First off, the Samsung Portable SSD T1 is really tiny. It is barely bigger than 2 flash drives placed side by side. The typical reaction it gets when someone is told that it is a 1TB drive is that, “There is a terabyte in that?” The next reaction to the T1’s laser patterning and black chrome metalized finish is that it looks really sleek and cool.

The Samsung Portable SSD T1 brings power and performance and the cutting edge security of an internal SSD in a stylish and compact case. Amazingly, the T1 is even tinier than a 2.5 inch internal solid-state drive. However, the most amazing thing about the Samsung Portable SSD T1 is its super fast read-write speed of up to 450 MB/s powered by Turbo Write Technology.

Compared to normal 1TB mechanical drives, the T1 is 3 – 4 times faster so you save time moving or retrieving files such as music, pictures, and videos. Transferring a 40 GB takes about a minute with the T1. The write speed of the T1 can easily rival those of internal SSD.

The Samsung Portable SSD T1 also comes with embedded AES 256 bit encryption ensures data security. Setting up is easy as all it takes is a few mouse clicks using Samsung’s software. The feature can also be temporarily disabled if you wish to share the data on the drive with someone else.

The Samsung Portable SSD T1 is compatible with devices running both USB 2.0 and 3.0 interfaces. If you need a truly portable and super quick 1TB drive, there aren’t many drives out there that can match the T1 on both fronts. However, be prepared to pay for the privilege of having both.
