Storage made new

The Samsung Portable SSD T5 elevates 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 easy to carry and stores data securely.

Storage made new

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 external HDDs**. Transfers and backups of large-sized data including 4K videos and high-resolution photos will be much quicker and faster.

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 500 GB. Test system configuration: Asus® Strix Z270E Gaming motherboard, Intel® Core™ i5-7600 @3.5 GHz, DDR4 1,066 MHz 4 GB, OS-Windows® 10 x64, Performance measurements based on CrystalDiskMark 5.2.1

Metal minimalism

The top to bottom metal design and rounded unibody fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. The T5 comes in two distinct aluminum finishes - an alluring blue for 250 GB and 500 GB models, and a deep black for 1 TB and 2 TB 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 and compact, 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 drops of up to 2 meters*. The optional password protection with AES 256-bit hardware encryption keeps your personal and private data 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.

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 4 out of 5 by from One little quirk I bought this to use as external storage for my PS4. The speed and ease of use is incredible. The only thing I've noticed is that since I installed it, there has been erratic behavior from the PS4 controllers. After investigating, I have found that USB 3.0 and later connections can provide electromagnetic interference on 2.4 GHz bands and therefore may be the problem I've been having. So if you're going to use this drive as PS4 external storage, make sure you find a good shielded cable or one that is long enough to place the drive away from the console and the contoller. Other than that little quirk, this drive is purely amazing.

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 2 out of 5 by from Great drive, terrible cable Drive is a really nice design - sleek, sturdy & compact. The cable however is the worst I have ever used, whenever the drive or my laptop gets moved slightly the drive instantly disconnects. For a premium portable drive, the fact that it disconnects when its moved, is basically a deal breaker.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Still notworking with Catalina on Mac OS WAS a great product... but since the launch of the Catalina OS, it does not work anymore. The promised software update (1.6) does not work. A lot of money for an unusable product...
