Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today's list is led by a deal on Samsung's T5 portable solid-state drive, with the 500GB version now up for $128 on Amazon. The speedy SSD has typically gone in the $150-170 range for most of the year; this deal price is a new low.

Not everyone needs something like this, but backing up your data is always a good idea, and a portable hard drive makes it easy to transport that data on the go. A portable SSD is more durable, compact, and much faster than a portable HDD, but they typically come at a significant price premium. This deal price, however, brings things closer to genuine parity.

The T5 here comes with USB-C to C and USB-C to A cables, a three-year warranty, and 256-bit hardware encryption. Samsung advertises read speeds of up to 540MB/s and write speeds of 515MB/s; just know you'll need to a device with USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports to get close to that. Provided your device isn't that old, though, it should be fast either way.

If you're not in need of a portable drive, we also have deals on Dell laptops, Bluetooth headphones, the Roku Ultra, and much more. Have a look for yourself below.
