ORICO 1TB Portable SSD Review
I literally just hooked up this drive a few minutes ago, so I have no idea in terms of longevity. That said, I also have a 2TB Samsung X5 that is about 2 years old and doing fine, and I am running everything off of an Apple Mac Studio Ultra. I am, of course, connecting to the Studio using the short Orico USB-C cable to a Thunderbolt 4/USB 4 connector on the Mac. So I do feel that I am giving this beast its proper opportunity to shine.
I just downloaded and installed the Blackmagic Design Disk Speed Test. I used the 1GB and 5GB stress tests for both of these SSDs. My X5 was delivering about 2600MB read speed and this Orico SSD is giving me about 2750MB; this is on the 5GB test the manual says should be most accurate. (See photo.) So we can say that this Orico SSD is slightly faster than an older X5. When you consider that the X5 is now selling for $900, it’s a no-brainer to get this instead of the Samsung, with potential longevity notwithstanding.
Overall, I am pretty happy with the ORICO 1TB Portable SSD.
