When using external storage I assume these are the two fastest options currently available, but which one is actually faster? These links are two pretty comparable example products I think.

I understand that based on read/write speeds and transfer speeds the SSD is way faster, but does this play out the same way in real life? Because despite the USB C port on the drive, I believe it still connects to a device via USB 3.0.

The SSD is faster.  USB 3.0 speeds are faster than the drive, so no issues.
