When it comes to portable SSDs, Samsung is perhaps the biggest name in the business, especially when it comes to super-fast drives.
The X5 Thunderbolt 3 Portable SSD is one such drive, and right now, the 500GB model can be had for $299.99 including shipping, which is around a 25% discount on what you would normally expect to hand over for such a drive.
Thanks to that Thunderbolt 3 port, buyers can expect up to 2800 MB/s sequential read and 2100 MB/s sequential write speeds, which is definitely not to be scoffed at. All of that is thanks to the 500GB NVMe SSD and Samsung’s V-NAND 3-Bit MLC that sits beneath the shell that protects everything. It may not be the cheapest SSD around, but it’s one of the, if not the best you can buy.
- 500GB NVMe SSD
- 1 x Thunderbolt 3 Port
- Up to 2800 MB/s Sequential Read
- Up to 2100 MB/s Sequential Write
- Samsung V-NAND 3-Bit MLC
- Dynamic Thermal Guard Technology
- AES 256-Bit Encryption
Anyone who is need of a blazingly fast SSD but also needs it to be relatively rugged and safe to take a few bumps and bruises really should put this on the top of their list. We would probably say that even at its normal asking price, but with this 25% saving, it’s really a great option.
If you’re looking for something a little less costly, the Samsung T5 drives are very well thought of. You’ll miss out on the same hugely impressive speeds though – the T5 is only capable of 540MB/s, although that’s not exactly slow by any stretch of the imagination.
