Storage Made New

The Samsung Portable SSD T5 helps to boost data transfer speeds to the next level and unleashes a new experience in external storage. With a compact and durable design and password protection, the T5 is truly easy to carry and is designed to store data securely.

Storage redefined

Fast transfer speeds

With Samsung V-NAND flash memory and a USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface, the T5 provides transfer speeds of up to 540 MB/s*, that’s up to 4.9x faster than most external HDDs**. Transfers and backups of large-sized data including 4K videos and high-resolution photos should be much quicker and faster than most external HDDs.

Fast transfer speeds

"* Performance may vary depending on host configuration. To reach maximum transfer speeds of 540 MB/s, the host device and connection cables must support USB 3.1 Gen 2 and the UASP mode must be enabled. ** Based on internal test results compared to a Samsung external HDD 500GB. Test system configuration: Asus® Strix Z270E Gaming motherboard, Intel® Core™ i5-7600 @3.5 GHz, DDR4 1066 MHz 4GB, OS-Windows® 10 x64, Performance measurements based on CrystalDiskMark 5.2.1"

Metal minimalism

The top to bottom metal design and rounded unibody is designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. The T5 comes in two distinct aluminum finishes - an alluring blue for 250GB and 500GB models, and a deep black for 1TB and 2TB models.*

Metal minimalism

* 1 GB=1,000,000,000 bytes, 1 TB=1,000,000,000,000 bytes. Lower capacity may be demonstrated by your computer due to use of a different measurement standard.

Compact and light

Smaller than the average business card, weighing just 51 grams and only 10.5 mm thick. The compact, light and slim T5 is the perfect portable storage.

Compact and light

Solid inside and out

Stay worry-free. The T5 has no moving parts and a sturdy metal body, so it can handle most drops of up to 2 meters*. The optional password protection with AES 256-bit hardware encryption keeps your personal and private data more secure*. It’s all confidently backed by a 3-year limited warranty**.

Solid inside and out

* The internal free fall shock test was conducted under controlled conditions. ** For more information on the warranty, please visit www.samsung.com/au/support

Management software

The T5 comes embedded with new intuitive software for the latest PCs and Macs* to easily set the password and get the latest firmware updates. You can also download the mobile app for compatible Android smartphones and tablets.**

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Bought 2 of these to have quicker smaller SSDs to work with film files. One works, and the other one after working for about 2 weeks now doesn't work. Isn't recognised by my Mac. Tried the forums and hacks and no good. Tried Samsung Support; no good. Too unreliable and over-priced junk. Going to throw them both out and write off as a bad investment and money lost. Never again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy so far. I bought one yesterday, after a long wait. I wanted to wait for 4TB, or ideally 16TB; but found justification for a 500GB. I love the blue color, and maybe like WD, Samsung can look at various colors soon. It's a great performing drive, works on both my PCs, and a Raspberry Pi (once you install exFAT support). It would be nice to have Raspbian/Debian software, and the price is good now that time has passed. I will make one comment to the person who compared the 2TB drive to 8 x 250 GB drives. It wasn't so long ago that larger drives had a premium, more importantly after years of experience I've found managing multiple drives is far more hassle than a premium price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast, light and reliable SSD storage costs more, but is a real proposition for travellers wanting to store and process their photos as they go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great size and reliability I bought this after 2 non SSDs crashed - the size and reliability are great and I only hope a 3 or 4TB option is close behind. Worth every $ for the peace of mind.
