Just out of curiosity, for I'm also interested in an SSD external unit, for what purpose will you use it? Simply for file back-up or for working files too? In other words, is this unit going to have lots of writing sessions in a day?

I’m investigating whether i can place the macOS Photos library on it. Not sure if it works. Note that this T5 also supports faster usb 3.1. Alas my late 2012 MacBook ‘only’ has usb 3.0. To answer your question: these photos will be accessed with a very low frequency. Surely not every week.
