Amazon is now offering the SanDisk 256GB Ultra Dual Drive Luxe USB-C Flash Drive for $29.49 shipped. Currently $45 at Best Buy and typically fetching between $33 and $38 over the last year at Amazon, this is the lowest price we can find. It is also a new Amazon all-time low. While portable SSDs have gotten small enough to lug around just about anywhere, it’s still not as convenient and worry-free as a far more affordable flash drive. This all-metal option sports a 2-in-1 reversible design so it works with both USB-A and -C ports, which can be great for moving data from a phone to a computer and back (among other things). The up to 150MB/s drive also carries a solid 4+ star rating from over 3,700 Amazon customers. More details below.
You can drop down to the 128GB version at $21 Prime shipped if you don’t need all 256GB or already have a larger solution for those kinds of jobs. But an even more affordable way to score the full 256GB is with this TEAMGROUP model at $20 Prime shipped, just don’t expect to get the reversible and metal design here.
This morning also saw SanDisk’s 1TB Extreme 1050MB/s USB-C SSD drop down to $140 shipped just after we saw the highly-rated SK Hynix internals go on sale from $60. Just make sure you check out CORSAIR’s latest PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSDs and the new Kingston XS2000 drive along with our hands-on review for the new WD Black D30.
