Samsung’s Legendary T5 Portable SSD Drops To $87.94 From $130, Features Blazing Fast Read/Write Speeds Of 540MB/s

The biggest name in portable SSDs right now is the Samsung T5. We use one of these drives ourselves and it’s been pretty amazing, and right now you can pick up the 500GB model at a discount. These drives aren’t normally the cheapest around, so when one pops up in a sale it’s a great time to take the plunge.

The Samsung T5 500GB portable SSD would normally sell for anything up to $130, but right now Amazon is offering the same drive for just $87.94. This drive is super fast thanks to its 540MB/s read and write speeds, and with USB 3.1 Gen2 connection speeds available, you won’t be left hanging around while your files do their thing.

As far as portable SSDs go, this is one of the better looking options on the market as well. With a blue metal chassis and simple branding, you won’t hate looking at this thing every time you open your bag.
