Question: External SSD drive slow on USB3 on MacBook Pro
Hi, I hope someone can help me before I send this product back.
I have just purchased the WD MY PASSPORT SSD 256GB for my MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2015), which has USB3.
The transfer speeds should be around the 500MB/s mark. I wanted the fast read/ write speeds for video editing on Premiere Pro.
I have checked the speed using Black Magic Disk Speed Test and I can only get around the 200MB/s which is not what I was expecting at all.
Is there something I am missing here? Any advise would be appreciated as I don’t want to have to send the drive back.
Thanks in advance,
MacBook Pro with Retina display, macOS High Sierra (10.13.3)
