Available in black, blue or grey colours, the Samsung T5 500GB SSD is an attractive little device. And at 5.70 x 1.00 x 7.40cm it’s compact enough to pop in your pocket or a slip into a laptop bag, say if you need to transfer large files from a work desktop to a machine you have at home. 

External SSDs are also useful to save media to, and you can then plug them into modern smart TVs to then play back saved movies or videos on a big screen. 

Normally, such 500GB SSDs can cost over £150, but the Samsung T5’s price has been slashed by £89 making it a bargain for anyone that’s been holding out for an affordable SSD.
