Update: Amazon has now knocked the SanDisk Professional 1TB PRO-G40 SSD down to a new $249.99 shipped all-time low. Regularly $300, this is $50 off, the lowest price we have tracked, a new Amazon all-time low, and the best we can find. Details and specs are as follows. 

Amazon is now offering the SanDisk Professional 2TB PRO-G40 Thunderbolt Solid-State Drive for $379.99 shipped. This model released for the first time back in October at $450 as the latest in SanDisk’s professional lineup. After seeing its very first price drop to $400 at the top of the year, it has now fallen to a new Amazon all-time low at $70 off the going rate. The 1TB is also still at the best price we have tracked at $279.99 shipped. Delivering notable 2,700MB/s transfer rates, the PRO-G40 features dual mode Thunderbolt 3 (40Gb/s) and USB-C (10Gb/s) connectivity we just recently put to the test. It also sports a cool aluminum core to act as a sort of heatsink during longer transfers alongside a rugged build with a metal and rubberized shell, IP68 dust/water resistance, 4000-pound crush resistance, and 3-meter drop resistance.

You’re certainly paying a premium for one of SanDisk’s fastest portable solid-state solutions to date up above – you can land a 4TB model of the popular SanDisk USB 3.2 Gen 2 Extreme variant on sale for $320 right now. But for something even more affordable, the perfectly capable Kingston XS2000 2,000MB/s 1TB Portable SSD is a notable option that’s nearly as fast and currently sitting at the Amazon all-time low of $100

Dropping down even lower than that, you can also land Lexar’s 512GB 2,000MB/s RGB option on sale for $76.50 shipped. This is another Amazon all-time low that delivers the best price we have tracked on the metal sandblasted gaming storage device – also works with any other kind of file – alongside built-in lighting and notable speeds.
