CNET First Look
The tiny Samsung Portable SSD T1 packs a crazy punchCNET editor Dong Ngo shares some of his inspiring thoughts on the one-of-a-kind and totally awesome Samsung Portable SSD T1 drive.
[MUSIC] Hi guys. I'm **** Ngo, and this is a Samsung Portable SSD T1 drive. Now, it's basically the extra mini version of this Samsung 850 EVO drive that I have here. Now mini because super small. Take a look at this. It actually smaller in my name card right here. And actual because it actually work outside computer and connect to computer using these micro standard USB [UNKNOWN] port right here. The drive's also super light. In fact, at one ounce, about the same weight as this included short USB cable. The T1 works with bot Windows and Mac computer, and it supports encryption. That means it can easily set up a password protected content store in case you lose it. [MUSIC] Remember though if you sell the password and you forget it you will lose all the data on your suit. So that's a very nice feature, but that's not for those who are absent-minded. The best thing about this T1 drive here is the performance. In testing, it's [INAUDIBLE] the real world speed of some 160 megabytes per second for writing, and close to 300 megabytes per second. For reading and a [UNKNOWN] among all [UNKNOWN] drives that it's non [UNKNOWN]. Now the question is how much? Well the t1 is available in three capacities 250 gigabytes, 500 gigabytes and one terabyte. That costs $180 $300 and $600 respectively. Not exactly cheap but in this case I believe its totally worth the investment. To find out more check out my full review at CNet.com. Basically apart from the pricing the T1 is what any portable device should be. And that's mean when I'm holding this, I am what any man should be. The thing is, sometime, I think so even when holding nothing. And that's because I'm **** Ngo, and this has been the First Look at the Samsung Portable SSD T1 drive. This feels good a thing that way, you know. Doesn't hurt anybody. [MUSIC]
