Amazon is offering the SanDisk 2TB Extreme Portable External SSD for $249.99 shipped. Also at Best Buy, Adorama, B&H, and Walmart. This is down from its $450 list price these days, around $300 going rate at Amazon, and is a match for its all-time low there. Whether you’re an on-the-go video editor or just someone who wants to bring extra storage along for documents, photos, and movies, this drive does it all. Sporting a USB-C connection, it plugs into Apple’s latest laptop and iPad without a problem. Plus, it sports up to 550MB/s transfer speeds, which makes moving data a breeze. Rated 4.6/5 stars.

If having the bonus speed and USB-C connection isn’t crucial to you, WD’s 2TB Elements USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive is just $60 shipped on Amazon. The main downside here is that it’s a spinning drive instead of an SSD, so you’ll lose out on some reliability and speed. However, at over 75% of the cost of the SanDisk above, this is a much more budget-friendly option.
For a more desktop-oriented storage experience, WD’s 6TB USB 3.0 hard drive is a must-have at $100 shipped. This is one of the best prices we’ve tracked all-time and will make for a great experience when backing up via Time Machine from your Mac.
