Introducing the Samsung Portable SSD T1.

We've taken the power and performance of an internal SSD, added cutting edge security and put it in a compact, stylish case. The T1 is the perfect portable portfolio for your life. It's a new way to have your personal and professional data with you all the time.

Hi-speed Performance

Superfast sequential readwrite speeds of up to 450 MB/s enabled with TurboWrite Technology.

Don't wait for your data. Compared to traditional spinning platter external HDDs, the T1's portable SSD is up to 3 - 4 times faster. This means you'll save time when moving or retrieving files like music, movies, documents and photos.

Cutting edge security

AES 256 bit encryption for cutting edge data security

For many people their data is their life -- whether it's personal or professional. That's why we've made sure the T1 is embedded with the latest in advanced security using an AES 256 bit encryption algorithm to secure valuable data. No installation is required and all your data can be accessed with one password.

Sleek, stylish design

Bring style into your digital life

Let your portable SSD be an expression of your tech-savvy style. The T1's sleek premium design is accentuated by its slim compact shape, combining style and portability. Plus, it features laser patterning and black chrome metalized finishing.

Internal SSD-level performance

A new level of portable performance

Now you can get the responsiveness of an internal SSD in a compact portable package. External HDDs can't compare with the T1's random read and write speeds which provide off-the-charts performance when accessing your files.

Compact & convenient

Take your data wherever you go

You deserve immediate access to your data any time you want it. Now, you can keep your data with you at all times thanks to the T1's compact, portable design. At 2.8x2.0x.4, just slide it into your pocket, wallet or bag and you're good to go. Data storage has never been so portable.

Shock & vibration resistant

Shock, vibration & and temperature resistance for peace of mind on the go

Because it utilizes solid state technology, the sturdy T1 has no moving parts, making it more resistant to shock and vibration. It also features Dynamic Thermal Guard which protects data in high temperatures and allows you to take your data safely with you wherever you go.

Pros: Extremely fast
Very small
Seems to be well built
Strong AES 256 encryption

Cons: Short USB cable
Sticker shock

Overall Review: In order to use the drive, you have to run the setup utility included on a small startup partition. You can name the drive and set a password for encryption or choose to not encrypt the drive.

The included USB cable is short, but seems to be pretty tough.

The drive itself is about the size of a credit card, but 5 or 6 cards deep.

It's almost as fast as my internal SSD and with the capacity seems great for backups or video use. The limiting factor on it's speed seems to be the USB 3.0 interface, but if you need a USB drive, this is one to have!

I had some solid performance over USB 2.0 as well, however if you don't have USB 3.0, this drive would be a waste of money in my opinion.

Enabling encryption can really hurt performance depending on usage, so if speed is a top concern leave the encryption off.

The drive also gets warm to the touch. I hope this won't affect longevity.

Wont connect to every computer 12/12/2016 5:31:08 AM

Pros: If its detected awesome.

Cons: Most computers will not detect this drive. And if tehy do sometimes they detect it temporarily. Ranges from windows 7 to windows 10... all with problems. I literally have 1 computer that will connect with the wire that game with it... and another computer that will only connect with a seperately purchased usb cable. Its quite aweful. Buy a different one.. not this one. May have lost faith in samsung products in general because of this thing.

Fast but flawed 6/22/2016 10:17:01 AM

Pros: Very fast transfer speeds on my SSD-equipped home PC. File backups now complete in a fraction of the time they did on mechanical hard drives.

The tiny, slim form factor make it easy to carry this around in my laptop bag.

Cons: The drive includes unnecessary built-in Samsung software that requires you to activate the drive before use. Once activated on my Windows computer at home, it cannot be written to on my Mac at work without formatting it.

The included Samsung USB cable was faulty, so initially I was unable to use this with USB 3.0 ports. The drive would disconnect itself at random. Replacing the cable with a StarTech brand cable fixed the problem.

DONT BUY IT 5/13/2016 5:25:00 PM

Pros: Cant give pros,

Cons: You fill it with files, and then suddenly after a message will tell you the hard needs to be formatted before you can use it. Surprise, You lost all the files in it.

Overall Review: I was fan of Samsung products, but not after this product.
Update: I send it to Samsung for fix, complete with the original box but they returned it to me just the SSD and the cable, no box, no manual.

Bought 2 of these - 1 dead within 7 months 4/15/2016 4:40:05 AM

Pros: Small, very fast. One of them has been great...but now I'm scared.

Cons: Bought two of these. One I have used extensively over the last 7 months. The other was purchased for my daughter and she never used it. I recently started using the second one in the last month. After one month's use, it will no longer power up. Will be experiencing the warranty process.

Overall Review: Replacement sent wasn't initialized/formatted. After performing that - would not show up in explorer. Sending back again. Replacements sent out are not tested.

Pros: Puny
Light as a feather (and i'm only exaggerating buy an oz here!)
SSD Fast Transfer rates (both read and write)
Micro profile so it's out of the way

Very good speed! 1/7/2016 7:59:12 PM

Pros: Portable :)
Very fast

Cons: I couldn't get more than 300MB/s, mostly around 100-200MB/s while transfer files. 300MB/s at max.
A little pricey

Overall Review: Recommend if you need to transfer a lot of data with extreme speed , otherwise just get a fast portable HDD with more capacity
