I recently purchased the Samsung T5 - 1TB model and by no means is it a bad drive, but I had been reading reviews on the Samsung X5 and wanted to see if it is as fast as people say.

The X5 comes in a nice compact box, and as you can see, is barely bigger than the T5 and fits in my hand easily.

To test the speed of this drive, I did not use any synthetic benchmark testing, as I feel those do not represent real world performance. The laptop in use has the following specifications:

Laptop: Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018 model)
RAM: 16GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3
Storage: 512GB M.2 2280 SSD, PCIe NVME
Operating system: Windows 10 home

I plugged both drives and transferred 357GB of data (i.e., movies pictures, TV shows, etc) from the T5 to X5. As you can see from my pictures, it took just about 20 minutes to copy everything over. The X5 did not come anywhere close to the promised 2800 write speed, but I can definitely say it''s much faster than the T5 I own and my old hard drive. For kicks, I copied a 5GB file, planet of the apes to itself and that took literally 5 seconds. INSANE!

I do want to say that the read speeds arent impressive. Copying(reading) that same file to my desktop from the X5, oddly only netted me 9mbs, and would occasionally spike up to over 100mbs.

The other thing to note is that the X5 does heat up when used for an extended period of time. Research shows that the drive throttles itself when getting too hot, which could explain why the speed dipped every so often, but all drives heat up so I wouldn''t let this deter you from buying it.

Update 06/12/2019:

I had to return this ssd, due to its lackluster performance. I owned both the 1TB and 2TB model and in my experience, this drive did not perform even remotely close to its promised speeds.

My first issue is that its read/write speeds were extremely inconsistent. Ranging from 1.5GBs all the way down to 400MBs, with it averaging 400MBs. This is unacceptable considering I own the Samsung T5 and it performed better in almost every test I did.

I CANNOT recommend this to any consumer.

Super fast! Upgraded from a Samsung T5 and couldn''t be happier. Setting this up as a Mac boot drive requires one to actually read Apples instructions for formatting as a GUID partition. In other words, the option is there; you just have to know how to get to it! It''s somewhat pricey but beats having to crack open your iMac to get a faster boot drive.

1/26 Update - Still going strong! For comparison purposes I went back to the T5 as my boot drive and the difference was shocking. Everything is faster with the X5 from photo/video editing to just general system responsiveness. Reusing my T5 as a Time Machine drive. Apple should be embarrassed for the prices they charge on their SSD upgrades compared to this option.

I have two computers with Thunderbolt 3 ports. This drive was not recognized by either of them. Apparently, you have to install software in order to get your Thunderbolt 3 port to work. I was surprized by this. I thought you could just plug this in and get it to work. Not so.

This drive only works with a thunderbolt port. It does not work with a USB port. This means it is reliant on the Thunderbolt port. The problem is that your laptop thunderbolt port needs software to work. Finding the right software is not easy. So, if you need to share files between two computers they both need a thunderbolt port and they both need the correct software installed to make them work. I''m pretty good at software but the time involved to figure out the correct software wasn''t worth it for me. I returned the drive.

I''m confident that once you get the right software installed to get your thunderbolt port to recognize your new drive your will be really happy. This drive promises screaming fast speeds.

After spending a few weeks with the Samsung X5, I can wholeheartedly say that this drive is amazing- it is the lamborghini of portable drives. My workflow involves backing up a lot of data at a secondary facility that we do not have network access into. Moving data back and forth (large batches of scans from a micro-CT) was painful, even with a decent usb 3 drive. Being able to utilize PCI speeds you get through thunderbolt saves me a good chunk of time every day. Overall thoughts on the device Form factor: It is about the size of a portable 2.5” hard drive. It’s likely only as big as it is to help with heat dissipation to prevent throttling- this baby gets nice and toasty when it’s been running at full speed for a bit. It has a nice premium look to it, the smooth silver casing offset by the red rubber bottom looks nice. Speed: The one part anyone cares about if you are spending big money on a drive. I can safely say that this drive is worth the price of admission. Granted, it doesn’t hit the theoretical speeds it is labeled with hitting (honestly, nothing ever hits the advertised speeds in my experience) but it comes a lot closer than I would have expected. In my day to day usage, I’ve found it to consistently perform close to the speeds achieved through benchmarking (photo attached). Negatives: Biggest negative here is that it is only compatible with thunderbolt 3 ports. That means either a relatively new laptop or a desktop with a PCI thunderbolt card added on. Not being backwards compatible with USB really pushes this drive into a niche market, given its price point. Overall- I really enjoy this drive, and it has had a measurable impact on my day to day. If you need to move a lot of data back and forth on the regular using hardware, or expandable storage for your laptop that functions as fast as your NVME, this is the drive for you.

The speeds of the 500GB drive on a macbook pro 2020: Write 2GB/s, Read 2.4GB/s. If you consider error correction that is close to using 30Gbits/s (during reads) of the 40Gbits channel. That is as fast as the internal drive (at least in this macbook). It is really that fast. You must use the provided cable.

Never Slow Down Again

Data Transfer Speed

Spend more time being creative. The X5’s read/write speeds of 2,800/2,300 MB/s* are 5.2x/4.5x faster than a Portable SSD with SATA interface and 25.5x/20.9x faster than an external HDD**. Transfer a 20GB 4K UHD video from your PC to the X5 in as little as 12 seconds.**

*Performance may vary depending on host configuration.

**Based on the internal comparison test with a Samsung external HDD 1TB (HX-MK20P12) and a Samsung Portable SSD 1TB (T5).

Built to be Cool and Durable

Thermal Management Technology

Never worry about heat. The X5’s DTG (Dynamic Thermal Guard) technology helps maintain optimal performance and temperature, and a heat sink keeps surface temperature below 45°C*. Its body has no moving parts and is reinforced with magnesium alloy that can even withstand a 6 ft. drop**.

*Based on data evaluated at room temperature. It may vary depending on the ambient temperature.

**The internal free fall shock was conducted under controlled conditions.

Outshine Them All

Revolutionary Design

You’re special, so is the X5. Inspired by a supercar, its dynamic and streamlined shape screams speed and a glossy top boasts premium quality. The practical ridged bottom prevents slips when held. Enjoy maximized portability and optimized design equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
