Samsung Reveals Tiny External 1TB SSD
Ashley Allen / 2 years ago
At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Monday, Samsung launched a new external solid state hard drive called the T1. Weighing little more than an ounce, and with dimensions the size of a credit card, the T1 SSD packs up to one terabyte of storage inside its tiny case.
Since most external hard drives are third-party – they use existing controllers and NANDs and package them within their own case – this marks the first time in which a tier one hard drive manufacturer is releasing its own external SSD.
The T1 will be available in 250GB, 500GB and 1TB capacities, priced at $180, $300, and $600, respectively, and units ship later this month.
