    I'm sure a lot of us will be recording to USB-C SSDs like the Samsung T5. The cable that comes with it is a little bulky and longer than it needs to be, so I started looking for options. Not many available. Here's one:

    Be wary.

    Do NOT use with Samsung Portable SSD
    October 17, 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
    I used this with my Samsung portable SSD and it caused my drive to fail. According to the data recovery company I'm spending almost $4,000 to recover my data from, the cable caused the NAND RAM memory chips on the drive to have developed dead cells inside and has locked the system into a “busy” state. I most definitely believe there should have been further clarification on any incompatibility issues this cable has with some devices. Not happy.

    That sounds like an Amazon review. How would a cable cause a drive to develop dead cells?

    People believe all sorts of nonsense, like “if I carry an umbrella it will not rain, leave home without one and it Will rain!”
    This really carries over in tech equipment, where the user just does not understand how the device works, and is ready to blame anything else as the reason.
    Cheers
