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

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.

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.

Faster load times for your Xbox One X!

21 January 2019
Before purchasing this hard drive, I did some research on the load speeds of the Xbox One X internal hard drive. The drive that comes with it is a 5400RPM, which to me is pretty lame for “The Worlds Most Powerful Console” (yeah I console game, but I also PC game, so “master race” blah blah blah). I found out that this drive reduces load speeds by a considerable amount. Not a huge amount, but enough to satisfy my patience.
