This fast, portable solid state drive has never sold for less.

This sleek solid state drive features Thunderbolt 3 technology for super-fast transfer speeds up to 40GB/s. With read speeds up to 2,800MB/s and write speeds up to 2,300MB/s, the Samsung X5 won't slow you down. The metal body is smooth, but there's a non-slip bottom to ensure the drive stays put. It also features optional encrypted password protection, as well as a shock-resistant internal frame that helps the drive withstand drops or tumbles. You might want to pick up a carrying case (opens in new tab) with your purchase for an extra layer of protection.
