Samsung's Portable SSD T3 May Be Tiny but Holds Plenty
Even though consumers are getting more and more used to storing their data in clouds owned and operated by companies such as Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Box, Dropbox and others, there is still something valuable about having all your data in a device on your own desk.
Or even in a device in your pocket that's not much larger than a pack of matches.
That device would be Samsung's Portable SSD T3. This little guy is light, compact and fast and, as amazing as it sounds, can store up to 2TB of content. The solid-state drive—no moving parts to jam or break down—has a USB-C port, future-proofing its connectivity and enabling it to work with many more devices.
