Samsung’s Portable SSDs Are On Sale, So Get Moving

You can never have too many portable drives on hand. Having a spare drive that you can use for a quick back up is always handy.

While a hard disk drive will give you more space for a cheaper price, its mechanical nature means that it will wear down over time. That’s something you need to factor in if you’re going to be frequently moving a lot of files on and off your drive. You’re better off with a portable solid-state drive. It might cost you a bit more, but it’s well worth it in the long run.

The Samsung T5 portable SSD (2TB) is currently going for $264.29 over at Amazon. That’s a pretty decent pretty price, considering that other Australian electronic retailers, like JB Hi-FI, Bing Lee and The Good Guys, sell this portable SSD for up to $329.

If you’re looking to move some of your PS4 games over to your brand new PS5, this Samsung SSD is a pretty solid option. The Samsung T5 SSD has read and write speeds of up to 540 MB/s and 520 MB/s, all wrapped up in a slim aluminium package.

Even from a non-gaming perspective, this drive is a great options if your day-to-day life involves photos and videos with chunky file sizes.

If you’re looking for something a little bit faster, there’s a few other portable Samsung SSD sales running at the moment.
