Amazon is now offering the SanDisk 1TB Extreme Portable Solid-State Drive for $129.99 shipped. Regularly fetching $240 at Best Buy where it is now matching for Memorial Day, this is the lowest price we have tracked on Amazon since a brief $129 offer back in January, $3 under our previous mention, and the best we can find. Delivering a best-in-class portable SSD experience, the SanDisk Extreme lineup is one of the most popular options out there and this is easily among the most practical models in the lineup for most folks. Delivering up to 1,050MB/s and a rugged, rubberized shell it can take a beating and connects with just about all of your gear over USB-C or USB-A. It might not be capable of the 2,000MB/s speeds of the pro model we reviewed earlier this year, but it’s also well under the $190 price tag that one fetches and is more than fast enough for most users.
