Samsung Electronics America has launched the Samsung Portable SSD T5 – the newest portable solid state drive (PSSD).
Samsung SSD T5 delivers speeds of up to 540 MB/s1 – up to 4.9 times faster than external HDD products.
Samsung said the new T5 is designed especially for content creators, business and IT professionals as well as mainstream consumers to give instant, easy access to data.
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 51 grams, fitting in the palm of your hand. The aluminum exterior comes in two distinct metal finishes – Deep Black (1TB and 2TB models) and Alluring Blue (250GB and 500GB models).
Samsung 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 available for Android smartphones and tablets for 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 price of the 250 GB model of Samsung SSD T5 with a three-year limited warranty will be priced at $129.99.
“T5 will exceed consumers’ expectations for external storage by offering faster speeds and a solid design that is lightweight and conveniently pocket-sized. It is the ideal portable storage product for consumers and professionals who are in search of a fast, durable and secure device,” said Un-Soo Kim, senior vice president of Brand Product Marketing, Memory Business at Samsung Electronics.
