How fast should an external SSD be?

    I have a MacBook Pro M1 with Thunderbolt 4

    I used a conventional HDD, which I installed in a hard disk enclosure. 
    The Hard disk enclosure works at a speed of 5Gbps. Of course, the HDD does not - that is clear to me.

    Using a SSD is the most important point due to accesstime and other overseen stuff.

    The transferspeed is not that important; measuring during C1 stuff shows an average speed of 300MB/sec . Running the external device on a USB 3.0 Bus is fast enough.

    C1 could work faster with better coding.

    This would mean that, for example, Crucial MX500 2TB 3D NAND SATA 2.5 inch would be sufficient.

    I am using an external SSD all the time, no problems. Buy an enclosure like Acasis and a SSD like WD Black and use Thunderbolt 4/USB 4 as a connection. Write/read is around 2700MB/s. Make sure that you leave at lest 25% free space on the SSD and buy an enclosure that doesn’t run too hot. Acasis is good, there is a new version with a fan, probably even better
