  • 1Description

The blue Samsung T5 Portable Solid-State Drive provides 250GB of storage capacity for notebooks, desktops, and mobile devices sporting a typical USB interface or a reversible USB Type-C port. The T5 portable SSD utilizes a Samsung MGX controller and 3-bit 3D V-NAND MLC flash technology to deliver fast read speeds of up to 540 MB/s and write speeds up to 515 MB/s. To keep up with this level of performance, USB 3.1 technology is on board and supports transfer speeds of up to 10 Gb/s. For keeping your data safe, the T5 is armed with an AES 256-bit hardware encryption engine, which helps prevent unauthorized access. Aside from protections, Samsung includes one USB Type-A to USB Type-C cable and one USB Type-C to USB Type-C cable, so you can use the T5 portable drive with your current and future gear.

Fast Transfer Speeds
With Samsung V-NAND flash memory and USB 3.1 technology, the T5 provides transfer speeds of up to 540 MB/s, which is up to 4.9 times faster than external HDDs. Transfers and backups of large-sized data including 4K videos and high-resolution photos will be quicker and faster.
Design
The T5's top-to-bottom metal design and rounded unibody framework allow it to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand. This T5 comes in an aluminum blue finish.
Compact and Light
The T5 weighs 1.8 ounces (51g) with a thickness of 0.4" (10.2mm).
Shock Protection
The T5 has no moving parts and a sturdy metal body, so it can handle drops of up to 6.6' (2m).
Security
The optional password protection with AES 256-bit hardware encryption keeps your personal and private data secure.
Management
Manage your data easily with an intuitive software program for Windows and Macs systems to set up a password and download the latest firmware updates. A mobile app for Android smartphones and tablets is also available via download.
Connectivity
The included USB Type-C to Type-C cable and USB Type-C to Type-A cable provide seamless connectivity without the hassle of purchasing additional adapters.

    Samsung MU-PA250B/AM reviews

    250GB T5 Portable Solid-State Drive (Blue) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insanely Fast. Works with everything I have I have partioned out the drive so some partions work with my mac for TimeMachine and the other works as a normal drive for mac and PC for transferring files. AND THE SPEED!!! I transferred 44.45GB of movies onto my computer in 1 minute and 20 seconds! And it wrote them onto the drive in 1 minute and 38 seconds.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not supported!?! The good: Very small and travel friendly allowing me to lower the weight of my luggage The Bad: Expensive and still not as fast as Thunderbolt. The Ugly: Will not connect to my brand new smart TV LG C7 55" 4K UHD HDR OLED webOS 3.5 Smart TV (OLED55C7P). Unlike all other drives i have my video footage will not play from this drive even though i have disabled password protection. Which defeats one of the main purpose of getting both this drive and this TV so i could view my MP4 4k video files direct from this travel size drive. I have submitted a ticket to see if there is a work-around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Portable Storage for my large Construction drawings Large blueprints have always been a pain in my industry - not anymore! With 2TB of storage, I am not even worried this will run out of space and it's durable too - which is what I need. Now, if they can come up with a build-in external keychain loop so I can hook it to my briefcase and not lose it it would be PERFECT!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Storage Unit Small, compact and powerful. It has great capabilities for uploading information through fast USB.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brings new life to my iMac - Thank you! I use two of these drives to bring new life to my iMac. Using the 3.1 USB interface, I use these devices in a RAID 0 configuration to get 730 MB/s Writes and 620 MB/s reads. One device alone will do 420 MB/s reads and writes. I have my OS on it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast but expensive. The unit is very small and straightforward to use with my MacBook Pro (had to reformat it using the Mac OS Disk Utility). �If it were a little less expensive or a 500 GB drive I would consider it a 5 star for sure. �Software was easy but don't forget you password! �It nearly did me in a few weeks later. �Comes with 2 cables that makes it useful for the new and old USB standard.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good drive in most cases... I bought this to replace an older 256 G drive that could not hold any more photos. It works very well, but in some situations it will not be recognized by scanners. This is a function of the scanner design and the 3.1 USB connection. If you are saving research material, take along a USB that you know works, then transfer those files to the T5 later.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 435MB/s write, 514MB/s read Amazing little drive. I am using it with a late 2016 MacBook Pro and Yamaha TF1 digital mixer. Great for sneaker networking. Tested with Blackmagic Disk Speed Test app.
