Samsung Portable SSD X5

Samsung has launched a portable X-series NVMe SSD with support for Thunderbolt 3. The new Samsung Portable SSD X5 is designed for tech-savvy professionals and, according to Samsung, it can deliver read/write speeds up to 2,800/2,300 MB/s that are 5.2x/4.5x faster than a Portable SSD with SATA interface and 25.5x/20.9x faster than an external HDD. These speeds allow it to transfer a 20GB 4K UHD video file from your PC to the X5 in just 12 seconds.

The drive has been designed for editing 4K videos, creating real-time 3D renderings, and working with extremely high-resolution and data-dense RAW photos. It is plug-and-play and is compatible with both Mac and Windows devices that have a Thunderbolt 3 port – or users will have to buy adaptors.

The X5 runs Samsung’s Portable SSD Software which includes AES 256-bit hardware data encryption and optional password protection. The drive also features a shock-resistant internal frame and rugged metal housing designed to withstand falls from up to 2 meters (6.6 feet), while the integrated Dynamic Thermal Guard technology and built-in heat sink keep the unit cool no matter what the workload. The X5 Portable SSDs are available in three capacities - 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB, at prices ranging from 70c/GB to 80c/GB.

The new Samsung Portable X5 SSDs come with a 3-year warranty and make a good option for media professionals that value high-speed portable storage but, like all electronics, they may eventually fail and make valuable files that contain videos, images, hi-res photos inaccessible.
