Save some cash when opting instead for the SanDisk 512GB Ultra Dual Drive Go. Designed as a dual USB-C/A flash drive with 512GB of storage, you’ll be getting a similar amount of total space in a more compact form-factor. However, the lower cost of $53 comes with the drawback of slower transfer speeds. SanDisk’s Ultra Dual Drive Go moves data at a maximum of 150MB/s, which is less than 10% of the speed that you’ll find in today’s lead deal.

For internal storage, don’t forget that Seagate’s PS5-ready FireCuda 530 PCIe Gen4 SSD is currently on sale from $120. With speeds of up to 7,300MB/s, this drive also works with PCs that are compatible with Gen4 drives, making it a versatile buy overall.
