    4.0 out of 5 stars Works with BMPCC 4K camera
    Reviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on February 4, 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.
