    This SSD was well worth it I've gotten one for my Xbox One X and I'm getting one for my PlayStation 4 Pro. I don't know about anyone else but not only did I get better load times. But I am getting better graphics and performance especially with textures as well as some other stuff. Now I'm not saying it's all next gen enhanced but it is definitely different. I noticed this from playing cyberpunk 2077 on internal HHD and switched to playing it on SSD. I did the same thing with Assassin's Creed Valhalla. Definitely seems to unlock a little extra console potential.. when it comes to games get you a good SSD it changes everything. I honestly don't see the need to even get the new generation consoles right now with an SSD an late last gen consoles..

    So far it’s perfect, I’m using it with my Mac to store end edit video files, so that the Mac is not full right away. I even tried a few 4K videos and haven’t noticed any performance issues.

    I’m using this for my Xbox One X and find that it significantly improves load times and texture pop-in on Forza Horiza 4 and Call of Duty Cold War. Word of advice: Be cautious when using the back USB port. I found that the back ventilation warms up the USB port. I’ve moved it to the front USB and problem solved. SSD can warm up so standing it up would be ideal for long gaming.

    Bought this for PS5 until Sony releases their own internal SSD expansion. Works perfectly to store PS4 games. Super quick to load and I just hide it behind my PS5.

    I was looking for some External SSD Hard Drives and found this one. I owned another one (blue but 500GB) and was very pleased with the size and weight! Feels like a feather! Also works good and for video editing it works great.

    Purchased for backups for a mac mini after looking at all the reviews on wire cutter. Made sure to format it for time machine with Mac OS extended (journaled) and GUID portion map scheme. It works great and is so much faster than my old drive. With my older model, was happy to see that the adapter cord for USB was included. Like the small LED light on it so I know when backups are occurring.

    Picked this lil monster up last night for an event, and loaded it with 500gb of videos. I video mixed with Serato Video DJ PRO for 5hrs straight without any issues! I use a 2017 MacBook Pro. I’ve used lacie and western digital external hds, both have overheated, and seized due to rigorous, nonstop hours of video performances using both thunderbolt and USB-C cables. I highly recommend this unit to all Video DJs 100%

    I use the Samsung - T5 1TB External USB Type C Portable Solid State Drive with my Apple Macbook Pro store and work with my photos in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Once I export the images to this drive, and the drive is 90% full, I keep the drive as a backup drive. The fast transfer of my large and numerous files is much appreciated. With the high speed and reliability of the Solid State Drives, and the prices dropping, this is now the preferred storage of my professional photos.

    Samsung's product designs are always classy and sleek. I was debating whether or not to get this in Red or Rose Gold because both colors "pops." It is amazing to know that this product can hold up to 1TB and it is small and can fit in your pocket. Transferring, opening, downloading, saving files is a breeze and speeds are fast. Would be nice if it came in a small pouch/dust bag to hold the SSD and cord.

    Capacity

    Way better than the T7 in my opinion. Fast reliable and is on the BMPCC 4K/6k approved memory list. The storage capacity on Samsung T5 come in several sizes the 1T is more than enough for recording raw files in full 4K plus more. Side note* They had some left on 44th 5th Ave. I went and every one downstairs gave me excuses about how it’s no longer there, no one can really look for it right now, take the T7. Etc. I came specifically for the T5 which showed in stock on website which I needed last minute for a film gig. Really needed the T5 love it that much. As I was heading upstairs to leave I called Adorama to check stock and was going to be late now to go further downtown to get the T5. Good news, Melissa(braids/ glasses) the young lady upstairs in Best Buy noticed I was annoyed and asked how she could help? Long story short she found the T5 for me in 2 mins or less. Thanks Melissa !!! Saved me a trip/ time and the shoot was great.

    A Plus for Laptop with Less Than 250 GB.

    Pros mentioned:
    Capacity

    Today's new thin laptops not in the $800+ range highly likely have less than 250 GB, especially those with detachable keyboard or 10" tablet at 64GB max. This SSD is a real + as an external storage that you can carry in your pocket or in your bag by just throw it inside (of course with a sandwich bag at least) ; you need not to constantly being careful with it. It is sturdy with no moveable part inside that you have to worry about damaging it internally that can't be seen. It hook up with either device with 2.0 or 3.0. USB port. I am not a racer, so I don't really care about timing the speed with either 2.0 or 3.0; however, mentally I do notice there is a difference in speed just as you are driving a car with a V8 or V6. In whole, it is a plus if your device has less than 250GB, especially those with only 64 GB while higher models with higher GB would coat as much as $500 difference.

