Storage made new

The Samsung Portable SSD T5 elevates data transfer speeds to the next level and unleashes a new experience in external storage. With a compact and durable design and password protection, the T5 is truly easy to carry and stores data securely.

Fast transfer speeds

With Samsung V-NAND flash memory and a USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface, the T5 provides transfer speeds of up to 540 MB/s, that's up to 4.9x faster than external HDDs. Transfers and backups of large-sized data including 4K videos and high-resolution photos will be much quicker and faster.

Metal minimalism

The top to bottom metal design and rounded unibody fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. The T5 comes in two distinct aluminum finishes - an alluring blue for 250 GB and 500 GB models, and a deep black for 1 TB and 2 TB models.

Compact and light

Smaller than the average business card, weighing just 1.80oz, and only 0.41" thick. The compact, light and slim T5 is the perfect portable storage.

Solid inside and out

Do more. Worry less. The T5 has no moving parts and a sturdy metal body, so it can handle drops of up to 2 meters. The optional password protection with AES 256-bit hardware encryption keeps your personal and private data more secure*. It's all confidently backed by a 3-year limited warranty

Management software

Manage your data easily with new intuitive software for PCs and Macs* that makes it simple to set the password and get the latest firmware updates. You can also download the mobile app for Android smartphones and tablets.
