Well guys... I am more confused than ever ! 😥
As far as I can understand from your posts - which I deeply thank ! :bowdown: - many solutions are available, some more expensive than others...
The fact is that my ignorance in this matter takes me to spend money unnecessarily when more "wise" solutions are available with the same or even better performance .
The data you kindly sent me is little information as I can't read it ! A shame, indeed. :blush:
I am sure others will be able to learn from what you all have written.

Anyway, I must thank you for being so nice and kind.
I must ask someone I know who can understand the "language" you used which no doubt, will save me some €uros...
Much obliged !
Cheers ! :)

I wish I had such a speed on the drive...

You’ll get that speed with sata nvme. They’re fast and they don’t produce noise at all. I use them, for almost 3 years no problems so far. That’s what you need. Or just get the one we already talked about. Nobody has to get confused by the presentation of computer’s hardwares specs here on this PHOTOGRAPHY FORUM.

Your iMac uses Thunderbolt Try this

FD Extreme - 1TB Portable NVMe SSD - Thunderbolt 3 40Gb/s - Up to 2800MB/s Transfer Speed - Black - Plug and Play with Mac - Intel Certified, WD Black Inside - (TB3X-2300N1TB) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08D9WKKT...abc_Q4EZ3S6H76X91BHQYCJN?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1.

or something similar. Get one of this, or shop around for something like it but, (this isn’t necessary) I recommend to get a back up hard disk too. In other words, make a copy of what you have in that ssd storage in the HDD. You only need the hdd for backing up purposes.

I use the same setup and I’m very happy with it but, I use a PC. With mac’s thunderbolt, it is actually even faster to access the photos. You can also buy the fastest NVMe drives and get a thunderbolt’s enclosure separately.

Can you translate that in mundane terms if you please ?
I think I will go to a 2TB drive.

I use an nvme drive to store the photos and access them from my pc but regularly back them up on hdd. I don’t access those photos on HDD. My PC uses usb 3.
2 TB is plenty.

This is just the enclosure/casing, you have to buy the drives separately

Edwin... you have been terrific ! :yahoo: :thumbsup:
Great help ! Now I am struggling where to buy in Europe. From AmericanAmazon is too expensive and it would bring me custom problems and expenses.
Allow me to disturb you again, later... let me make some searches before doing so !

I don’t know about Portugal, but in Nederland we have Coolblue or Conrad. Maybe Mediamarkt? Or Amazon UK?
