Amazon is now offering the SanDisk 500GB Extreme Portable Solid-State Drive for $84.99 shipped. Also matched at Best Buy. Regularly up to $140 at Best Buy, this one has sold for around $95 at Amazon recently and is now matching the all-time low there. Unlike some of the portable SSDs in this price range, this one boats particularly fast transfers with up to 1050MB/s read and 1000MB/s write speeds. This model is quite heavy-duty with a 2-meter drop protection, IP55 water- and dust resistance, and the “durable” silicon shell “that offers a premium feel and added protection to the drive’s exterior.” SanDisk also ships it with a carabiner clip, USB-C/A cable, and a 5-year limited manufacturer warranty. Rated 4+ stars from over 26,800 Amazon customers. More details below.
A more affordable solution that offers nearly the same transfer speeds is the Samsung 500GB T7 Portable SSD. It sells for $80 at Amazon, can also hit up to 1050MB/s, and carries great ratings from over 7,800 Amazon customers.
However, if you don’t need the absolute fastest transfers out there, Seagate’s Ultra Touch USB-C SSDs are a great option. The fabric-wrapped exterior looks great, they carry solid ratings, and are now on sale starting from $70 right here.
