Brief Introduction to Samsung T1 Portable SSD Drive and Steps to Partition It

  • Contents:

    Samsung T1 portable SSD, which can be regarded as another revolutionary portable device, has been released, and now users can purchase it to try it out. The 250GB model retails for 180$, 500GB for 300$, and 1TB for 600$. In this post we will compare Seagate Backup plus USB 3.0 Mobile HDD 1TB with Samsung T1 USB 3.0 SSD 1TB as well as show steps to well partition a Samsung T1 portable SSD drive.

    Compared with traditional USB 3.0 removable hard disk, Samsung T1 is different on the following 4 aspects (here we take the 1TB for example):
    1.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.
    2.Improved chip: Samsung T1 portable SSD drive takes 3D Vertical NAND Technology which stacks 32 cells on top of each other to remove previous interference.
    3.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.
    4.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. We test both Samsung and Seagate disk in ATTO, getting the results below:
    Samsung T1 read/write speed: 462.8MB/s and 441MB/S
    Seagate read/write speed: 112.3MB/s and 113.1MB/s

    Therefore, it is worth buying the portable solid state hard disk though it is expensive. Nevertheless, like using other hard disks, users may meet partitioning problems when using Samsung T1 SSD. For example, a certain partition on the SSD is running out of space. What should users do when these problems emerge? The best choice is to partition Samsung T1 portable SSD drive reasonably. Here we recommend MiniTool Partition Wizard for Windows users, which is free but capable of solving most partitioning problems.
