Product Comparison: Samsung T5 vs Samsung T3 Portable
- The transfer speed is also faster than I expected. I will by upgrading to 1TB (or higher) strictly for video soon.
- While I'm not seeing the quoted average "up to" speeds of 500+ MB/s, they are still impressive.
- I really love this portable speed demon. It's built very well and is the perfect size for putting in your pocket or laptop bag.
- The transfer speeds between the internal SSD and the T5 are just quick.
- Extremely slow on USB 3.0. Writing a 20GB file only does so at 24MB per second.
- Rugged metal case means I don't have to worry about dropping it.
- It is encrypted which is another very valuable feature. It is a great failsafe!
- The samsung software for Mac, providing password encryption and other features, does NOT work with Mac Sierra or Mojave OS.
- I should also mention, it has a password function to allow the user to put in a password. The is a nice feature.
- Adding a slot that would ingest SD cards dynamically like the Gnar box would be a cool feature. Get the biggest size you will use it.
