Richard Leonarz, the Senior Marketing Manager at Samsung, stopped by the TweakTown booth at Storage Visions 2015 to speak about the new external Samsung USB 3.0 SSD. The Samsung Portable SSD T1 features Samsung's exclusive 3bit V-NAND and is designed to provide the ultimate storage performance for external drives.

The T1 comes in 250GB, 500GB, and 1TB capacities. The Portable SSD T1 provides 450 MB/s sequential read/write speeds, along with 21,000 random read IOPS and 8,000 write IOPS. The SSD also supports AES 256-bit encryption to provide data security. With a lightweight design off roughly one ounce the Portable SSD is good for on-the-go applications. Like all SSDs, the Portable SSD is shock resistant. This is an important consideration for both causal and professional users alike.
