Amazon offers the Western Digital 256GB My Passport Portable Solid-State Drive for $69.99 shipped. Also at B&H. That’s down $30 from the regular going rate and a new Amazon all-time low. With fast transfer speeds up to 540MB/s, this portable SSD is great for backing up high-resolution content or running Time Machines. It ships with a three-year warranty and works with both USB-C and A ports. Rated 4.4/5 stars.

Save some more cash and ditch the SSD speeds with a 1TB portable hard drive from Toshiba at $45. This is an easy way to pick up some extra storage for your needs, whether it’s simple document backup or adding more space to your gaming console.
