- Great overall performance
- Durable, modern and slim design
- Easy-to-use software
- No increase in maximum capacity
Conclusion The Samsung T5 is a welcomed addition to company’s mobile storage portfolio, as it enters the always-growing and highly sought-after portable SSD market. Compact and lightweight, the T5 improved on its predecessor in every way with the exception of a higher capacity point; it will certainly suit the needs of any on-the-go professionals or media enthusiasts that work with large volumes of data. Although Samsung indicated similar performance for all models in the T5 family, consistency between the lower and higher capacities points was a bit uneven. For example, the 2TB model had an impressive performance across the board, while the 500GB model ran about slower in writes. Lower capacities failed to achieve Samsung’s quoted performance numbers as well. That being said, they are still two of the fastest and most portable SSDs out there. The improved modern design of the T5 is also very appealing. Having such a compact, high-performing, and high-capacity storage solution that easily fits into a small pocket is extremely useful. Coupling all of this with the optional AES 256-bit hardware encryption, simple password protection functionality, and its ability to seamlessly work with Android devices (which is a vital feature for many professionals on the go) makes this a fantastic release by Samsung.
