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 USAP mode must be enabled.
** Based on internal test results comparing with a Samsung external HDD 500GB conducted under controlled conditions. Performance may vary depending on system environment and compatibility with USB 3.1. Test system configuration: Asus® Strix Z270E Gaming motherboard, Intel® Core™ i5-7600 @3.5 GHz, DDR4 1066 MHz 8 GB, OS-Windows® 10 x64, Performance measurements based on CrystalDiskMark 5.2.1 .