    I got this to use as external storage for the PS5. Yes you cannot save PS5 games to it but you can save PS4 games to it and save your storage in the PS5 for PS5 games. The load times aren’t as good as being saved on the PS5 internal SSD but it is loads faster than what the PS4 was. The 1TB after formatting comes to mid to low 9000 GBs. If there was any issue, which I don’t take seriously, is that you can only save games to the EXSSD, no pictures, videos or save files. You have over 9000 GBs of raw storage in a small sleek EXSSD that sits right behind my console where no one will ever see it. I would recommend this to anyone who plans on using backwards compatibility on the PS5 and you are worried about storage on your internal PS5 SSD. It was extremely easy to set up, took it out of the package, plugged it into the back of the console, formatted the SSD and it was all over in under 5 minutes.

    Samsung SSD T5 1TB

    |
    Posted .

    The drive does get very warm during large downloads. Not hot but warm. The down load speed also seemed to go slower as the drive heated up. The drive is very light. The cable is almost heavier than the SSD. Did a test with a Toshiba 2 TB USB 3 disk drive using USB 3 ports on my computer. Transferred 130 GB from a test transfer folder on my computer SSD. it took about 32 minutes. The Samsung connected via USB C SSD took 11 minutes to transfer the same files from the same folder. So it is almost 3 times faster. Transferred the same file from the disk drives back to my computer. The Toshiba took 92 minutes. The Samsung SSD took 15 minutes. Paid about $250 at best buy for the drive.

    Im super happy with the preformance boost from this on my xbox one x. Destiny 2 loads atleast 40 percent faster now. Keep in mind for matchmaking with others, youll typically still be waiting for THEIR systems to load. But, if you play alone, or 90 percent of the time your loaded into the world atleast a minute before others. Much thanks to ELISHA, for going and getting keys to unlock cabinet so i could purchase. BEST buy needs more help in my moms opinion, she got tired of waiting for one of the two people working in computers to free up and went out to the car. But Elisha noticed, and lended a hand, much grateful.

    Very fast. Great for running large Parallels or VMware Virtual machines instead of running off your internal drive. Also good to make cloned drives and run them on other machines. Great product with 2020 iPad Pro also. Very light high quality metal device. Includes two cables. The color blends in nice with the iPad space gray. Be sure to look at the 7T which offers a thumb print encryption model as well as double the read rate for newer computers that have newer USB version. The 5T is great for older computers that top out at 400 to 500/mbs. If you have an older computer, you may want to consider the 7T for future proofing but be aware that the extra 500/mbs (for a total of 1000/mbs) will go to waste until you get a newer computer. The price difference on the 1TB model is not that much more and worth considering.

    About as fast as a USB SSD can go

    |
    Posted .

    This drive is a great option if you don't have the scratch to go with an external NVME-type SSD. (If you don't know what that is, just look for something priced about 4x as much as this one with about 5x the speed via Thunderbolt instead of USB.) The T5 is reasonably priced for the performance level. Just be sure to use the provided cable because some USB-C charging cables don't do fast data transfer (looking at you, Apple). And don't try and save a few bucks on the WD MyPassport SSD, it's only half as fast as this one.

    Speed

    If you’re considering buying the Samsung T5 please consider this: you will have access to a level of speed and performance that could have only been achieved by an expensive raid a couple of years ago.... on top of that you now have the reliability of an SSD on your side, something a raid could never guarantee. If you shoot 4K video and care about your time the T5 is a must have tool. It has become quickly one of my favorite investments.

    I didn't realize the power SSD has when it comes to gaming. The loading process is fast and seamless especially when playing ps4 games on the ps5. Next gen games take A LOT of memory (ps4 games too) so having an extra 1TB is especially helpful to ensure internal memory is not fully maxed out. Been wanting to purchase one of these for two years but waited until it got cheaper.

    This is an amazingly small and fast hard drive. Be aware if you encrypt the drive with the included samsung software you will need to install that software on whatever device you want to decrypt it with. I am using it as an external drive to store media files and it has worked great. I have used it with PC's running windows. I have not tried to connect to my phone.
