What's all that speed good for in an external drive anyway? Picture this: you need to kick off a meeting in five minutes, but the huge PowerPoint presentation is going to take 10 minutes to copy over to your old and slow USB thumb drive or 2.5-inch HDD.
If you had a Samsung Portable SSD T5, well, that transfer could have occurred in mere seconds and you could have been out the door and in the meeting room with time to spare, thanks to the T5's ability to transfer a 4.8GB 4K UHD movie in 12 seconds, or 100 pictures (at 2.8MB each) in an amazing three seconds**.
One of the best features of using an SSD as external storage is the lack of moving parts. Hard drives are fragile, mechanical devices with sensitive motors, finely balanced platters and calibrated arms - none of which exist on an SSD. An SSD is just chips soldered on to a board and placed into a case. The Samsung Portable SSD T5 has no moving parts and a sturdy metal body, so it can handle most accidental drops of up to two meters.***
Knocks, bumps and drops are part of life in professional environments. Harsh conditions on remote sites, rough handling during checked or hand luggage and the hustle and bustle of every day commuting are of little concern with a hardy Samsung Portable SSD T5 compared to a fragile hard drive.
If you're a road warrior or just a regular commuter, every gram you can remove from your bag is literally, a weight off your shoulders. Not only is the T5 fast and robust, but it is tiny! Smaller than the average business card, weighing from just 51 grams and only 10.5 mm thick. Without a doubt, the Samsung Portable SSD T5 a lightweight option with up to 2TB of storage capacity.
Fast, sleek, solid, secure and ready – the Samsung Portable SSD T5 is a must have for anyone serious about external storage.
