You can never have too much digital storage space, so it’s always a smart move to choose the best SSDs as long as they’re on sale and you have the cash to spare. The Samsung T7 is our current pick for the best portable SSD out there, and the 1TB variant is down to its lowest price yet. You can pick it up now on Amazon for $80. It typically retails for $140.
The T7 has fairly fast sequential read speeds of up to 1050MB/s. It is available in three colors: blue, black and red. If you have a bit more flexibility, you might be interested in picking up a 2TB version of the T7. It’s up to 50 percent off, depending on the color. The red variant is down to $135.
If you’re looking for a microSD card but don’t necessarily need a ton of storage for your particular device, Samsung’s 128GB EVO Select Card is worth considering. That, too, has fallen to an all-time low of just $12.49. It usually costs $20. Note that you won’t need a faster card than this for your Nintendo Switch or Steam Deck; those devices only support read speeds up to 104 MB/s.
Meanwhile, several other Samsung storage options went on sale last month and most of those deals are still going on. The T7 Shield, a beefier version of the T7, is $90 for the 1TB version (2TB and 4TB versions are also on sale). As for the 980 Pro with integrated heat sink, which is one of the best PS5 SSDs on the market, it’s available for $120 for 1TB of storage, almost half the usual price.
