Hopefully Samsung changes its naming schemes before we hit T1000 but for now, as many people know a T5 is stronger than a T3. If you missed Al's review, you should take a peek before heading to The Tech Report to benefit from his wisdom. With portable drives, or most drives for that matter, the metric that we care the most about is real world usage which is what Robobench is intended for. In order to properly test this USB 3.1 Gen 2 drive, TR picked up an addin card with the most common Gen 2 chip, the ASMedia ASM1142 controller and tested the transfer speeds for both compressible and non-compressible data. Drop by for a look at how the Samsung T5 performed.
"Samsung has refreshed its portable SSD lineup with 64-layer V-NAND and an aluminum unibody. We take the new T5 external for a spin to see if it lives up to the legacy of the T1 and T3."
