Samsung Electronics on Friday launched the Samsung Portable SSD T5 in India. The solid state drive uses the company’s latest 64-layer V-NAND technology that enables it to deliver industry-leading transfer speeds of up to 540MBps with encrypted data security. The SSD is already available to buy in the country via major retail outlets.
The Samsung PSSD T5 is already available in two distinct metal finishes – Deep Black (1TB and 2TB models) and Alluring Blue (250GB and 500GB models) for Rs. 13,500 (250GB), Rs. 21,000 (500GB), Rs. 40,000 (1TB), and Rs. 80,000 (2TB).
“At Samsung, we work towards delivering meaningful innovations and the Portable SSD T5 continues our legacy of leadership and innovation. We are confident that the T5 will exceed consumers’ expectations for external storage by offering 4.9 times faster speeds than external HDD products and a solid metal design that is lightweight and conveniently pocket-sized. T5 is surely a stunning proposition for Power Users like Media Professionals, Technology Enthusiasts, Content Creators and Business Professionals,” Sukesh Jain, Vice President, IT & Mobile Enterprise Business, Samsung India, said in a statement.
The new Samsung PSSD T5 is claimed to be designed especially for content creators, business and IT professionals as well as mainstream consumers to give instant and easy access to data. Samsung also says the T5 is smaller than an average business card (at 74×57.3×10.5mm) and weighs as little as 51 grams, fitting in the palm of your hand.
The T5 can withstand accidental drops of up to two meters (6.6 feet) because it has no moving parts and has a shock-resistant internal frame. It features optional 256-bit AES encryption, and has a USB Type-C port alongside a USB Type-C to Type-A cable.
