SAMSUNG T5 Portable SSD 1TB  External Solid State Drive Review #1

Reviewed in the United States on December 26, 2017

I was actually surprised at how small and light the drive was when I got it. I’m using it on a 2017 13″ MacBook Pro and have it formatted with APFS (Encrypted).

While I’m not seeing the quoted average “up to” speeds of 500+ MB/s, they are still impressive (see screenshot). I use this drive for my video editing (scratch disk and saving). It works great for Final Cut Pro and ScreenFlow Pro.

SAMSUNG T5 Portable SSD 1TB  External Solid State Drive Review #2

I slapped this SAMSUNG T5 Portable SSD 1TB on my PS4 and left it there. Load times are vastly improved. Loading screens really bothered me. No more!!! I’m the first one in-game on Fortnite. Grand Theft Auto loads too quickly for me to get a drink from the kitchen. I’m absolutely amazed by the total 180° in load times. The only thing I regret is debating for years whether or not to get one!

6-month update. Yeah, I appreciated this SAMSUNG T5 Portable SSD 1TB. Good buy. Downloads are faster. Loading screens are quicker. In-game runs smoother.  SAMSUNG T5 Portable SSD 1TB

1 Year update.

My cousin doesn’t have the capacity to understand the benefits of an SSD. He must “one-up” everyone. Example: I buy a 50” television, he must go buy a 51” for a cheaper price the next day.

I told this guy about the SSD. He goes and buys a 4 TB HDD for 50 bucks. The problems he has been having are astronomical. The games crash. The load times are wack. The corrupted data. But… the ”mines bigger and way better than yours” is still valid to him. Pffft! okay buddy, you keep believing that.

I’ve read online that World War Z and NBA2K have obnoxious load times. I don’t see it? What are they talking about?

I have the little-brother to this SAMSUNG T5 Portable SSD 1TB drive, a 500GB T3, and have been very happy with it over the last 2 years but the size is getting a little restrictive. This one is even faster and has twice space.

Physically the drive is very compact – a little shorter and slightly wider than a credit card and about 1/4″ thick and very light. The exterior is an unassuming flat black aluminum and one end has a USB-C port and a small blue activity light.

what is Included

It comes pre-formatted in exFAT which works on both Windows and Mac. The box also includes a fairly stiff USB-C to USB-C cable and a USB-C to USB-A cable, each about 12″ long. The drive includes a software password tool if you want to password-protect the drive contents (I didn’t install this) for Mac, Windows, and Android.  SAMSUNG T5 Portable SSD 1TB

Other than the size and durability (no moving parts), the main benefit of these drives is speed. They are incredibly fast owing to the USB 3.1 interface. I did a quick, informal test and 25Gb of video transferred in under a minute from my Mac Book Pro (USB-C); reading it back took about the same time. This is fast enough to use as regular storage and a huge time saver if you need to move large files between computers.

The drive does get a tad warm underuse and the cable is stiff enough to prevent the lightweight drive from laying flat on a desk during use, but these are minor quibbles.
