    Key Features

    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 most external HDDs**. Transfers and backups of large-sized data including 4K videos and high-resolution photos should be much quicker and faster.
    * Performance may vary depending on host configuration. To reach maximum transfer speeds of 540 MB/s, the host device and connection cables must support USB 3.1 Gen 2 and the USAP mode must be enabled.
    ** Based on internal test results comparing with a Samsung external HDD 500GB. Test system configuration: Asus® Strix Z270E Gaming motherboard, Intel® Core™ i5-7600 @3.5 GHz, DDR4 1066 MHz 8 GB, OS-Windows® 10 x64, Performance measurements based on CrystalDiskMark 5.2.1.

    Metal minimalism
    The top to bottom metal design and rounded unibody is designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. The T5 comes in two distinct aluminium finishes - an alluring blue for 250GB and 500GB models, and a deep black for 1TB models.

    Compact and light
    Smaller than the average business card, 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 full metal body, so it can handle most drops of up to 2 meters*. The optional password protection with AES 256-bit hardware encryption keeps your personal and private data more secure*. It’s all confidently backed by a 3-year limited warranty.
    * The internal free fall shock test was conducted under controlled conditions.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for external storage Having used old school external hard drives for years the newer usb3.0 drives seemed to be fast but these SSD drives are next level! More durable, faster to use and tiny - you'll never buy HDD again once using these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Portable SSD The unit works very well, high speed transfers, no moving parts. The MacBook that I use with it has a hard drive with only 256GB (SSD), so this is a great way to increase storage without voiding my warranty.
