Samsung today announced the introduction of the Samsung Portable SSD T5 - the newest portable solid state drive (PSSD) that raises the bar for the performance of external memory products.
The T5, built with Samsung's latest 64-layer V-NAND technology, delivers speeds of up to 540 MB/s - up to 4.9 times fasterthan external HDD products. Also, the T5 is smaller than an average business card at 74 x 57.3 x 10.5 millimeters (3.0 x 2.3 x 0.4 inches) and lightweight at a mere 51 grams, fitting in the palm of your hand. The aluminum exterior comes in two metal finishes - Deep Black (1TB and 2TB models) and Alluring Blue (250GB and 500GB models).
With no moving parts and a shock-resistant internal frame, the T5 can withstand accidental drops of up to 2 meters (6.6 feet). The Samsung Portable SSD Software for PCs and Macs based on the AES 256-bit hardware data encryption makes it easy to configure security settings and receive the latest firmware and software updates. A mobile app is also available for Android smartphones and tablets for even further convenience. In addition, the T5 includes two connection cables - USB-C to C and USB-C to A - for enhanced compatibility across numerous devices.
The T5 comes with a three-year limited warranty and will be available globally Aug. 15 with a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) starting at $129.99 for the 250GB model.
