You mentioned the T7 speeds "were" great. What was the initial write speed of the T7?
It got hot after about 20 minutes of sustained use (transferring files to the T7). Haven't contacted Samsung directly.
Maybe the drive is overheating and that could be why it slows down. Could be a defective drive. Did you notice if the T5 got hot after using it a few hours?
The T5 got warm but I never had an instance where it dipped in throughput because of it.
T7 might be defective or overheated. There were instances where it slowed down to a halt but never corrupted anything or panic'd MacOS.
That does not sound normal or good. I would certainly be frustrated with a drive that acted that way. I would just return it for another unit.
Would this still work?macOS doesn't support Trim over USB.
I don't believe so, but I'm not specifically familiar with its capabilities now.Would this still work?
