[Amazon.ca] Samsung T7 Portable SSD 500G - $105 (warehouse deal)

Just bought this for $100 from Amazon warehouse deals. There are still some warehouse deals left for $105 ! This is not new, the condition is:
Item will come repackaged. Minor cosmetic imperfection on top, front or sides of item.
After navigating to the link, you'll need to click on "New & Used (5) from CDN$ 104.89" to get the warehouse deal

The pictures seems to suggest that its just a 2.5" SSD slapped into a external enclosure... Why not buy a 860 EVO 500GB right now for $74.99 on Amazon and then add an external case for $15? Saves $10 and the 860 EVO has 5 years warranty vs the T7's 3 years warranty.

warehouse products don't have warranty either making t7 even worse of a deal

Are there $15 m.2 cases that can do 10Gbps speeds and keep the drive temp below fire?

The $74.99 860 EVO is a 2.5" SATA drive, it is not M.2 NVMe.

There's still a significant speed difference.

No there's another. You just have to click to few the used ones. I just bought one of these used on eBay for 99.99. Hoping that works out lol

The prices of SSDs are falling and the tech is quickly democratizing which is good news to consumers. The current trend I've noticed right now is that these external SSDs are generally going for $105 - $110 on sale for 500 GB and about $50 - $60 more for 1 TB on sale...
Why settle for MSRP when you can wait and get it at a lower price? 😉

Thanks for the tip. I ended up doing exactly this.

Not the same, pretty tiny compared to a 2.5" in an enclosure.

It uses a pcie nvme. It's actually smaller than a 2.5" drive, about the size of credit card.
