TarDisk is offering 15% off exclusively to 9to5Toys readers today on itsTarDisk Pear solid-state expansion drive product for MacBook. This isn’t an SD card, instead it uses TarDisk’s software to create a fusion drive with your internal storage, meaning it will act as a permanent storage upgrade instead of like an SD card or thumb drive (full review).
With the 15% off, you can take $59.85 off the regular $399 price of the 256GB model, or $22.35 off the $149 regular price for the 128GB model.
The product comes available in models compatible with the 13 and 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina, the 13-inch MacBook Air, and the 13 and 15-inch MacBook Pro.
We reviewed the product on our sister site 9to5Mac late last year and noted tat the time that it proved to be one the easiest overall solutions for quickly increasing a MacBook’s storage without the downsides of using a standard external drive, SD card, or thumb drive product:
You shouldn’t have to think about TarDisk much after installing it. The idea is that it merges with your internal drive so you can use it as if you have just upgraded your internal drive, and I found the process went smoothly. In my month-long test I didn’t run into any issues with my upgraded storage, and I didn’t find a noticeable difference in performance overall on the original, 2012 Retina MacBook Pro I tested it on.
The deal will last until May 5th, 2016.
