Amazon is currently offering the LaCie Rugged 500GB Portable USB-C Solid State Drive for $129.99 shipped. Usually selling for $180, today’s offer is good for a $50 discount and matches the all-time low set only once before. Housed within LaCie’s signature rugged, orange housing, its portable SSD is based around a Seagate FireCuda NVMe drive. It sports an IP67-waterproof rating, giving the SSD a 3-meter drop tolerance, as well as 2-ton crush resistance. Thanks to USB-C connectivity, you’re looking at upwards of 950MB/s transfer speeds and the ability to ditch a dongle when pairing with your Mac or iPad. Rated 4.2/5 stars from 530 customers and you can learn more in our launch coverage.
Update 2/19 @ 2:48pm: We’ve now spotted the Seagate 2TB FireCuda Internal SSHD for $59.99 shipped at Amazon. That’s $25 off the recent pricing there and is a match for the lowest price we have tracked. Rated 4.5/5 stars.
Ditch the SSD functionality and bring home a larger capacity drive instead by going with LaCie’s Rugged USB-C 2TB Portable Hard Drive. It will run you $100 at Amazon right now, offering some notable savings compared to the featured solid state option.
The aforementioned LaCie offer isn’t the only storage discount we tracked today. Earlier we spotted Lexar’s Fingerprint Flash Drives on sale starting at $28. These USB 3.0 drives include a built-in fingerprint scanner, 256-bit encryption, and a 3-year warranty.
