The Samsung T5 250GB Portable Solid State Drive is a great budget-friendly, lighting-fast external storage drive for a laptop, desktop, or mobile device. Small, rugged, easy to carry, and compatible with a variety of devices, it’s the perfect drive for just about any application or use.
Fast Transfer Speeds
The T5 250GB SSD uses Samsung’s MGX controller and 3-bit 3D V-NANA MLC flash technology to deliver read speeds of up to 540 MB/s and write speeds up to 515 MB/s. Transferring to a computer is not slowed down at all thanks to the USB 3.1 technology, and Samsung includes a USB-C to USB-C cable for maximum speed, as well as USB-C to USB-A cables for use with older devices.
Design & Size
The T5 is shockingly small, weighing in at only 1.8 ounces and only .4” thick. Its top-to-bottom metal design and rounded unibody frame fits just as easily in the palm of a hand as in accessory pockets of a laptop or camera bag.
Thanks to the fact that it utilizes flash memory with no moving parts, and is housed in a sturdy metal body, the T5 can sustain drops up to 6.6’ (2m).
The Samsung T5 250GB SSD also incorporates an optional password protection feature, which provides AES 256-bit hardware encryption to keep data private and secure if the drive is ever lost or stolen.
