Samsung Electronics recently unveiled the Samsung Portable SSD T1, a stylish, external portable solid state drive (SSD) that represents a new standard of storage for today’s digital life. Designed for speed and security without sacrificing style, the Portable SSD T1 is ideal for business travelers, creative professionals and content creators with a need for secure local storage they can take on-the-go and use to quickly transfer large amounts of data.
Built with the same award-winning technology as Samsung’s internal SSDs, the Portable SSD T1 saves users precious time with extremely fast read/write speeds, enabling users to plug in and quickly grab their work to present to prospective clients or partners. In fact, the drive has sequential read/write speeds of up to 450 megabytes per second (MB/s) with a USB 3.0 super speed interface and random read/write speeds of up to 8,000 inputs/outputs per second (IOPS) and 21,000 IOPS respectively. The write speed is responsive and fast like an internal SSD and up to 100 times faster than an external hard disk drive (HDD). Depending on the file size, the Portable SSD T1 has a data transfer speed four times faster than an external HDD. It takes only eight seconds to transfer a 3GB movie file and 27 seconds for a 10GB movie file compared to an external HDD which takes 26 seconds and 85 seconds, respectively.
With its intuitive user interface, the Samsung Portable SSD T1 is easy to set up and protect, so professionals can be assured that their original work will not fall into the wrong hands or get lost due to design, durability or reliability concerns. With just one user-set password, the drive is safe from unwanted access thanks to AES 256-bit hardware encryption. Unlike an external HDD, the Portable SSD T1 has no moving parts, so it can withstand bumps and drops and users do not need to worry about the wear and tear on moving parts that can result in lost or corrupted data. It is shock resistant up to 1500G/0.5ms and features Dynamic Thermal Guard, which will activate in extreme temperature conditions to protect the drive and any stored data – so users can rest easy knowing the drive can withstand even the toughest elements.
The Portable SSD T1 has a slim and compact design that makes it easy to take anywhere. Smaller than an average business card and weighing about 1 ounce, it features premium aesthetics such as black chrome metal coating and laser patterning, making it the sleek, fashionable choice for sophisticated and stylish users.
