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 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.*

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 1 out of 5 by from Not compatible with new Mac update I have not been able to access my files since updating my Macbook. It has been two months since I have been abvle to edit my videos or access my documents I need for uni.

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 5 out of 5 by from Supreme Music Storage Up to this point I've been using .5 Gb San-Disk SSDs, but then I discovered Samsung SSDs at a better price point allowing me to store many more mudic files for my dollar. The Samsung connects directly to my MacMini Thunderbolt system and is very fast. I'm more than satisfied with Samsung SSDs. Their premium SSDs are what you need for video.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality SSD, fast shipping, little communication Delivery was quick once the item shipped, although there was a frustrating period at first where I was informed that my order was "delayed" without any information as to how long the delay would be. It's been a good SSD thus far - it's compact despite its huge storage capacity, with very high data-transfer rates.

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.

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 5 out of 5 by from Great Solid State Drive. This is a great portable drive. Very small and very fast. A great addition to my computer that also has a SSD.
