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.


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.




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.



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.


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.




Management software

The T5 comes embedded with new intuitive software for PCs and Macs to easily set the password and get the latest firmware updates. You can also download the mobile app for Android smartphones and tablets.


Connect with ease

Connect the T5 to an extensive range of devices from PCs, Macs, smartphones and other devices. The included USB Type-C™ to C cable and USB Type-C to A cable give you seamless connectivity without the hassle of purchasing additional adapters.




Ready anytime, anywhere

Take everything, all your work and entertainment, with you. The Portable SSD T5 gives you simple and efficient access to your data so you can complete tasks quickly and on the move. Take along your documents, large-sized photos or videos, and get things done wherever you go.

Your best investment if you want an external drive

5 February 2019
Samsung 500GB SSD - owned for about a month now, I use it as a backup drive of my macbook, and the main drive I run final cut pro (video editing software off). Here is what I've noted:

Pros:

- easy to use
- has cables for both USB and the newer mac USB-C
- small and lightweight
- 3 years warranty?!
- seamless integration as a second (albeit external) drive on my mac
- blisteringly fast transfer speeds
- an absolute bargain of a deal!
-what more could you want?

Cons:

- None. Literally none. it's the total package.

To sum up: is an external SSD what you want? then look no further. Simple.

So far so good

12 December 2019
I got this at good price and have been happy with performance to date. I like the very small size and form factor, and find the 500GB size to be a sweet spot for such a device, giving enough storage on the go without exceeding a reasonable budget. Transfer speeds are very good and the fact it came with a 3 year warranty gives me confidence it should be reliable, which is important as I've only had it for just over a month so far.

Its great

25 November 2019
I bought this ssd so I could install red dead redemption 2 on to my pc without having to free up space on my other drives. I love that I can take my game files and play them on any pc/laptop of my choosing.

So far this portable ssd has worked fast and efficiently. Loading times are good too. The option for a password is also very handy.

I would definitely buy it again if i ever need more space and would recommend it to anyone

Prefect for Tesla Sentry Mode.

23 September 2019
This is my second unit. The first one I use as a backup for my notebook. This one I got for storing all of the drivecam and sentry camera footage from my Tesla. The speed of the device, and with the usb c to usb c cable, means I can also attach it to my cell phone or tablet to review the footage without having to use a OTG cable.

I want many more of them

12 August 2019
These HDDs were the final nail in the coffin for spinning drives for me. They're tiny, usb powered, fast enough to edit a 4K timeline from directly. Simply said, these are as close to perfect as I could ask for.
