Amazon is now offering the WD 500GB My Passport USB-C External Portable Solid State Drive for $79.99 shipped. Also matched as part of Best Buy’s Deals of the Day. Regularly up to $130 at Best Buy, this one is regularly $120 at B&H, where it is currently on sale for $90, and is now matching the Amazon all-time low. Featuring “blazing fast NVMe technology” with speeds up to 1050MB/s, this is a great little SSD for storing photos, backups, and just as your daily portable storage device. Other features include 256-bit AES hardware encryption, shock-, vibration, and drop-resistance (to 6.5-feet), as well as the USB-C connection. Rated 4+ stars from nearly 900 Amazon customers and ships with a 5-year warranty. More details below.
Today’s deal puts the 500GB WD My Passport SSD down at the same price as SanDisk’s popular previous-generation model, but you can save slightly more with the Seagate One Touch SSD 500GB External Solid State Drive. This one isn’t quite as fast and you’re trading the USB-C jack out for a USB-A variant, but it will save you slightly more than the lead deal and might be a better option for folks without a USB-C-only desktop/laptop.
Be sure to dive into these ongoing deals on WD’s My Cloud Pro NAS systems with up to $300 in savings. Then check out some of the latest releases in the SSD game including CORSAIR’s latest NVMe SSDs, the Synology 25GbE NIC, Western Digital’s all-new 4TB portable SSDs, and Kingston’s expanded lineup as well.
