Samsung Announces New T3 2TB Portable SSD

Recommended Posts

Samsung successfully released its ultra portable SSD T1 a year ago. In our review we found it to very powerful for its very small size and built well. Samsung has built off of this technology by doubling the maximum capacity while maintaining the same high performance. Aside from doubling the capacity, Samsung also switched the outer casing from plastic to metal adding both durability and thermal guard. The interface is now USB 3.1 Type C giving it even more compatibility options.

Seems to me like it is TLC-nand 850 Evo instead of MLC 850 pro http://samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/minisite/SSD/global/html/portablessdt3/specifications.html

At least that's what the sizes of 250 and 500gb suggests as 850 Pro not is available in these sizes but 256 and 512gb. Would have been harder to tell had these T3 drives only been able in 1 and 2tb, considering that Samsung not mention in the specs if it is TLC or MLC.

Weird that the warranty is only three years compared to 5 years for 850 Evo and 10 years for 850 Pro. And I don't think it could be the 840 Evo or Pro because these ssds was not available in 2tb.

Somewhat weird that it is only 3 years warranty for this Portable ssd considering that 850 evo have 5 years warranty and 10 years for 850 pro.
