbps on Tuesday and Thursday only after 5pm'

I am thinking of getting it for that reason. Then again I have fiber internet, so I could just erase and redownload games as needed to my XSX

IMHO the quality is pretty good. I've been using one of these in my Tesla for year now for dash cam/music library. I do like it. The cable is to a USB-C with a small connector from USB-C to USB-A. The connection to that connector is a bit loose & drop the connection if you have it plugged into a laptop & walking around or something. So if you want it for the USB-C = fantastic, but if you want it for the connector to USB-A just note this issue that the devise should be kept static.

From my research not all games can be played from an external drive, haven't look up recent information but this was a list from 5 months ago:
