Samsung T5 Portable SSD 1TB Review


Originally published at:

Welcome to Myce’s review of the Samsung T5 Portable SSD (hereafter referred to as the T5).
The Samsung T5 is a highly portable, high speed storage device, which could be used for carrying large amounts of data from one location to another; simply transfer the data you want to take to the new location onto the T5, stick the T5 in your pocket, arrive at the other location; plug the T5 into the new host PC or laptop, then copy the files over to the new host PC or laptop at lightning speed.
My colleague Wendy Robertson reviewed the previous version of the Samsung Portable SSD, the T3, and found it to be an outstanding product (You can read Wendy’s review of the T3 by clicking here). The T5 takes a step forward by providing support for connection to a computer via a USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps) port, whereas the T3 is limited to a USB 3.0 (5Gbps) connection.
The T5 also introduces the use of Samsung’s fourth generation 64-layer MLC V-NAND. Please read on to see what we make of the T5.
