Samsung T1 500GB USB 3.0 External SSD Review
Clearly the Samsung T1 is neither priced nor intended to go up against dedicated "in your case all the time" storage solutions. The USB 3.0 interface is not a patch on a SATA 6Gbs option and certainly nowhere near a PCI Express one. So bear in mind that it will pretty much be rooted to the bottom of our graphs throughout this review. Instead of thinking how badly it performs compared to the rest, think how well it does given that USB 3.0 has, at best, half the bandwidth available to it of the other interfaces.
