Samsung T3 SSD: Fast, Portable Storage Review

Posted on 2016-02-22 16:11:36 by Thomas De Maesschalck

Samsung leveraged its extensive NAND flash and storage IP and took aim at the high-performance portable storage market last year when it launched its impressive Portable SSD T1 external drive. There are countless portable flash drives and a multitude of external storage enclosures on the market that can house any standard 2.5” SSD. However, the Samsung Portable SSD T1 was something a little bit different. The T1 was somewhat of a "tweener" product that was significantly lighter and more compact than a typical external back-up drive, while offering performance closer to an internally-connected SSD. At CES 2016, Samsung announced a new generation of portable SSDs, dubbed the T3. Whereas the original topped out at 1TB, the T3 doubles the maximum storage capacity to 2 Terabytes. The T3 also has a modernized enclosure with metal and rubberized accents, and the new drives are now outfitted with faster USB 3.1 Type-C connections.
