Michael I 100% agree on the joy of Samsung T5 or similar SSDs (more drop-proof than drives too!) and how they pay for themselves and delight people.

I use multiple 860 EVOs which are decent, inexpensive, and offer 4TB capacity. Then I put them in cheap lightweight translucent cases that soothe airport security because they can see what they are.

I believe T5 and 860 series get around 500MB/sec...

Hopefully we soon move to the 2000MB/sec ones built on faster PCIe not SATA technology - just need them to be cheaper. Then Pawel's uncompressed dream perhaps can become reality... of course we'd also need nice big 16TB or 32TB drives. I easily blow through 4TB / day on Alexa LF.
