The Samsung T5 is the star of the show when it comes to portable SSD storage. We have one of the 1TB models ourselves, and it’s been absolutely flawless while being super fast over USB-C, too. Right now you can get your very own in both 1TB and 500GB flavors at some pretty great prices. You really should check these out.

The two drives offer the same performance, with up to 540MB/s read and write speeds over a USB-C connection. They’re also able to offer optional password protection and encryption, should that be something you want to let the drive handle. They’re both impossibly small as well, taking up so little room it’s hard to believe there’s any storage inside them at all!

But there is, and with two storage options available with discounts right now, you have a couple of options to hand.

The only difference between the two drives is the color, with the larger of the two capacities coming in a black case while the smaller has a blue one. Beyond that, and of course the capacity, these two drives are the same. That means you get USB 3.1 Gen 2 transfer speeds and a full three-year warranty should anything untoward happen.

We’re big fans of these things, and while not normally cheap, they’re arguably the best around at their price point. We wouldn’t hesitate for a second in recommending the Samsung T5, no matter which storage capacity you opt for.

Please note that there is no special discount code to deal with in order to get the price cut. The price drop is live right now and probably won’t stick around for a long period of time. Therefore hurry up if you want to pick one of these drives for yourself or someone special.
