While you can connect like that, it does not automagically have the same ability and transfer rates because you are creating a bottle neck with the 3.0 adapter. USB 3.0 allows a maximum of 5Gbps which I believe is half the speed of a 3.1 type-c. USB 3.0 only allows 0.5-0.9A charge rate, up to 1.5A on dedicated charging ports, 3.1 type-c allows 1.5-3A or even high power 5A(up to 100watts, enough to power monitors and laptops).

I owned a external HD that required USB 3.1 vs a USB 3.0, otherwise it wouldn't even work because it was powered by the USB 3.1 port, so this isn't really a good idea. Even if it does works, it'll be underpowered and likely get damaged or provide poor and unstable performance.

Seeing how both the old and new model still requires a separated USB cable (and not built into the frame), I'd be more inclined to purchase a USB-A to USB-C 3.0 adapter (quick example [amazon.com]) and deal with the price point of the former. If the additional dongle is a concern, then just tape it to the cable - done. Smilie

I see your point and 100% agree with you now that I know the latest model is a USB 3.1 device. The latest model's description lacked a bit of clarity onthe same portal's [sandisk.com] product page, as USB-C doesn't always imply 3.1 certification (and I've encountered many false advertising on those read-only speed metrics as well), but digging around the main product page [sandisk.com] clearly states it's USB 3.1. In that case, definitely go for the newer model!

It's not worth $25 for USB-C for 90% of people.

I bought the Samsung EVO 860 deal recently and plan to use it with an enclosure I bought. Hope that was the right decision over this.

Doesn't really matter on this drive because there's a SATA bridge on the device, and the chipset is limited to a theoretical max of 480 MB/s sequential read and 430 MB/s sequential write speeds anyway
