Even so, until now you’ve had to choose between a pack-of-cards sized hard drive with terabytes of storage, and a super-teeny USB stick with mere gigabytes. The USB stick transfers files with lightning speed, while the HDD is slower. We want the best of both worlds: a high-capacity solid-state drive that uses an ultrafast USB 3.0 connection. And here’s an early contender: Samsung’s first portable solid-state drive.
Called the T1, it’s small, yet fast. Like 425 MB/s read and 412 MB/s write fast. So how does Samsung do it? The T1 is based on Samsung’s existing 850 EVO SSD and uses V-NAND memory chips. This is an innovation that lets the manufacturer stack memory
