Amazon has now knocked the price on the popular SanDisk 1TB Extreme Portable Solid-State Drive down to $99.99 shipped. While typically fetching $155 at Best Buy where it is now on sale for $111, today’s deal is matching the Amazon holiday price from last year and only the second time we have seen it down this low there. While it does carry a regular price of $116 directly from Western Digital these days and dropped to $95 for a brief time in December via B&H, today’s deal is still the lowest around and quite a notable offer on one of the most notable portable SSDs out there. Sitting atop our roundup of the best portable models, this one delivers a solid build with 2-meter drop protection and IP55 dust/water resistance. That’s alongside USB 3.2 Gen 2 support and an NVMe-based SSD that can move data at up to 1,050MB/s with convenient USB-C connectivity and a carabiner loop. More details below.
Today’s lead deals puts the popular SanDisk 1TB Extreme Portable model at the same price as the comparable but even faster Kingston XS2000 1TB variant. But you can save even more by going with the Crucial X8 1TB Portable SSD that’s now selling for $80 shipped on Amazon. This one delivers the same speeds alongside USB-C connectivity, but isn’t quite as robust in terms of the external housing. Having said that, if you don’t plan on getting overly adventurous, it is certainly worth consideration at this price.
