4.0 out of 5 stars Fast & Durable External Drive… Software is a Mess
By Chris on October 4, 2018
I really love this portable speed demon. It's built very well and is the perfect size for putting in your pocket or laptop bag. However, the software that comes with it should not be installed on a Mac. It caused all sorts of problems and kept disconnecting the Samsung SSD from my 2017 MacBook Pro. I ended up having to copy all the files back to my Mac, uninstalling the software and drivers, and reformatting the Samsung SSD as Mac OS Extended (Journaled).

If you accidentally installed the software on your Mac, back up all your files and follow the instructions below that are listed but hard to find in the Samsung T5 SSD Manual. You can also refer to the screenshot I attached to this review which Samsung explains how to delete it from Windows and Mac.

Software needs to be deleted manually by executing CleanupPSSD_Mac.sh in SW installation path.
(Normally ~/Library/Application Support/PortableSSD/CleanupPSSD_Mac.sh)

*Third party cleaners such as AppCleaner may not delete “Samsung Portable SSD” SW completely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works with BMPCC 4K camera
Reviewed in Canada on February 3, 2019
OLD Review: (First picture only)
Bought this Samsung T5 Portable SSD 500GB USB 3.1 (MU-PA500B/AM) for 149.99$ for Blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4k (BMPCC). Right out of the box, it was formatted to ‘OSX extended’ using the camera itself. Testing/video recordings were done for one minute only and it did pass all codecs/modes/max fps (including 120fps), except Lossless RAW (which is recorded in DNG) at 60fps for both UHD 3840x2160 and 4KDCI 4096x2160. See attached picture for more details.
This SamsungT5 SSD can record excess of 880Mbps which is manufacturer’s stated data storage/recording rate for ProRes 422HQ, 3840x2160 at 24fps.

Pros/cons:
* Price, you decide if it is right. (You can get 1TB internal SSD for same price too)
* Lightweight and half the size of regular SSD.
* Comes with USB 3.1 and USB C adapter cables.
* Power consumption is just 4 watts (0.8A at 5vDC) in comparison to 6 watts (1.2A at 5vDC) by other Samsung 860 EVO V-NAND 500Gb internal SSD.
* Warms up fast when recording at higher resolution at 60fps continuously for more than 5-10mins.
* 8 out of the 10 times, Bmpcc camera refuses to recognize the drive, especially when both are booted up ‘plugged in’ together. Solution is to plug it in only after the camera is powered up first.
* USB 3.1 to iMac computer data transfer speed is approx. 400-500mbps.

UPDATE October 2019 (see 2nd update picture with red note):
Above review was for older/original firmware 5.2 of the BMPCC 4K camera. Good news is that Samsung T5 now can record ALL new formats (as par new Firmware 6.2.1 update :) without any problems.
Note: Bad news is that new firmware allows you to record 120fps in RAW (aka BRAW) and ProRes at 1080p only.
