Titled for USB-C specifically, but I wouldn't be surprised if this was initially for usb 2.0 and then they swapped the adapter to usb 3.0 and now USB-C with how their Manual only mentions Win7, XP, and Vista in terms of support for Windows OS.

On the subject of Windows OS: if you are saving files over 4GB in size to this thing (.zip files and the like) make sure to reformat to NTFS and not FAT.

exFAT doesn't limit file sizes and makes it work for both Mac and Windows

Looking at the images on the site, it doesn't look like USB type C.

Actually, I format them to exFAT, that way they are cross-platform for Mac, Win and possibly Android.

I'm getting so confused on read/write speeds!

Is 120-ish mb/s good? I'm getting a new iMac in a week and I need a new external HDD to take data from an older NTFS HDD. I'm debating between SSD and an ExHDD, but not sure what a good read/write speed is... I've seen 100 all the way to 500?

If you're just transferring data then read/write speed honestly won't matter too much. I'd just hope you have a USB 3.0 or faster interface, and you'll be able to get away with a HDD. For actually using a drive as your main boot device, go SSD. It's honestly the biggest improvement I've had in user experience with PCs since the mouse.

I just received it. The drive itself has a micro-B USB 3 female port, not USB-C as described. It's also black.

A little bummed about it as it should have been USB-C on the drive. Thus the pictures on the website are accurate.

It does however, come with both micro USB to USB 3.0 and micro USB to USB type C cables.
