So fast it'll blow your mind.
Samsung's X5 SSD in 500GB capacity is down to a new all-time low price at Amazon at $247.99. The X5 has only been on the market for a few months, but this super-fast storage device has been selling for $300 in since November before dropping to $250 earlier this month. Today's drop marks its lowest price ever. Considering it was $400 at launch, today is certainly the best day to pick one up.
Portable SSDs have always been appealing because hard drives, even great ones like the Seagate Backup Plus Slim, are slower and far more vulnerable thanks to all the moving parts. Solid State Drives have no moving parts. Unfortunately, they are also usually a lot more expensive. Samsung's T5 lineup of portable SSDs have been one of the most successful consumer-level portable SSDs around and they still run a lot more than your average portable hard drive.
