This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Samsung Portable SSD T5 1 TB USB 3.1 External Solid State Drive in Black, plus free delivery for Amazon Prime users.

Lowest price I've seen so far. Used one previously and they are fast and feel well built.

Hot!

Wish the didn’t change the design from the T3!

Hot though.
Great deal!
Great price, great drive
Will an iPad power this without needing power connected. Some of my SSDs and thumb drives will work, some say the accessory needs more power and the iPad needs to be plugged in to power. I have the adapter but it’s a pain to find a power socket on the go sometimes.
I’ve used it on my iPad Pro 11” with USB C
can i use this with my Xbox X?

Yeah my inner voice is telling me to hold out till Black Friday
I have just got myself a MacBook Pro with a measly 256 GB internal SSD. I have been looking at this for storage of my Lightroom catalog and 4K footage from a Fuji XT3. Is this fast enough to edit 4K footage straight from? Or am I better to get a thunderbolt 3 drive? Thanks
Just tried it on iPad Air 2 with camera connector USB adapter and that needed powering so probably only works on iPad Pro with USB C to avoid external power

I highly doubt you will get a better price on BF......These items are very selective and rarely come on offer on Amazon . I think you will be sorely disappointing...come BF ...when the price of this is 40% more.
Good Luck!

Ah you convinced me, I had a 500gb Sandisk internal ssd that I used with my Xbox but it packed up 12 months later. Luckily amazon refunded me. Here is hoping this lasts longer

I`am soooooooooooooooo Jealous Mate! .... Dam Good decision and I am 100% sure you made the Right! call.
I really should also Grab this ATM ...But honestly I have quite a few of the portable SSD drives now (Granted not of the Samsung T5 superior Quality and performance) and adding another will just add to my hoards that rarely use their full potential.
I am still Extremely Jealous thou. Hope you enjoy. I am sure you will.

PS: If by any small chance that the Drive is cheaper of BF? Then you can always return (free on Amazon via performance not adequate tab )your exiting purchase and Buy at the cheaper BF alternative.

Best Regards,

My understanding is that the usb 3.0 is faster than the internal sata on the Xbox and one x

Buy now, buy again at BF IF there's a price cut, return the unopened one in place of the more expensive one. You have 30 days from now to start a return. Reasons for return might be 'damaged outer box' no good for a present.

They're likely to be a quarter of the price or less in 5 years.

Just confirming this. If you want to use with a Mac, and enable password protection, you currently can’t, 9 months after the latest OS was beta released.

You want the older 1.6.2 version of the software IIRC. Or you can connect to a Windows machine, turn this off, carry on with the Mac.

Personally I never ever use any of the software provided by drive manufacturers. You're just asking for a proprietary nightmare. These Samsung SSDs contain an SATA drive so you can salvage it if the enclosure's PCB fails, but not if you're using their software.

Yes, it’s only mechanical hard drives that would need an external power source for an iPad. SSD can be powered from the device alone. Only an iPad Pro with USBC can power a harddrive and transfer data simultaneously.

My iPad 10.5 pro can’t power some flash drives which is why I’m asking. I have three flash drives - 2 it can power and 1 says the device needs too much power.
Samsung have an offer on this SSD to pick a game from their list (not bad games) does this Amazon offer provide this?

Like thumb drives? If so that's really bizarre because they use a negligible amount of power so it must be some sort of incompatibility.

Anyway, I have a few of the 2TB T5s and they don't need additional power with a 2018 12.9" Pro. Nor do any portable HDDs I've used. It provides 7.5W of power which is more than any require at peak.

It is but earlier iPads still deliver more than enough for devices that intended to be bus powered.

Could be the adaptor if you're using one?

I would think that but it works okay with other thumb drives. It’s the official camera kit. Not really that fussed as I have a decent workflow in place which does the job. I don’t have any external SSDs at all but might have a punt on one soon.

Yes. You only need their software to encrypt it.
For anyone wondering about how good this is: I’ve just transferred 56GB of photos (8000+ files) in under 4 minutes...
