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 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 Brings new life to my iMac - Thank you! I use two of these drives to bring new life to my iMac. Using the 3.1 USB interface, I use these devices in a RAID 0 configuration to get 730 MB/s Writes and 620 MB/s reads. One device alone will do 420 MB/s reads and writes. I have my OS on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Portable Storage for my large Construction drawings Large blueprints have always been a pain in my industry - not anymore! With 2TB of storage, I am not even worried this will run out of space and it's durable too - which is what I need. Now, if they can come up with a build-in external keychain loop so I can hook it to my briefcase and not lose it it would be PERFECT!!

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 4 out of 5 by from Good drive in most cases... I bought this to replace an older 256 G drive that could not hold any more photos. It works very well, but in some situations it will not be recognized by scanners. This is a function of the scanner design and the 3.1 USB connection. If you are saving research material, take along a USB that you know works, then transfer those files to the T5 later.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not supported!?! The good: Very small and travel friendly allowing me to lower the weight of my luggage The Bad: Expensive and still not as fast as Thunderbolt. The Ugly: Will not connect to my brand new smart TV LG C7 55" 4K UHD HDR OLED webOS 3.5 Smart TV (OLED55C7P). Unlike all other drives i have my video footage will not play from this drive even though i have disabled password protection. Which defeats one of the main purpose of getting both this drive and this TV so i could view my MP4 4k video files direct from this travel size drive. I have submitted a ticket to see if there is a work-around.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The 2TB productis overpriced The 2TB product should be substantially cheaper..it only needs one case and is only marginally cheaper than the cost of 8 of the 250gb drives. .
