The Samsung T7 1TB portable solid state drive has dropped to a new low price of $109.99 at Amazon just in time for Black Friday. The 1TB SSD normally goes for around $150, and has been selling at that price or higher for most of the year. It’s only in recent months that it has started to drop below that, and today’s deal is the lowest it has ever gone. Get the same price in Black, Red, or Blue.
The other versions of the T7 are also on sale. Get the 500GB drive for $79.99 in blue or black or the 2TB version for $249.99 in blue. These are great prices, but they have been active for a couple weeks since we first shared them. The 1TB drop is new.
You could also save on the T7 Touch, which is a more advanced version with a fingerprint sensor and an LED indicator for added security and peace of mind. The 1TB T7 Touch is down to $149.99 from a street price of $180.

When we reviewed the Samsung T7 last October, we gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 and a Recommended badge. Richard Devine said, “The real benefit to the T7 is its size… it weighs only 58g and literally fits inside any pocket. It’s beyond convenient to carry about, and it’s also plenty tough enough.”
In addition to the 1TB capacity, you get read and write speeds of up to 1,050 MB/s and 1,000 MB/s respectively. Compared to the previous-generation T5 portable SSD that’s nearly double the speeds. Maximize the speeds you get by using the T7 with a USB-C 3.2 Gen 2 port, otherwise it might not quite be that fast. The SSD is still backwards compatible with older ports, and the reliability stays solid no matter what.
When it comes to durability, you’ll find the T7 is shock and drop resistant. It can bounce around in your backpack or purse with no issues. You can take it with you anywhere you go. It also has a dynamic thermal guard that helps keep it cool and protects your data while it’s in use.
You’ll get both a USB-C to USB-C cable and a USB-C to USB-A cable so you can make this SSD work with a variety of ports.
