Black Friday may have come and gone, but Cyber Monday and all of its deals have finally arrived. You can save on lots of popular products today, but there are a few discounts definitely worth a second look. The Samsung T7 Touch Portable SSD, for instance, is now just $160 during Amazon Cyber Monday deals. The $70 price cut on a product with this much efficiency and longevity is an especially noteworthy sale.
Whether for personal or professional use, portable SSDs are a necessity for many. Luckily, with a deal like this, one of the most popular, spacious, and advanced external drives is made even more affordable. Unfortunately, the Cyber Monday deal is not meant to last long, so you’ll have to buy quickly before the discounted price disappears.
The Samsung T7 Touch Portable SSD stands out in the market for a few reasons. It comes with a fingerprint and password security system, which means that it keeps your private files secure using either an AES 256-bit encryption to unlock with a touch of your finger or, if you prefer, with a basic password. It stores a hefty 1 TB of content and reads at impressive speeds of up to 1,050 MB/second, transferring files nearly 9.5x faster than competing hard drives. It also includes a status indicator, which is an LED square that illuminates to keep you informed of what your SSD is doing at a glance. All this in the compact size of a business card that’s even shock-resistant — withstanding drops from up to 6 feet high.
For those in the market for even more storage space, Amazon is selling the same product with 2 TB of storage for $299 — a more than $100 discount. The features, size, and speed are all the same as the 1 TB model. But, with the promise of an extra TB of storage space, the Samsung T7 Touch Portable SSD with 2 TB may be better suited for your specific needs at a slightly higher, but still discounted, price.
