      Big difference between portable & desktop tho.

    That's still a lot of money for 500GB…

      Hard to get a 500GB NVMe SSD and USB3 enclosure for $111.

      • +4 votes

        wrong, nvme enclosure 10GBs usually $25 + crucial P1/P2/P3 ~$80, still cheaper than this.

          You won't get the same quality and speed from $25 nvme enclosure.

            @jimojr: quality - not sure
            speed - doubt.

            Both get bottleneck from USB 3

          10gbps USB-C nvme enclosure are around $50 (simplecom brand) & grab a Kingston a2000 500gb for around $120.

          The T7 is a pretty good deal for $111.

          Would you be able to recommend NVME enclosure for that price. Bought a couple with incorrect specification from amazon and ebay, and turned out NGFF SATA. Had to return. Could just be my bad luck.

            @sudiph: You can search for orico m2pv-c3 on ebay, around $30. I used this one before and notice no different with the asus arion in term of speed. Nvme ssd is quite hot when operated, so remember to use the provided thermal pad.

    Great prices, but ring your local store before heading out.

    Several times I seen a super deal on items at OW but walked out empty handed.

    One time a worker was updating the new tag for the crazy low price on an item, I thought it was a sure thing, but when I got to the counter they had no stock, the staff were updating empty display packages.

    They have a habit of marking down clearance items they don't have

    •  

      that's not cool.

      Yes, this is frustrating. I bought the last few clearance LIFX lights recently at my local. Went back and they had more boxes out, cool! Took to counter, nope, they have no stock. I tell them there's still more display boxes on the floor, they thank me. I had to go back a few days later, all the display boxes, including the ones I took up, with the clearance sticker, were back on the shelf. So annoying.

    Thanks OP, went to Chirnside Park Officeworks and bought the 4TB portable hard for $89.5

    •  

      wait what? I guess that was a store specific price

  •  

    I don't know how it measures up, but I bought a Samsung 500GB Portable Solid State Drive T5 for $89 at OW a couple of weeks ago.
    However, I don't know the difference between a T5 and T7.

    I'm using it to mirror the 500GB SSD in my tower and it seems fine.

    My local store (Windsor Gardens, SA) is showing stock.

      Inside T5 is a sata ssd (~500MBs seq read/write), T7 is a nvme one (1000MBs read/write)

      •  

        Thanks.

        I have a CRUCIAL P1 500GB M.2 PCIE NVME SSD in my new tower, so maybe I need to get a T7 portable SSD to mirror it?

          Buy a 2tb external hard drive and install veeam backup agent free onto your machine. First backup will take a little bit of time but then all the rest are small & can run on a daily schedule.

          When you first install it and it runs the media creation wizard pick the hard drive to create the recovery media and it will format the drive and make a small partition for the recovery boot disk and use the rest of the drive as a second partition for computer backups & whatever other files you want to store on it.

        Yep msata form factor sata SSD in the T5. When using mine with Marcum reflect I imaged out a few MSI AIO PCs over USB-C and it restored to them at 1.2GB/s read speed so they took under 5min each to restore.

        It's actually really hard to find msata ssds for sale these days as the form factor was rather short lived. Last year I had to replace the SSD in 2 laptops that had msata so ended up buying 2 of the T5 and opening the casing then slapping those in the laptops. Works great.

      Depends on what you are using it for. From memory there is minimal to no difference when using with a PS5.

    Same clearance price for the T7 in store at Melbourne CBD OW.

      Which one? I've called a few and none of them have it at this price.

    Thanks OP. Now I am over 200 AUD short. Got a 4tb seagate(@102) and a T7 Touch(@129).

  •  

    Are these store specific… Walked into my nearest OW, but they had then lodged for $172 😔

  •  

    The grey version of T7 is cheaper. I got it for $94.60 this morning.

    •  

      from officeworks?

      •  

        Yes

    Clearing out at the Braddon store as well. Had a few left yesterday.
