The Samsung Portable SSD T5 Rose Gold 500GB is an external SSD in a compact aluminum housing. With a transfer speed of 540MB / s, this Samsung disk is a small speed devil. You can transfer large 5GB files such as multiple RAW photos, 4K footage and game libraries in less than 10 seconds. Do you regularly download files? Thanks to the AES 256 encryption, your external drive is protected against viruses or hacking attacks. And only you have access to your data, via a password. With a weight comparable to that of your smartphone and a size as large as a stack of playing cards, you can easily take the disc with you on the road. And does it fall off the table by accident? Thanks to a fall resistance of up to 2 meters, this disc can take a beating. If your laptop, computer or console does not have a usb c, simply connect it via the included, trusted usb a cable.
