Samsung launched a new series of portable, external solid-state drives (SSDs) called the Samsung T5 EVO, combining speed and volume into a compact, sleek, yet durable package.

The Samsung T5 EVO uses USB 3.2 Gen 1 (5Gbps), with sequential read and write speeds of up to 480MB/s. It’s fast in every way, with storage speeds 3.8x faster than conventional external HDDs.

Despite its sleek appearance, the T5 EVO is drop-resistant up to 2 metresand can reliably operate in temperatures between 0 °C and 60°C. It’s also highly compact (40 x 95 x 17mm) and light, at 102g, almost half the weight of a conventional Android smartphone.

Additional features include Samsung’s proprietary Dynamic Thermal Guard technology to avoid overheating, support for hardware data encryption (AES 256-bit), and matching software (Samsung Magician Software).
