We love the Samsung T7 Shield for its performance, even if it’s been surpassed in raw speed by other portable SSDs. And right now, Amazon’s dropped the price on the 4TB model by a whopping 50 percent—its Black Friday week price is just $200.
We last saw this price about a month ago during Amazon’s October Prime Day sale, and it’s just as solid of a deal now. If you don’t need quite as much space, the 2TB and 1TB versions ($120 and $80, respectively) are also on sale, but not as deeply discounted as before. That could change later this week, though—guess we’ll see!
With an IP65 rating, the Samsung T7 Shield stands up better against water spray and particulates compared to the standard T7 model, as well as its rivals. So, while you can find faster options (like the Crucial X9 Pro, our current best pick overall for external SSDs), this is a better choice if you work out in the field.
If you like this hot deal, don’t wait too long. Deals like these can sometimes end before Black Friday officially arrives. You can also check out the other SSD and storage deals happening now (including internal drives) in our roundup of the best Black Friday SSD and storage deals.
