External Samsung Pro SSD 2TB or Samsung Portable SSD T3 2TB


Mar 21, 2016
Hi everyone, I'm looking at purchasing the Samsung Pro 850 SSD (2TB) for external use and future internal use - just wondering if it runs slower when installed in an external drive? Initially I had looked at the Samsung Portable SSD T3 (2TB) to back up my critical data however it has the disadvantage of not being able to be installed internally.

Presently I am running a Samsung Pro 850 SSD (1TB) on my Dell Inspiron and will likely leave things this way until I upgrade my laptop - waiting for the next generation of NVIDEA graphics card and Intel processor to be available.
