OK - thank you - will the exFAT format have any negative impact on the read/write speed drive? Or is there no impact in this regard compared to the "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" format?

not much difference in speed - especially for a one time transfer

On my Samsung T7 I use exFAT (the drive came with it) because it's the only fully capable filesystem that works on Windows, MacOS, and Linux. It seems more than fast enough.

If you want to encrypt the drive, or plan to use it heavily for creating files, it might be useful to transfer files over the network to your APFS formatted drive. Transfer will be slow but should work fine. If you can connect your machines by Ethernet cable, transfer will be fast!
