Samsung T3

If you’re after a large capacity portable drive for backing up your photos, videos, music and other precious data, the Samsung T3 is a great choice. However, a traditional hard drive is still much, much cheaper if speed isn’t your main priority.

Samsung SSD 750 EVO

Samsung’s 750 EVO is the cream of the TLC-based SSD crop. It costs a bit more than the competition, but to my mind, the smooth performance is worth the extra dough. Especially as RAPID can give your computer a feel that’s otherwise only achievable with...
