I bought the 1TB version a few months ago at Costco. Works well.

If 10 GB/s is good for you, its a deal.

DYI might save you $10 -15 at most.

And trying to get something 20-40 GB/s is a $140 case...

Steve,

Not so much. Average speeds for a USB-C external SSD. You can DYI an NVME SSD in a USB 3.1 Gen 2 box and get the same speeds and do it for about the same price. It's just a question of do you want a complete solution or a frankendrive where you build it from the stick and box of your choice. I've opted for frankendrives.

I've got the SanDisk 1TB Extreme PRO in 1T, and it's very quick.

I'll get it in 2T if the price is ever attractive enough.

I'll wait on any more NVMe DIYs until I'm sure one will get the most out of my XPG 8200.

You could DIY for 2500+ MB/s for about $350 -- $200 for drive, $150 for case..

There are a few 2000 MB/s cases for $80ish, so about same price as middle sandisk... which was $30 off @ $270 just a few days ago.

They are all getting a little cheaper... of course you also need a fairly modern machine to take advantage of the speed...
