If you had switched from HDD to SSD yet you might surely understand the difference in processing and transfer speed among  the two. Yes, its huge no matter how much you enhance your PC and HDD yet there is a huge difference in performance between the two which you  will understand only after you switch to SSD. The price of these storage devices is too high but they also provide you high speed of 10gbps and also great performance. The T5 adopts the form factor of the T3 (and the T1) and swaps the connector for a 10Gbps USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 2 model, delivering twice the maximum theoretical transfer rate of its predecessors.


The drive contains setup files for an application called SamsungPortableSSD for Windows, Mac, and Android, whose primary function is to facilitate password-based hardware encryption. When you install and launch the app, you are prompted to set a password for the drive. If you ignore this, you can use the Samsung T5 like any other drive. If you do set a password, however, you need to enter it every time you plug the drive in to a host device. This app also let’s you check for your drives firmware updates.
