Or you can just wash your hands if they’re that greasy.

Tobias Bönisch says:

Thanks for the test. I simply built my external SSD myself. I bought a Samsung 850 M.2 and the matching housing. The advantage here, I have a five-year warranty on the M.2 SSD. And the purchase was cheaper than the T5, which unfortunately only offers a three-year warranty. I have one question about the tested drives. Does only the T5 have a status LED?

I plan on investing in the Sandisk Extreme 1TB. It’s design and uber portability are really attractive to me.

Dave Atkinson says:

Perfect review man, thanks! I wanted to know if the SanDisk was rubberized and you cleared it up for me. Quick tip, you may want to use a “pop” filter for your microphone, or just wrap it in a sock.
