A cheap, Mac friendly external Thunderbolt 3 SSD drive is a reality thanks to the collapsing cost of SSD storage modules and broader adaoption of the Type-C Thunderbolt3 interface on now millions upon millions of Apple computers.

One example of a new wave of very-affordable SSD Thunderbolt 3 drives for your Mac desktop or MacBook laptop is this VisionTek solid state drive with reasonably snappy performance at an insanely great price point.

Depending on whether you intend to use this drive for cross-platform use or not, you may want to reformat the external SSD for MacOS upon arrival. Note that many new Intel PC's running Windows 10 now include Thunderbolt 3 ports as well, so expect broad market compatibility to help drive the price of Thunderbolt3 peripherals down to commodity price points.
