Conclusion of the Samsung Portable SSD X5 Review
This time Samsung is not a pioneer when it comes to external NVMe SSDs, but delivers a solid product, which is currently cheaper than the competition. Unfortunately, the slightly larger and much heavier case is disadvantageous compared to the Portable SSD T5. However, the new model convinces with a very high speed, which simply has to be cooled. Nevertheless, the Portable SSD X5 is slowed down in continuous use.
Overall, the Samsung Portable SSD X5 is recommended in its range. For most people, however, one of the predecessor models, which delivers speeds of around 500 MB/s, will probably be sufficient.
