    external hard drive for MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017)
    I'm looking for a reliable external hard drive for my MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017). Has anyone found one that works.. The user ratings on the drives sold at the Apple store are not great. I want to use it for Time Machine and to get it before upgrading to Mojave. Suggestions will be appreciated.

    B&H Photo in New York is selling the Samsung T5 external SSDs at a discount. The 500GB is $117.99 and the 1TB $197.99. The T5 takes a Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C input. You have both on your 2017 MBP.

    I have the Samsung T5 and use it for CCC backup. I could use it for Time Machine but Carbon Copy Cloner is faster.

    I have a 1T Seagate ultra slim portable which has never let me down. About 40, 2T 60. Lots of colours so you don't lose it.

    If the shoe fits, buy it in every colour.
