costco 8TB drive with usb-c hub-$139...what are your thoughts?

so I picked up this hard-drive from costco. From the photos it looked like it didn't use a wall-wart...instead powered off of the USB laptop port

not image DOES NOT SHOW any power cables...just the USB cable!!

I got it home, it instead it has a wall-wart (with switchable adapters for wall plugs)

so I powered it up, gave it a try....it seems slower than my 5 TB portable drive...

here's what crystal mark performance test shows...

sorry for pasting an image...dpreview didn't like text copied from notepad...all line breaks were ignored

any thoughts??

keep it or get something else?

thanks
