Samsung Portable SSD T1
Samsung T1 portable SSD has been released for a few years and it once was regarded as another revolutionary portable device. Compared with traditional USB 3.0 removable hard disk, Samsung T1 is different in the following 4 aspects:
- Smaller and more lightweight: it measures 53x71x9mm and weights 30 grams while a 1TB Seagate HDD measures 113.5 x 76 x 12.1mm and weights 140 grams.
- Improved chip: Samsung T1 portable SSD drive takes 3D Vertical NAND Technology which stacks 32 cells on top of each other to remove previous interfere.
- Safer: by default, Samsung T1 contains a safe partition and a storage partition, and users can only see the safe partition before activating the drive. In addition, if users encrypt the device during the process of activating, keep the password in mind, because without typing the code users will see the safe partition only, too.
- Faster: it offers up to 450 MB/s read/write speed as well as 8000/21000 IOPS random read/write speed, which is largely due to the use of 3D Vertical NAND Technology. Here are test results of both Samsung and Seagate disk in ATTO, getting the results below: See: How to Measure Disk Performance
Samsung T1 read/write speed: 462.8MB/s and 441MB/S
