  1. These are the drives I switched to in July. Already filled up a 2TB so I ordered a few 2TB and another 4TB. Very nice size. The M1 Pro Max and M2 Pro Max Macs do not benefit from the enhanced speeds at all. So I’m sticking with the X9s moving forward.

    Details?

    I peronally have a few of the suspect sandisks, but i bought a toshiba external to back those up in case they go bust. No budget to outright replace them right now.

    Because of the very weird way the Apple Silicone works, it is not able to use the full speed of USB-C 3.2 Gen 2x2. This is apparently a very specific standard of simultaneous 10Gbps channels. I haven’t been able to achieve more than 1,000mbps with anything on my MacBooks (I have a 16-inch M1 Pro Max and 14-inch M2 Pro Max). But, it’s capable of Thunderbolt 4 and all the beautiful features that come with that - including support for 40Gbps, just not on the Gen 3.2 2x2 standard. I honestly don’t know enough here to go into more detail. But I can tell you that I can mount an X9 and X10 into the same port and they run at the same speeds on benchmark tests.
