Now’s a great time to stock up on microSD cards for your phone or console, or new flash drives for all your most important files. A new Amazon sale brought up 67 percent off Samsung storage, including some of our favorites. The latest model in the company’s T7 series of drives, the T7 Shield, has dropped to a new record low of $90 for the 1TB model, plus you can get a Samsung 980 Pro SSD with a 1TB capacity for just $120 or a 256GB EVO Select memory card. Adapter Plus is set for only $24.

Samsung’s T7 family of portable SSDs has been one of our favorites for quite some time thanks to its generally fast read/write speeds and its pocket-friendly design. All T7 drives fit easily in your back pocket or a stuffed travel bag, making it one of the best options for professionals who travel a lot and need extra space to store important documents and files. The T7 Shield is the latest addition to the series, and besides being IP65 water and dust resistant, it has a more rugged exterior that helps it survive drops nearly 10 feet high. When it comes to performance, it supports read/write speeds of 1050/1000MB/s and the Dynamic Thermal Guard controls heat to help maintain performance even when the drive is pushed to its limits.
If you’re finally heading to expand the storage space available on your PS5, Samsung’s 980 Pro internal drive is a good option, especially at this selling price. It supports read speeds of up to 7000MB/s and uses nickel plating to control heat levels for improved efficiency. You’ll need a heatsink in order to use this drive with the PS5, however, if you want to keep things simple, you can get the $150 bundle that includes the Samsung drive.
Any of the microSD cards included in this sale will work well with Nintendo Switch, smartphones, tablets, cameras, and more. We love the 256GB EVO Select model on sale because the discount is so strong (it’s only $4 more than it was during last month’s Prime Early Access Sale) and it comes with a full-size adapter.
