[Amazon.ca] Samsung Portable SSDs on Sale, T7 500gb $89.99, T5 1TB $144.99

I have been looking to buy portable SSDs to expand my laptop's storage capacity. Noticed, couple of Samsung SSDs on sale at the moment. They are some of the best and fastest SSDs in the market. So, if you are looking for one, consider buying one. Available in 3 different colours.

Samsung T7 500gb $89.99: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B0874YS2N7/

Samsung T5 1TB $144.99: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B073H552FJ/

The T7 touch versions are on sale as well for $109.99, but I find the non touch version a better deal.

great deal for the 500gb. I've had it for a while now (6 months maybe), and its super fast. I've had some problems using it between iPad then PC, but nothing major tho.

Is the internal drive a SATA (non NVME) mSATA?

I have Surface Pro 3 with a dead SSD and was wondering if this drive would work

Be careful... those SP3/SP4 devices are very finicky when you take them apart and have a good chance of bricking them.

True, looks like the t7 is soldered instead.

Yeah, thanks, the screen is damaged so it's of no use. Want to fix it and connect it to a monitor or tv.

This or an NVME like the SN750 in an external enclosure for file storage? Which one would have better longevity? This one claims 2880TBW vs 300TBW of the SN750, does this translate to real world use?

Where did you get this information?

SAMSUNG portable SSDs do not have a TBW rating
https://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/m ... /warranty/

The 870 QVO 8TB has a 2,880 TB TBW
https://news.samsung.com/us/samsung-ind ... d-870-qvo/

TBW should not matter unless you are constantly erasing and writing to the SSD, not a real world usage scenario.

Is this over kill for backing up pictures?! Or spot on?

We have lots, so we are looking for an external hard drive to back everything on.

What's the difference between Seagate, western digital, Samsung, Scan disk ect?

I see there are a lot of other 1tb for around $70ish.

Yup, performance SSD drives are probably overkill for just backing up photos. I use a 256GB USB flash drive for backing photos up and would suggest that instead, much smaller and you can get 1 for under $40.

Why are there more low reviews for the T7 versus rhe T5 especially those ssying it runs too hot, keep the T5 or it isn't as good as the T5 for gsming?

I'm not in beta for the PS5 yet, so won't buy a NVME m.2 ssd PCIE 4.0 drive yet. But I also have found I need better than the HDD hooked up to my Series X and PS5 for load times.

I'd buy a 2TB T5 for below $200 in a heartbeat such as the earlier this year MS Store deal, or the 2TB T7 if its below $300. But they don't really go down at that size. I figure we are months away or possibly another year for them allowing the M.2 ssd drive to all users, not beta in PS5. So maybe better to wait and then just splurge on a 2tb 2280 stick with a heatsink that fits?
