Hands On With Samsung’s T3 Portable SSD


Portable storage has taken many faces throughout history from 5.25″ floppies to portable hard drives. Although if these storage mediums are dropped or exposed to extreme temperatures, critical data that’s stored on them can easily be lost. Samsung’s T3 is their latest portable SSD which is faster than a portable hard drive and is better at protecting data.

Samsung completely redesigned the case for T3 Portable SSD, ensuring that it can withstand a fall from 2 meters (~ 6.5ft), or up to 1500g of force. With durability locked down, Samsung focused on performance by adding a USB 3.1 Type-C interface that can achieve sequential read/write speeds of 450MBps. To take advantage of fast read/write speeds, T3 Portable SSD is offered in capacities of 250GB, 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB. Lastly, if T3 Portable SSD is left in a car on an extremely hot or cold day, its Thermal Guard will keep data on the drive protected.

Samsung T3 Portable SSD will be available February 2016, but price points are not yet available.
