Samsung Portable SSD T5 Review

Performance Test & Conclusion

The Samsung Portable SSD T5’s Performance

The Samsung Portable SSD T5 managed 435 MB/s and 437 MB/s for sequential read and write respectively.

On my Microsoft Surface Pro 4, the Samsung Portable SSD T5 achieved sequential read and write speed of 435 MB/s and 437 MB/s respectively in CrystalDiskMark.

This blazing speed is because of the combination of Samsung’s 64-layer V-NAND flash memory and USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface which Samsung says is up to 4.9x faster than external hard disks.



The Samsung Portable SSD T5 is a great portable SSD for those looking for a small drive with great performance. It is perfect for people who deals with large files like artworks or virtual machine’s disks. So yeah, media designers and system admins, this portable SSD is the perfect choice.

The password protection with 256-bit AES hardware encryption keeps your data safe at rest. You can use the Samsung T5 with or without a password.

The Samsung T5 carries a standard three (3) year warranty. The local distributor also included a complimentary one (1) year data recovery service for the SSD.

The Samsung Portable SSD T5 is available in 250GB, 500GB, 1TB and 2TB options.
