Samsung’s T5 Portable SSD with a whopping 1TB of internal storage is currently being offered via Amazon for just $177.99. The price has dropped down from $250 and represents an opportunity to save serious money on serious Samsung hardware.

It’s actually extremely deceptive just how lightweight and compact this Samsung product actually is. The full product is smaller than the size of an average business card and weighs just 51 grams and measures in at just 10.5mm in thickness. It is literally the definition of compact and light and is the perfect choice for anyone who actually wants something fast, high-capacity, and utterly portable.

Once you get over just how portable this beauty is, you’re left with an SSD which is “ready anytime, anywhere” and which can be connected easily to any machine, should be blazing fast in transferring data, and should be simple and efficient to use, as any good and well-designed product should be. And, like with any SSD, Samsung is pretty much guaranteeing huge performance speed performances over standard external HDD, suggesting that its T5 1TB solution should be good for a performance boost of up to 4.9x. Your own mileage will vary but that is an extremely impressive boost for those who achieve it.

Samsung has also ensured that the T5 drive comes embedded with “new intuitive software” for PCs and Macs that allows the password of the drive to be easily set and for new and improved firmware updates to be downloaded with relative ease. There is also a mobile app for Android and iOS devices which will let you manage things a lot easier and in a more efficient manner.

All-in-all, even if you take away the more modern features of this drive, you are still left with a tiny, compact SSD complete with a whopping 1TB of internal storage, and which comes from one of the world’s most trusted manufacturers with a huge discount applied. We aren’t sure how long this particular deal and price reduction will last for so it makes perfect sense to go and grab it right now whilst you still can.
