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

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Power supply issue with this SSD This is a fast & light. However, it draws too much power from USB port causing power surge to my PC's USB ports rendering the SSD useless. Now I give up and revert back to USBs. To overcome power issue, I was advised to use a USB hub with its own power connection! Adding weight & cumbersome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect portable external SSD for my MacBook Pro I use the Samsung T5 as a boot drive for my 15" MacBook Pro. It allows me to run a extra operating system such as the Beta for the new macOS Catalina (OS 10.15) at a speed actually faster than the SSD inside my Mac. Its size and weight make it the perfect fast portable external HD at a very reasonable price.
