Speed : Blazing Fast !
Size : Barely the size of a Visiting Card.
It comes with two Cables :
USB C to C (for connecting it to an Android device)
USB C to A (for connecting to a PC/Mac)
Both support USB 3.1
1. Highly compact
2. High amount of transfer speed (Only if you have USB 3.0 port on PC / Laptop)
3. 150mb+ transfer rate
4. TESTED: Copied 5 GB movie file in 18 seconds
Go for it guys...!!!
(03rd October 2019 17:00) Still Nothing
Stats -> Copying 30.8 GB Data (average file size of 500 MB)
1) Windows PC to T5 -> 196 secs
2) T5 to Windows PC -> 207 secs
3) T5 to Note 10 Plus -> 122 secs
4) Note 10 Plus to T5 -> 116 secs
5) Macbook Pro to T5 -> 61 secs
6) T5 to Macbook Pro -> 58 secs
1. Super light weight
3. Supports Type C to Type C and Type C to Full USB (Both cables in package)
1. Unstable connection using provided usbs, They do not fit in completely nor lock in
2. Speeds like 30-80 Megabyte per seconds even after being ssd connected to Usb 3.1, thunderbolt or type c connection on laptop/desktop/mobile phone (I have note 9)
3. Super costly, we are paying just for portability and weight. Not enough gains compared to other normal external storage options
I am still going to keep using as I bought for compact design and type c-type c use case
CON: Wish it had some LED lights or something to indicate activity. Also, you don't get a full 500 GB, you get only around 465 GB. I knew from previous reviews that is expected ... but still, a little disappointed about all vendors (not just samsung) twist the GB figures (they never use multiples of 1024 instead they will use 1000) and don't reveal exactly what you are getting in their advertisements.
2)Built quality's if wires -5** (never seen such a high quality in wires)
3)colour- good but I have to check how many days it last..so..4** for now
5) finally FAST..DONT HOPE BIG
a)time taken to transfer 1gb=40sec
b)time taken to transfer 100gb file at a time=1hour ...
Only 250mb/sec speed inUSB 3.0 so...3**
RATED 3 BECAUSE THE LIE ABOUT SPEED IN 3.0 PORT

As a back up drive for my photos when travelling it is sublime. Very light, no moving parts to break, impact resistant and of course it’s compact. Copying to and from the T5 is super fast.....5 times faster than my 2 1/2” La Cie drive. Very highly recommended.
Well worth the price.
