Update: Amazon has now dropped the WD 2TB My Passport Portable SSD down to $149.99 shipped alongside the 1TB deal below. Regularly up to $185 or more at Amazon over the last several months, this marks the first time it has returned to the all-time in most colorways. Outside of the larger capacity, the rest of the specs are the same as the model detailed below.
Alongside today’s Samsung storage sale, Amazon is now offering the WD 1TB My Passport Solid-State Drive for $89.99 shipped. This one regularly sells for $155 at Best Buy where it is currently marked down to $95. However, these days it carries a regular price of $106 directly from Western Digital and is now matching Amazon. We have seen it drop to $80 in limited coupon offers at Newegg, but today’s offer is matching the lowest we have tracked at Amazon for the grey colorway and is on par with the November deal last year. This model moves data at up to 1,050MB/s – it is also $20 under the price of the popular SanDisk 1TB Extreme variant for comparison – with USB-C connectivity as well as support for USB 3.2 Gen2. All of this is set within a shock- and vibration-resistant housing that can withstand drops up to 6.5-feet alongside the usual password-enabled 256-bit AES hardware encryption setup.

Amazon is also offering a solid deal on the Crucial X8 1TB Portable SSD at $76.99 shipped. This one sold for between $80 and $110 for most of last year before dropping into the $80 range over the last few months. Today’s deal is another $4 off and one of the lowest prices we have tracked. It also delivers a very similar feature set as the WD option including the up to 1,050MB/s transfer rates USB-C connectivity, and an anodized aluminum unibody core.
As we mentioned above, Amazon launched a notable Samsung storage sale this morning with solid deals on portable SSDs, microSD cards, and more. The deals start from just $14 Prime shipped and deliver some of the best prices we have tracked on its latest-model memory cards as well as the T7 Shield portable SSD we reviewed last year on launch day.
