Head over to Newegg’s online store and get the Samsung T7 1TB portable solid state drive for a low price of $91.99 when you use the code EMCBNAZ5 during checkout. This code only seems to work on the blue version of the SSD, but this price is one of the best we’ve ever seen. Even on Black Friday it only dropped to around $110 at most places. This deal is much better than what we’re seeing around right now, too, with Amazon offering the next best price at $115. That does apply to all three colors, though, so if you want to pay a bit extra for your favorite colorway you can.
You could also upgrade to the Samsung T7 Touch, which has a fingerprint sensor and an LED indicator for added security. It’s on sale for $159.99 at Amazon. That’s $30 off its street price and only about $10 above the best price we saw over Black Friday. It’s certainly a good deal even if it costs quite a bit extra. Guess it just depends if those other features are worth it to you.
Samsung T7 1TB portable SSD | $60 off
When we reviewed the Samsung T7 last October, we gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 and a Recommended badge. Richard Devine said, “The real benefit to the T7 is its size… it weighs only 58 grams and literally fits inside any pocket. It’s beyond convenient to carry about, and it’s also plenty tough enough.”
In addition to the 1TB capacity, you get read and write speeds of up to 1,050 MB/s and 1,000 MB/s respectively. Compared to the previous-generation T5 portable SSD that’s nearly double the speeds. Maximize the speeds you get by using the T7 with a USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 port, otherwise it might not quite be that fast. The SSD is still backwards compatible with older ports, and the reliability stays solid no matter what.
When it comes to durability, you’ll find the T7 is shock and drop resistant. It can bounce around in your backpack or purse with no issues. You can take it with you anywhere you go. It also has a dynamic thermal guard that helps keep it cool and protects your data while it’s in use.
You’ll get both a USB-C to USB-C cable and a USB-C to USB-A cable so you can make this SSD work with a variety of ports.
