Samsung’s New Portable SSD Packs 2TB Of Storage In Your Pocket


Blistering speeds and huge storage if you have the cash

Samsung has announced the successor of its first portable SSD at CES today, dubbed the SSD T3. The new model is only slightly larger and heavier than the previous model but is capable of blistering read/write speeds of up to 450 MB/S. The device uses Samsung’s vertical NAND (V-NAND) memory to accomplish that and comes in a variety of capacities that include 250GB, 500GB, 1TB and a whopping 2TB.

While SSD-based portable storage solutions are more expensive than traditional HDD-based ones, you’re getting a more reliable storage medium since there’s no moving parts involved in the drive to break. It’s also faster, shock resistant and comes in USB 3.1 and Type-C variations if you’re one of the few people already sporting USB Type-C complaint devices, you lucky devil you.


Obviously this won’t come cheap, not by a long shot – the 1TB version of Samsung’s first portable SSD drive, the T1, came in at a whopping $600 or Php 28.2K. You can expect the 2TB version of this baby to go even higher.
