Amazon is now offering the SanDisk Professional 4TB G-Drive Solid-State Drive for $499.99 shipped. Regularly $680, it more recently has been in the $600 range leaving you with at least $100 in savings. This is also the lowest price we have tracked on Amazon outside of a one day offer months ago at $20 less. Having used the 2TB version of this model for quite sometime to store Logic Pro and video editing assets with flawless performance, I can certainly attest to its reliability. It delivers 1,050MB/s transfers rates with USB-C connectivity and support for USB 3.2 Gen 2. This model also features 2000-pound crush resistance in case it finds its way under your back tire, a 3M drop protection, and IP67 water/dust resistance (it is “tested to withstand immersion in water up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes.” More details below.
As per usual, if you don’t need the 4TB for your content creation or backup needs, score the 1TB model at $160 instead. It delivers the same features just with less storage space. Having said that, it might also be worth considering the now $134 SanDisk 1TB Extreme Portable SSD with a very similar spec sheet.
