PNY Turbo 256GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive: $70 shipped (50% off) 128GB: $35, 64GB: $20


Update: MacMall still has the 256GB for $70 deal but Amazon is over

Amazon offers the PNY 246GB USB 3.0 Flash drive for $69.99 shipped. That’s almost half off of list and the lowest price we’ve seen on this Flash drive that is bigger and faster than many hard drive/SSD solutions. PNY gets an impressive 4.3/5 star reviews and features:

  • Transfer speeds approximately 10 times faster than standard PNY USB 2.0 Flash Drives
  • Store and transfer large files faster than ever with USB 3.0 technology
  • Allows for quick and easy transfer of all content
  • Transfer one movie in 13 seconds with a Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive vs. 5 minutes with a standard USB 2.0 Flash Drive
  • The 256GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive can hold approximately 47,349 songs
  • Backwards compatible with USB 2.0 ports, so you can utilize any USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 port; compatible with most PC and Mac laptop and desktop computers
  • Free technical support
  • Sliding collar, capless design with integrated loop makes it easy to attach to key chains, backpacks and etc.

While this could make a great stocking-stuffer, it also could serve as a backup drive for a MacBook Air or a huge Sneaker-net drive for the house. I personally like filling these things up with music and attaching it to my car’s USB so I pretty much have my whole collection with me on the road.

Don’t need quite as much? Get a 128GB version for exactly half price or 64GB for $19.99 or 32GB for $12.99 Read more
