Samsung P3 Portable External Hard Drive

Whether you're transporting sensitive information, bringing along some media for a long flight or backing up important documents, the Samsung P3 Portable External Hard Drive delivers with the capacity you need and the data transfer speeds you want. Designed with portability in mind, the compact dimensions are very light weight make the P3 easy to take with you wherever you go. With its graceful aesthetic, it will look good anywhere, like in the boardroom, classroom or living room.

Extreme Portability

Modern computer devices have allowed more mobility in today's fast paced environment; your data should be just as mobile as you are. Now it can be with the P3 Portable External Hard Drive. Measuring at 82 x 111mm, the P3 is roughly the same size as a large cell phone, making this external drive convenient for laptop bags, purses and even pants pockets. And at 150g, you'll hardly notice you're carrying it.

Ample Storage

While flash drives are convenient solutions, they can't compete with an external hard drive when it comes to storage. Available in 1TB and 500GB capacities, you'll have more than ample storage space for presentations, documents, designs, videos, music and more. With the P3, you'll always have your most important files with you, whether they're family vacation pictures or large creative assets for a design. If nothing else, you'll never be without your entire MP3 collection or you favorite full-HD movies again! Best of all, USB3.0 ensures fast data transfer, so you're not stuck wasting time watching progress bars.


Maximum Security
  • For data thieves, physical access typically means total access. That's why the P3 Portable offers security software technologies to prevent unauthorized access to your data whenever you leave your external drive unattended. Secure Drive provides comprehensive, worry-free data security, and SecretZone encrypts your data on the device, hiding it in a virtual drive that is invisible to users who do not have the proper password.

Just to clarify a few things; its powered by USB.
Its a somewhat slim device, light. It has a dim light, so you can use it at night, and it won't light up the sky like the northern lights.
Its quiet, for me it didn't vibrate or make any noises.
Its fast too, transferring a 1GB of data within a minute!

It also comes with drivers so you can use it on your mac as well as your pc!!

neat little HDD, well worth the money

I travel quite a bit and often need to move media files, sometimes quite large, between locations and devices.

I like this hard drive for the following reasons;

- USB powered, so no need to carry a PSU
- VERY small footprint - takes up hardly any room in my gadget bag
- Lightweight
- Very quiet and minimal vibration
- Plenty of space for every possible file I need whilst on the road or to transfer.
- Mac & PC drivers included on it
- Gentle light that doesn't illuminate the entire room on a night!

As with other USB drives, I enjoy been able to plug it into a WD TV Live Media Player and play files directly from that, and into my Buffalo TeraStation III 4TB Network Attached Storage for one touch backup of files to NAS storage.

All in all, a great piece of kit.

My experiences with Samsung have always been reliable - when it comes to data storage this is an important characteristic.

Like all storage devices, system files etc. will take up some of the advertised space - in reality there is just over 900Gb of storage here. All packed in a surprisingly small space (13.7 x 18.5 x 3.9 cm). About a passport. It's also very light.

Its a plug and play device that installs itself once connected by the short USB cable. A couple of things about this cable - its USB 3.0 (the fastest transfer currently available) and also very very very short. Which may present a problem when trying to connect to something a little far away. There is no external powering and powers via the USB which will suck up battery power if your laptop is not connected to the mains for example. For safety there is Samsung's 'SafetyKey protection' function.

Overall this is fantastic value and no problems to report yet.

**Edit: So good I just bought a second!**

I am very satisfied with this hard drive.

I travel a lot and am always on the lookout for a high capacity USB powered hard drive with a very small footprint so it takes up little room in my laptop bag.

This hard drive is

Lightweight
Very small
Very slim
Quiet in operation
1 TB so large enough to carry all the files I could need while away from home.

In other words it fits my requirements perfectly.

I wasn't aware that some external hard drives have problems with Macs until I looked to buy one. This one worked perfectly as a back-up drive for my Apple Mac with no additional configuration needed. Very slim, very neat. Can't comment on reliability as I haven't had it long enough but it is perfect for my requirements.

Having bought many external hard drives previously, I have found that WD or Samsung have tended to be the best. Aside from nice to haves such as - quiet, quick & ideally decent size (for portables in particular) the crucial thing to me is that the HD is reliable and works consistently for at least a year or two, otherwise you may as well take a risk and not back your PC / Mac up. Well as you can see from the title, it stopped working, or intermittently worked after a couple of months of buying it and doesn't allow me to add folders or content?!?! which is obviously a big problem! Unfortunately I wouldn't recommend this product again

Buying a Samsung branded drive I expected the case to be of higher quality. It's basically on par with the very cheap unknown branded portable cases you see sold online. The plastic is so thin it flexes with just a finger push and the USB port is not very secure. It wobbles if you move the USB cable and it actually cut out if you're not gentle moving the drive while plugged in.

The transfer speed however is very good. The internal Seagate HDD is fast, the latest USB 3 chipset and the short USB cable all contribute to this being one of the fastest portable drives I've ever used. The downside to the short USB cable is.. well it's short.

Samsung also do another portable HDD called the M3. This comes is a MUCH more robust case. However it's a little larger, a little slower, and a little more expensive.

If you want a HDD that's going to be carried around all the time get the M3. This is too fragile. However if you intend to plug it in and leave it alone then this is a small, neat, fast portable drive.

The Samsung P3 is a great little external hard drive and is a good alternative to the Seagate models that I've favoured in the past. The device is powered by the USB port, so no need to fiddle abut with bulky power adapters (which makes it an ideal model if you travel a lot and need to use your external drive while you're away). This drive is also extremely quiet - almost silent - and is perfect if you like to leave your external drives plugged in all the time as you don't get that permanent buzzing sound you get with some models. The other main selling point is the USB 3.0 compatibility, so data transfers can be lighting fast if you have the right setup. PC and MAC compatibility is the icing on the cake for a handy little device that ticks all the boxes.
