Samsung has announced a new solid-state drive family – the SSD T3. The new drives measure 74 x 58 x 10.5 mm (L x W x H) and weigh just 51 grams, which makes them more compact than the already released T1 solid-state drives by Samsung.
The new T3 solid-state drives feature capacities of 250 GB, 500 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB and use USB 3.0 ports for the best performance possible. This allows the drives to reach 450 MB/sec of sequential read speed. In addition the drives support 256-bit AES encryption, which guarantees that no one will be able to read your precious data. All it takes to use these new Samsung T3 SSDs is a Windows 7 computer or newer, a Mac with OS X 10.7 or newer or an Android device (4.4 KitKat or newer).
The new T3 SSDs come with a 3-year warranty and sell for USD 130 (250 GB model), USD 220 (500 GB model), USD 430 (1 TB model) and USD 850 (2 TB model).
