Amazon is now offering the SanDisk 1TB Extreme Portable USB-C Solid-State Drive for $139.99 shipped. Originally $250 and currently fetching $240 at Best Buy, today’s deal is up to $100 off and matching our previous mention. It has, for the most part, sold for between $160 and $170 at Amazon with today’s offer being the lowest price we can find on one of the best portable SSD models out there. Making for a wonderful backup machine or EDC storage device, it can transfer files at up to 1050MB/s with a carabiner-ready loop, USB-C connectivity (USB-A adapter included), and 256‐bit AES hardware encryption. However, this is also quite a heavy-duty drive with a durable silicone exterior alongside IP55 water- and dust-resistance. Rated 4+ stars from hundreds at Best Buy. More details below.
A more affordable solution for your 1TB portable SSD EDC needs falls to the Crucial X8 1TB Portable SSD. While not quite as robust in terms of protection from the elements, it moves data at the same speed as today’s lead deal but for $135 shipped. If you don’t mind dropping down to 500GB, the Samsung T7 also runs at 1050MB/s for $110 shipped.
