Samsung announced its T1 portable SSD lineup earlier this year at CES. Its tiny size and impressive specs caught our attention, but with retail prices upwards of $500 it wasn’t a practical choice for most people. Now the first significant price drops have put these drives within reach:
- 250GB T1 Portable SSD $97.99 at Adorama or $99.99 at Amazon (Reg. $150)
- 500GB T1 Portable SSD $197.99 at Adorama or $199.99 at Amazon (Reg. $250)
- 1TB T1 Portable SSD $397.99 at Adorama and at Amazon (Reg. $500)
Any of these drives would make a perfect backup solution or a super portable option for working with large photo and video files while on-the-go. Features include read-write speeds of up to 450MB/sec, optional AES 256 bit encryption, a tiny 71.0×9.2×53.2 mm form factor, and a 3 year warranty. The T1 lineup gets a rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars from Amazon reviewers, while the 250GB is the best selling External Solid State Drive on Amazon.
