Samsung Portable SSD T1 250GB Review

Post by Apoptosis » Tue Jan 20, 2015 8:59 am

Sexy and luxurious are two adjectives you don't often see when one is talking about portable storage drives. Samsung is no stranger to beautiful designs and the South Korean electronics giant has an actual global design team that is tasked with the job of bringing good looking products to market. Someone at Samsung wanted to come out with a tiny yet stylish, external portable SSD that uses the USB 3.0 interface to become the fastest drive on the market. The result of this was the Samsung Portable SSD T1, which is hands down the exciting USB 3.0 external storage drive that we have seen since the adaptation of SuperSpeed USB 3.0. Could the decreasing profit in Samsung's smartphone division mean that Samsung is reinvigorated and looking to bring out innovative new premium class products in other areas? To be honest we don't care what has been stifling innovation when it comes to portable USB 3.0 storage drives as long as companies like Samsung are now bringing our products that are going to shake up the market place.

Yup, they overnighted me one for Saturday as there was no way I could review the one they accidentally sent you.

Nice review. Two questions:
  1. Do you know if the AES 256-bit encryption is hardware or software based?
  2. Did you run any performance tests with encryption turned on?
Thanks!
