Box contents may differ depending on the packaging type.

System Requirements

The following requirements must be met to utilize the fast data transfer speed of your T1.

1

PCs with USB 3.0 support

USB (Universal Serial Bus) is a serial input/output technology for connecting computers to peripherals. USB 3.0 (5Gbps) supports up to 10 times faster data transfer compared to USB 2.0

(480 Mbps). The T1's data transfer speed is optimal with USB 3.0, while using a lower version such as USB 2.0 or 1.1 will result in lower performance.

* Performance may vary depending on each user's system even when using a USB 3.0 connection. In particular, when UASP (USB Attached SCSI Protocol) is not supported, performance may be lower. Confirm the compatibility from the host PC.

Caution: When your T1 is connected to a device that only supports USB 2.0 or 1.1, the device may not recognize your T1 or may display a popup suggesting that formatting is required. If your T1 is formatted as suggested in this popup, your data will be deleted permanently. Do not format your device. When you connect your T1 to a device that supports the USB 3.0 standard, the T1 will be recognized and you will be able to use it.

2

Connecting T1 to USB ports on devices other than PCs

Using the T1 by connecting it to devices other than PCs that support USB may be restricted depending on the USB specifications and operating system (OS) of the devices. When using the

T1 with devices other than PCs (e.g. TVs, printers, audio players, or other devices that support

USB), please check the specifications of the devices first.

In Australia, our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer

Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure. What constitutes a major failure is set out in the Australian Consumer Law.

Nothing in this Warranty purports to modify or exclude the conditions, warranties and undertakings, and other legal rights, under the Australian Competition and Consumer Act and other Australian laws. This

Warranty is in addition to other rights and identifies a preferred approach to resolving warranty claims which will be quickest and simplest for all parties, subject to the exclusions, terms and conditions below.

I. Coverage and Application

A. Samsung Electronics Australia Pty Ltd of 8 Parkview Drive Homebush Bay NSW 2127 ("Samsung") warrants that your Samsung product: y is of acceptable quality; y does not have a latent defect.

B. For the purpose of this Warranty, a "Samsung product" is a product which: y was manufactured by or on behalf of Samsung; and y bears a trade mark owned or used by Samsung (generally "SAMSUNG"); and y was sold by an Authorised Reseller or Distributor of Samsung; and y was purchased in Australia, y but does not include any hardware or software which is packaged or sold with a Samsung product unless that is itself a Samsung product or, that item is incorporated into the Samsung product or, in the case of software, pre-loaded onto the Samsung product at the time of sale.

II. Warranty Period

A. The period during which this Warranty is in effect will depend upon the Samsung product to which it relates. In all cases the commencement date for the period is the actual day of purchase, as reflected on the Authorised-Reseller's or Distributor’s invoice / receipt provided to you. The period during which each Samsung product which is the subject of this Warranty is covered by this Warranty is identified in Part II of this Warranty, however you may have statutory rights outside of this period.

15

III. Warranty Claim

A. If you consider that the Samsung product which you have purchased is not of acceptable quality, has a latent defect, or is otherwise not compliant with the conditions, warranties, undertakings, and legal rights given to you under Australian Law (for example, it appears faulty, or does not work at all or properly), you can make a claim under this Warranty.

B. Except where an International Product Warranty has been provided with your Samsung product, warranty service will only be provided in the specific country where the Samsung product was originally purchased. For example, if you have purchased the Samsung product within Australia, warranty service will be limited to Australia only.

C. If you purchased this product in Australia and wish to make a claim under this Warranty, you should:

contact 1300 362 603; visit the nearest Samsung Customer Service Plaza; or visit www.samsung.com/au.

PRODUCT ONLINE REGISTRATION

You can register your product online at www.samsung.com/au. While registration is not necessary to make a claim under this Warranty, it may assist Samsung to process any claim which you may make more quickly.

A. When you make any claim under this Warranty it is essential that you provide a copy of your proof of purchase of the Samsung product, whether in person, by email or by fax. A claim under this Warranty is not formally made unless and until that proof of purchase is provided. This does not detract from your statutory rights.

B. You will not be able to gain the benefit of this Warranty without making a claim. A claim must be made within the Warranty Period. This Warranty does not cover any defects not notified to Samsung within the Warranty Period, although you may have statutory rights outside of the Warranty Period.

C. If, following receipt of a claim under this Warranty, Samsung or its agent determine that your claim in respect of a Samsung product is valid (having regard to the terms of Part II of this Warranty), and:

(a) if the failure to comply with the warranty is not a major failure or a failure of substantial character, Samsung or its agent will either replace the Samsung product with the same or similar product or refund you the cost of a replacement, in each case depending upon what is reasonable in the circumstances and with regard to Samsung's statutory obligations and at no cost to you. Goods may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type with equal or greater capacity and functionality; or

(b) if the failure to comply with the warranty is a major failure or a failure of substantial character, you may reject the goods or require Samsung to pay you compensation for any reduction in the value of the goods below the price paid or payable by you for the goods.

The standard Samsung warranty periods are set out by product type in the table in Part II of this

Warranty, although each claim is assessed on its own merits and you may have statutory rights outside of the Warranty Period.

If Samsung provides you with either a replacement or refund, you immediately transfer ownership in the original Samsung product or part to Samsung. Any such resolution by Samsung of a claim under this

Warranty by you does not otherwise detract from any other statutory rights which you might have in the circumstances, including your right to monetary compensation for a valid claim.

16
