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 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 1066 MHz 4 GB, OS-Windows® 10 x 64, 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 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 than the average business card, weighing just 51 grams, and only 10.5 mm thick. The compact, light and slim T5 is the perfect portable storage.

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 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 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 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 Excellent little drive [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Storage Unit Small, compact and powerful. It has great capabilities for uploading information through fast USB.

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 5 out of 5 by from Speed Nirvana. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 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.
