Samsung Portable SSD T5 Review


The Samsung’s newly released T5 is a compact and lightweight portable SSD! It is about the size of a stack of credit cards. Don’t be fooled by its small size, its capacity ranges from 250GB to 2TB. The thing I like about flash storages is that they are hardy enough to survive a lot more knocks than regular spinning hard disk drives. Not only that, flash storages have great throughput too.
