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

Ready anytime, anywhere

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.

I want many more of them

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.

Great Product, Great Price

20 June 2019
I've had this SSD for about a month now and it has worked brilliantly with my MacBook Pro (Touch Bar). Purchased to store my Virtual Machines on as well as some other high-speed files and to be honest it feels about as fast as the internal drive (it's not, but perception is).

Comes with both USB-C to USB-C and USB-C to USB-A so can work for either mode.

Highly recommended

Small Package Large Advantages

17 June 2019
I've been using this drive for video editing and gaming purposes and so far it has been an amazing experience, although my laptop only supports type-c USB 3.1 gen 1 still it performs much better than my ssd. I would greatly recommend, perhaps gen2 will blow my mind .

Sleek and perfect.

Incredibly portable with speedy transfers - just perfect if you need to work away from the office. Been needing one for far too long and finally got it. Not looked back!

Good portable option

16 May 2019
Drive has incredibly fast transfer speeds on USB-C and has quick, easy setup.

The physical size of the drive is compact and housed in powdered aluminium and has an excellent build quality!

This ended up being an impulse purchase, but I don’t regret buying this SSD. The small size of the drive means that it creates no bulk when stowing in my bag or with my other laptop accessories. As both USB-A and USB-C it has some nice utility as a modern day solution for portability.

Fast!

6 May 2019
I have to admit, Type C is fast. Transferring movies only takes about few seconds but I feel like I should have waited a bit before buying this because 500GB is too small for me. I would recommend buying 1TB at least.
