Along with its capacity, the T5 EVO delivers ultra-fast speeds in a compact, durable design as a cutting-edge, versatile SSD solution.
“For consumers who are looking for substitutes for traditional hard disk drives (HDDs), the T5 EVO — offering the largest-available capacity along with speed and durability in a compact design that fits in the palm of your hand — is an innovative, new external storage option,” said Hangu Sohn, Vice President of the Memory Brand Product Biz Team at Samsung Electronics. “The T5 EVO is built to fulfill the needs of a wide range of consumers with diverse lifestyles. Its capacity of up to 8TB, fast speeds, compact design and data protection from external shocks are well-suited for users who want to store and access data anywhere, anytime.”
Based on USB 3.2 Gen 1, the T5 EVO transfers data up to 3.8 times faster than external HDDs and delivers maximum performance through sequential read and write speeds of up to 460 megabytes per second (MB/s), making it easier to transfer large files.
