Now is an excellent opportunity to stock up on microSD cards for your phone or console, as well as fresh portable drives for all of your critical information. A new Amazon deal has reduced the price of Samsung storage devices by up to 67 percent, including some of our favorites. The T7 Shield, the latest model in the company’s T7 drive series, has dropped to a new low of $90 for the 1TB model, plus you can purchase a Samsung 980 Pro SSD in 1TB for only $120 or a 256GB EVO Select memory-card-with-adapter package for only $24.
Because of its generally quick read/write speeds and pocket-friendly form, Samsung’s T7 line of portable SSDs has long been one of our favorites. All of the T7 drives are small enough to fit in your back pocket or a filled travel bag, making them an excellent choice for professionals who travel frequently and require extra storage space for crucial documents and information. The T7 Shield is the newest addition to the series, and it features a more durable casing that allows it to survive nearly 10-foot fall in addition to being IP65 water- and dust-resistant. It has read/write speeds of 1,050/1,000 MB/s and a Dynamic Thermal Guard that manages heat to assist sustain performance even when you’re pushing the drive to its maximum.
If you’re finally ready to expand the capacity on your PS5, Samsung’s 980 Pro internal drive is a wonderful option, especially at this pricing. It has read rates of up to 7,000 MB/s and a nickel coating to reduce heat levels for enhanced efficiency. However, you will need a heatsink to use this drive with the PS5, and if you want to keep things simple, you could pay $150 for a bundle that includes one with Samsung’s drive.
The microSD cards featured in this deal are compatible with the Nintendo Switch, smartphones and tablets, cameras, and other devices. The 256GB EVO Select model on sale is appealing because the reduction is substantial (it’s only $4 more than it was during the Prime Early Access Sale last month) and it includes a full-sized adapter.
