Samsung Portable SSD T1 ( 250GB)

 

What's more, unlike other compact storage devices, the T1 supports data encryption. It also works with both Windows and Mac computers, after a brief setup process.

The Samsung Portable SSD T1 is tiny yet super-fast. The drive has up to 1TB of storage space, supports data encryption and works with both Mac and Windows.

The drive is expensive and has only a three-year warranty.

Other than its cost, the Samsung Portable SSD T1 is what any portable drive should be.

DONT BUY IT

 

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.

Cant give pros,

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.

Bought 2 of these - 1 dead within 7 months

 

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

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

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...

Very good speed!

 

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

Portable :) Very fast

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