Hi, in this video I reviewe the Samsung Portable SSD T3 and the predecessor T1 and both comparisons.
We will see what the speed test results and whether the small plates really are recommended.
Apart from internal SSDs from the EVO series Samsung also offers external SSD drives at.
Why they are called Portable SSD is the latest then clear when the parts held once in the hand.
Both the newer T3 as well as its predecessor, the T1 are tiny compared to regular external hard drives.
And yes, the T1 followed really directly T3.
Obviously, the Samsung product designers have made a small Zählpraktikum at Microsoft.
But back to the review.
The Samsung T3 has an extremely solid, as the majority of the case of a single Aluminum piece is.
The black end is made of a rubberized plastic, which is also in soft-touch place or similar names.
It is available in 250 and 500 GB, as well as in 1 and 2 TB.
Previous there were only up to a capacity of 1 TB.
The robust processing falls especially compared with the entirely of plastic existing T1 on.
This feels more bit rickety and are also felt by the pressure.
In return, however, the T3 is also slightly larger than its predecessor.
Another difference is also found in the port.
While the T1 had a micro-USB 3.
0 port, the new T3 has a type-C USB 3.
In the speed test both plates could convince: The T3 managed 391 MB / s write and 428 Read MB / s.
The T1 was in the test under the same conditions to 393 MB / s write and also 428 MB / s read.
As a small load test, I also have several gigabytes in the form of 1MB files back and copied ago.
Here both disks broke at about 140 MB / s write and read 161 MB / s.
This is quite normal for small files and quite solid in both cases.
Since the fluctuations are really very small here is to assume that in both Housings slumbers the same hard drive.
Of course, it should be noted here that the data rates in practice on many factors may depend.
The tested here speed is really only gets when one's USB port and the internal hard drive also join the speeds.
In the small but fine detail the included cable is striking.
This can of course replace free, but in the T1 was a very short and barely flexible cable included.
While that was criticized by many, I found it very convenient as well as accidental Pull was almost impossible.
When a longer cable T3 is that with a small Velcro can bind compact.
Although the cable is still very short, but compared to the T1 significantly longer but it is also a normal cable.
I mentioned at the beginning that the T3 is generally slightly larger.
Moreover, since large sections of the housing are made of aluminum, thus follows a higher Mass.
And in fact, the T3 with 50 grams more than twice as heavy as the T1 with 23 grams.
In comparison, the plastic housing is light as a feather.
A small tip for those external SSD to work but not necessarily for need on the go: Normal internal SSDs can also be used well as external drives.
These come standard with a SATA port.
A USB 3.
0 to SATA converter can be all like a normal external hard drive use.
However, since the whole is very bulky, the whole as I said not really on the go to recommend.
Since the price difference between internal and external SSDs currently also rather small fails, I would still recommend in most applications to the Samsung T3.
She is super built tough and works for a long time very reliable.
The T1 is somewhat less robust, but smaller and significantly lighter – but it certainly somewhat fragile.
The read and write speeds were nearly identical in both.
So we already come to the end of the review.
Do you use external SSDs? you look into how collected her some experience, you can even in the comments write! If you liked the video, you can also like to give a thumbs up and subscribe to the channel.
See you next time, until then! If you want to see how their much larger amounts of data conveniently and fail-safe you can store them in a so-called RAID drive, click on the video.
