We take a look at portable SSDs prior to, such as the Corsair Flash Voyager GTX, and the Samsung T1 SSD brings nothing brand new to the offering – other than Samsung‘s classy style, and also the company really is at the top of this game with that. The Samsung T1 SSD has been designed to be a great deal larger than it needs to be to really house the components inside. But what you get is a pleasant looking thing that looks fantastic and probably more to the point is just big enough never to effortlessly get lost, yet is easily pocketable, and oddly people are drawn to it and wish to hold it. So good job there, Samsung. The interface is USB 3, and you could expect read and write speeds as high as 450MB/s. On our test rig we recorded just under 430MB/s, but mileage varies according the device it’s linked to.
