Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insanely Fast. Works with everything I have I have partioned out the drive so some partions work with my mac for TimeMachine and the other works as a normal drive for mac and PC for transferring files. AND THE SPEED!!! I transferred 44.45GB of movies onto my computer in 1 minute and 20 seconds! And it wrote them onto the drive in 1 minute and 38 seconds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First SSD I love this unit. I recently decided to put all my music on one drive. This drive is fast. It took me just under an hour to transfer 12700+ songs from two drives into the Samsung. The speed is impressive even though I don't have the latest generation USB, just a 3.0. I already had a soft cushion case for it which I bought somewhere in my travels and the hard drive fits like a glove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent little drive I purchased this in order to store my RAW photos and it has worked flawlessly. It is very fast, event without the latest USB ports, and I really like the encryption capability. I can not recommend this drive more. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speed Nirvana. Using this portable SSD in conjunction with an onboard SSD in my laptop is like speed nirvana. I can do file backups and disc image backups in such little time that it encourages frequent use, which is wise. To facilitate my backups I use the free AOMEI backup tool downloaded online. I believe my very fast backups are the result of two (2) SSD's working together. If you have a typical mechanical hard drive in your computer then you probably can still expect good performance but perhaps not as fast. Also, this Samsung T5 is very small and lightweight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Powerful ++ It's light weight No heat issue Connects instantaneously Copy/Paste is fast, I mean honestly it's fast Password protected __ The Type-C wire is a bit annoying, as it's very thick & hard. It gets difficult to fold easily and to keep on the desk. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outrageously Fast I am using this external SSD in conjunction with a Samsung internal SSD in my desktop PC. The data transfer speeds are AMAZING. Using this 1 TB drive with the USB 3.1/Gen 2 cable is delivering the indicated speeds. I have also upgraded my laptop to a Samsung SSD and they are ALL providing outrageously FAST data speeds. I would heartily recommend ANY Samsung SSD. These are GREAT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost a straight 5 star rating I love this little storage disk. It's so compact and fast. I can carry all of my files with me in my pocket. The only reason I give this less than a 5 star rating is that the plug is a little loose so when bumped the computer thinks the disk was disconnected without closing out. Sometimes this corrupts the storage medium so the unit needs to be re-formatted. Otherwise it's perfect. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
