Samsung T3 2TB External USB3 SSD Review

Final thoughts and the conclusion

As I stated right at the very beginning of this article, you
must test an SSD in its intended usage pattern. The Samsung T3 external USB3
SSD is designed to carry around large amounts of data, in a small lightweight
package, and can transfer these large amounts of data quickly and reliably.

In this usage pattern the Samsung T3 excelled. The Samsung T3
is small, lightweight, robust, and it is certainly fast, pushing USB3 to its
limits.

On my test PC, the Samsung T3 external USB3 SSD performed
at, or above, its official specification, so hats off to Samsung for not
claiming performance specifications that are unobtainable.

Stability

I have only had the Samsung T3 SSD for about two weeks, so
it’s not possible to comment on the drive’s long term reliability. What I can
say is that during the testing period, the Samsung T3 has been 100% stable and
has caused no problems whatsoever.

Conclusion:


Let us summarise the most important positive and negative
points below:

Positive:

  • Small, extremely lightweight, and robust.
  • exFAT file system ensures excellent cross platform
    compatibility.
  • Excellent performance, which pushes USB3 to its limits.
  • 3 year limited warranty.
  • Reasonably priced.
  • Available in very large storage capacities.

Negative:

  • The supplied USB connection cable is rather short.


Price and availability

The Samsung T3, 2TB SSD is available now, and I found it at Amazon
UK
priced at £589.98 including VAT.

The parting sentence is:

“The Samsung T3 2TB is an outstanding external SSD, aimed
squarely at the user who requires high performance, and needs to be able to
carry around huge amounts of data".

Rating system

The editor rating is based on the following key factors.

  • Performance
  • Stability (is the device stable?)
  • Price
  • Warranty
  • Supplied accessories (what is included in the package)
