Amazon is now offering the SanDisk 1TB Extreme Portable USB-C SSD for $149.99 shipped. Matched as part of Best Buy’s Deals of the Day. Originally $250 and still regularly fetching $240 at Best Buy, this model has sold for between $160 and $170 at Amazon over the last several months and is now at the best price we can find. This is matching the 2021 low and within $10 of the Amazon all-time best price. This SanDisk Extreme portable SSD boasts some serious transfers speeds at up to 1050MB/s. Wrapped in a “durable silicon shell” for added peace of mind, this model is rated for up to 2-meters of drop protection, IP55 water- and dust-resistance, 256‐bit AES hardware encryption, and USB-C connectivity alongside a USB-A adapter. It carries a 4+ star rating from over 34,000 Amazon customers and ships with a 5-year warranty. More details below.
For an alternative with a similar speed rating for less, check out out the $144.50 WD 1TB My Passport SSD External Portable Solid State Drive. But for something even more affordable, consider the Seagate One Touch SSD 1TB External SSD at $135. This one isn’t quite as speedy as today’s lead deal, but it will get the job done with a nice fabric-wrapped exterior and solid 4+ star ratings from over 2,100 Amazon customers.
