I don't know about you, but by the end of the year my devices are starting to collapse due to the amount of files I failed to get round to backing up over the past 12 months. It's time to sort things out before work get back into full swing in January. Inevitably, that means getting more storage space, but happily there are some huge New Year portable SSD deals about right now.

The best January sale SSD deals see the tough Samsung T7 Shield 2TB SSD reduced from $289.99 to $183.84, a saving of over $100. This external SSD has a rugged design and provide transfer speeds of up to 1050MB/s – not the fastest, but 2TB of storage from a reliable brand for under $200 is an absolute bargain.
