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

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.

Fast and reliable

This is the perfect hard drive to keep sound and sample libraries for music production, it's the kind of thing that you just plug and forgot about it. It's also very small if you need to bring your sound libraries to gigs or other studios. Highly recommended.

Super-Compact Super Drive!

Out of the box I like that this hard drive came with both a USB A to USB C cable and a USB C to USB C cable so I can easily use it with my phone, ipad, and laptop without having to buy additional cables.The read & write performance is very good, my backups take a lot less time now to complete.

High performance but not an 'out of the box' experience for Mac users

My aim with this device was to offload my iTunes and Zotero library from my iMac SSD to release an overloaded SSD.

My initial experience was that the disk ejected incorrectly upon Sleep. Sleep seemed to caus reconnect problems with the Zotero database. Very frustrating.

I eventually found the advice to

1. REMOVE the Samsung software that I had installed from the Samsung SSD. Reviews state it is (a) not needed by Mac and (b) Causes problems when you upgrade your Mac OS AND/Or switch the SSD to be used by another computer. See Irons, (2019, October 24).

2. Reformat the Samsung SSD to APFS - that gave me twice the data write speed wh...view more

Ya can't go wrong with Samsung on SSD...

Loving the size and the capacity Samsung SSD can offer. Of course, there are other brands, but I believe the quality of Samsung SSD is better, which can last you longer.

cheapest new computer ever

I picked this up to run the OS on a 2012 iMac that was starting to drive me mad going so slow at start up and running multiple applications. It may not be as fast as a new one, but it can't be far off! well worth it!
