Samsung T5 500GB Portable External SSD with 30cm USB 3.1 Type-C & Type-A Cable

Super Speed Portable Storage

Available in up to 2TB capacity, the Samsung T5 Portable SSD is a light weight and portable storage solution. Not only that, it provides incredibly fast data transfer rates when connected to systems with a USB 3.x class port, while still being backwards compatible with earlier USB 2.0 ports.

Fast made Faster

When you've wrapped up that podcast or video shoot you just want to get the data downloaded and go home. Utilising the latest 64-layer 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.

* 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 UASP mode must be enabled.
** Based on internal test results compared to a Samsung external HDD 500GB. Test system configuration: Asus® Strix Z270E Gaming motherboard, Intel® Core™ i5-7600 @3.5 GHz, DDR4 1066 MHz 4 GB, OS-Windows® 10 x64, Performance measurements based on CrystalDiskMark 5.2.1.

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

Weighing in at just 51 grams, the Samsung T5 is smaller than the average business card and only 10.5 mm thick.

Now with Trim Support

Previous versions of the Samsung Portable SSD (T1 and T3) did not support TRIM. The new T5 does, providing you are connected to a host with UASP support and the drive is formatted with the NTFS file system.

Note, Trim is not supported if your T5 is formatted with the native exFAT file system that provides compatibility with Android and other devices. TRIM will increase performance over time, particularly after heavy use, so it's recommended you take advantage of this feature if you can. Thanks to Chris Ramseyer, Storage Editor at tomshardware.com for pointing this out in his review.

Solid Inside and Out

With no internal moving parts and a sturdy metal body, the T5 can handle 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.

Manage your drive with Samsung's T5 software

The T5 comes embedded with new intuitive software for PCs and Macs* to easily set the security password (or disable it) and get the latest firmware updates. You can also download the mobile app for Android smartphones and tablets.**

* Software requires Windows 7, MacOS 10.9 (Mavericks), or later, Android 4.4 (KitKat), or higher. Older versions of the Windows, Mac and Android operating systems may not be supported.
** Firmware update requires PC or Mac connection. Android app available on Google Play.

Easy Connectivity with most Computers and Devices

Connect the T5 to an extensive range of devices from PCs, Macs, smartphones, TV's 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.**

* Compatibility with host devices may vary. Some operating systems may require T5 reformatting. Please find the compatible devices list on www.samsung.com/support.
** ** T5 is compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0.
