Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a global leader in advanced semiconductor technology, has launched the T5 EVO, a portable and lightweight solid-state drive (SSD) that reaches up to 8 terabytes (TB) of capacity, the largest storage available in portable SSDs on the market. This innovative SSD solution not only stands out for its capacity, but also for offering ultra-fast speeds in a compact and durable design.
Thanks to USB 3.2 Gen 1 technology, the T5 EVO transfers data up to 3.8 times faster than external hard drives, with sequential read and write speeds of up to 460 megabytes per second (MB/s). This facilitates the transfer of large files and significantly improves performance compared to conventional solutions.
Enhanced Portability and Ergonomic Design
The T5 EVO’s ergonomic design focuses on “Compact and Lightweight Ergonomics,” moving away from the size of a business card while maintaining a compact body. Measuring 95 mm wide, 40 mm long, and 17 mm thick, the T5 EVO is small enough to hold in one hand. The weight of 102 grams contributes to its portability without sacrificing capacity.
The unit features a black body and a titanium gray ring that gives it a premium and elegant look. Its metal ring allows it to be easily attached to bags or luggage, and its metal body and rubber-coated surface provide protection against external impacts, including drops of up to two meters.
With storage capacities of up to 8 TB, the T5 EVO is ideal for storing large amounts of data, such as large files, high-resolution videos, photos, and games, meeting both work and recreational needs. For example, an 8 TB unit can hold over 2 million photos of 3.5 MB, 1.8 million 4 MB music files, or 3,500 2 GB videos.
Security is a priority thanks to Dynamic Thermal Guard technology, which protects against overheating, and 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) hardware data encryption, providing users with confidence and security in data storage.
The T5 EVO is compatible with various operating systems and host devices, such as macOS, Windows, smartphones/tablets, and game consoles. It also includes the Samsung Magician software, which provides advanced management features such as real-time unit status checking, genuine authentication checking, performance benchmarking, and firmware updates.
Available in capacities of 2TB, 4TB, and 8TB, the T5 EVO comes with a USB Type C-to-C cable and includes a limited three-year warranty.
Hangu Sohn, Vice President of the Memory Brand Product Biz team at Samsung Electronics, stated:
For consumers looking for alternatives to traditional hard disk drives (HDDs), the T5 EVO—which offers the highest capacity on the market along with speed and durability in such a compact design that fits in the palm of your hand—is a new and innovative external storage option. The T5 EVO is designed to meet the needs of a wide range of consumers with diverse lifestyles. Its capacity of up to 8 TB, high speeds, compact design, and data protection against external shocks are ideal for users who want to store and access data anytime, anywhere.
