  • Great price for the T7

  • Will officeworks price match Amazon.com.au? Good find!

  • Thanks OP, bought one. Cash back I think is 5% for electronics @ ShopBack atm if I read correctly.

  • AU stock sells at $194.15 if someone need urgently.

    • Do you think there's any difference in product between UK & AU stock?

      • you have to pay to return item to UK with change of mind (postage), and apparently you have to pay to return if there's something wrong with it, but you ask them for a refund after it's returned

        • That’s not the case in my experience, I have been able to return amazon stuff shipped from uk and USA to an Australian address.

          • @hashtagbargain: Strange, I ordered a smart lock from Amazon US one time and had to return it all the way to the US. Cost like $55 in postage. At least they refund the postage if it's faulty.

        • I returned a Wera toolkit to Amazon UK only a few weeks ago. I had to pay for the shipping but Amazon gave me that amount as credit when I sent them a scan of the postage receipt.

  • Whats the go these days? This vs NVME SSD + enclosure?

      Unlike T5 this T7 has integrated memory and USB bridge chips on a single board.
      I'd definitely go for NVMe SSD + enclosure as one can choose or reuse M.2 SSD elsewhere.

    • The T7 is a good drive. Your getting upto 10Gbps(1250MB/s) of the maximum afforded by the USB 3.2 Gen2 specs for read/write speeds.

      Performance may vary depending on host configuration. To reach maximum read/write speeds of up to 1,050/1,000 MB/s respectively, the host device and connection cables must support USB 3.2Gen 2 and the UASP mode must be enabled

      So your motherboard has to have a port that supports this or at least have an expansion card that does.

      Going the NVME SSD + enclosure path is good if your going for faster speeds or it costs cheaper. For eg. say a Samsung Evo 1TB or greater with a USB 3.2 gen2x2 enclosure and once again a motherboard with a port that supports this or at least have an expansion card that does.

      AnandTech USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 State of the Ecosystem Review

      SuperSpeed USB for USB 3.2 Gen 1 ( 5Gbps )
      SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps for USB 3.2 Gen 2
      SuperSpeed USB 20Gbps for USB 3.2 Gen 2x2

      Personally I'd go with the cheaper option or slower speeds and take a leak whilst it's copying (general backups or file copying not drive cloning, etc - less than < 200GB). It should be done by the time you get back and we all know everyone buys next years deals anyway :)

  • Thanks mate. Got it from OW for $184.44 ( $194.15 Amazon AU pricebeat). I tried to pricebeat on $186.29 but they were not ready to do it on Amazon UK

  • Price matched at Officeworks Hobart, but they wouldn't accept the UK price from Amazon.com.au and instead said I need to use the price advertised here : https://www.amazon.com.au/Samsung-USB3-2-Aluminium-Portable-...

    So AU$194.15 + 5% less = AU$184.44

    Couldn't be bothered trying for the additional $10 or so bucks off. They had already spent quite some time finding reasons to tell me they can't honour it because the product advertised is the US product and they stock the World Wide / Aus model. To which I pointed out the product model number is exactly the same, and the warranty is exactly the same, and shipping is free.

    They we pretty reasonable to deal with but it took some time going back and forth showing details from the listing to prove that the product is the same.

    Happy with the price regardless of paying a bit more.

  • Paid with 3% off discount amazon gc. A lot less hassle than going to ow and begging for price match. I’ll live with 2% difference.

  • Just grabbed the last one price matched at Officeworks Glebe in Sydney, a bit of hassle but they matched the amazon price + shipping to $185.13. Probably not worth the time but I wanted it today!

  • No problem price matching at JB + shipping. The store rep wouldn’t budge taking shipping cost off even when I showed her the free shipping for orders over $39.

  • Great price for a good ssd, would definitely picked it up for my PS5 as external drive if I had some spare cash!

  • at the rate Samsung poops out these T models, I might wait 2 months for a T10.
