“Hooking the fast T7 up via USB 3 limits its speed. Don’t do that if it can be avoided.”

What is the faster protocol then?

Usb 3.2gen2 is usb3 also. Even with UASP.

USB-C is the faster protocol. See the screen grabs from disk speed test. Maybe protocol is the wrong work. USB3 was just a whole lot slower than USB-C

Word … not work. Maybe protocol is the wrong word.

USB C is a connector, not a standard that denotes speed, isn’t it. If connected to a recent Mac one will get a Thunderbolt 3 connection and thus faster speeds. This may be true on some Windows machines as well.

Folks may also want to consider the Rugged SSD:

I have one in orange and it works well.

The T7 is faster when it is writing data to the cache, slower than the T5 when writing straight to memory. In other words, large data files won’t read/write as fast as small data files. When the file size fills the cache, read/write speeds drop below those for the T5.

Hmm… interesting. How do you know this or how do you test this? I’ve put a lot of really big video files on the T7 but haven’t noticed performance that is less than that of the T5. I’m working on very similar jobs, one on a T5 and one on a T7. The next question is WHY would this happen?
