Amazon is now offering the Samsung 2TB T7 Portable Solid-State Drive for $189.99 shipped. This one originally launched at over $300 and more regularly fetches around $230 these days. It is currently on sale for $210 directly from Samsung and is now matching the lowest price we have tracked on Amazon. This same goes for the 1TB model that is currently sitting at $104.99 shipped in all three colorways. While it might not be the new T7 Shield with the rubber shell we reviewed previously, it does deliver similar specs for even less right now. You’ll find up to 1,050MB/s data transfers here, USB-C connectivity, a USB-A cable included in the package, and support for USB 3.2 Gen 2 gear. Head below for additional details.
As of right now, the models above are among the best prices we can find for a portable SSD from a notable brand. While there are some slower options for a touch less, like the Crucial 1TB X6 at $95, when it comes to the 1,050MB/s category, the T7 models above are about as good as it gets at the moment outside of the newer PNY EliteX-PRO models that start from $66.
