Cutting-Edge USB-C SSD Backup Drives For Apple MacBooks

USB 3.1 Type-C connector computer drive products are arriving to market quickly. If you're looking for a 12" MacBook compatible SSD backup drive to take advantage of the new SuperSpeed Plus specification, there's already a decent variety of Apple-friendly storage solutions available. Most are USB-C enclosures for DIY USB 3.1 Mac backup drives while we wait for major drive makers to start adopting it broadly across their product lines.

Samsung T5 USB-C Portable SSD Drive

Starting At $100 USD Capacities To 2TB


Although LaCie was first to announce an Apple-friendly backup drive with a native USB 3.1 Type-C interface, it's yet to ship. In the meantime, Samsung has been very, very aggressive in both coming to market and extremely low price points for 250GB to 2TB of solid-state drive capacity. And don't forget, Samsung's SSD's benchmark at the top of the charts with excellent performance few competitor's can match.

Do note though, the Samsung T5 drive featured above comes with a USB Type-C to USB 3.0 Type A cable for use on a wider variety of older computers. If you don't have a USB-C to USB 3.0 dongle / adapter / multi-port hub and want to connect one directly to a recent USB-C MacBook you'd want to order a simple Type-C to Type-C cable.
