Amazon just knocked the SanDisk 2TB Extreme PRO Portable Solid-State Drive down to $199.99 shipped. Originally $380, this model has been creeping down in price over the last year or so and has regular sold for between $220 and $280 over the last several months at Amazon. These days it fetches a regular price of $264 directly from Western Digital and has now dropped to the lowest price we have tracked on Amazon for just the second time. Easily one of the better models out there in its class and favorite of ours, it delivers up to 2,000MB/s transfer speeds, modern USB-C connectivity, and support for USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 gear. The high-quality build is evident the second you remove it from the packaging, while a forged aluminum chassis acts as a heatsink of sorts to “deliver higher sustained speeds in a portable drive that’s tough enough to take on any adventure.” Get a closer look at the details right here and head below for more.
