SanDisk’s popular 1TB Extreme Portable SSD returns to Black Friday pricing at $100 shipped

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. 

SanDisk’s 160MB/s A2 64GB Extreme microSD card returns to Amazon low at $10.50 (25% off)

Amazon is now offering the SanDisk 64GB Extreme microSDXC UHS-I Memory Card at $10.56 with free shipping for Prime members or in orders over $25. Regularly $15 directly from Western Digital and more like $14 at Amazon, this is the lowest price we can find with at least 25% in savings. Today’s deal is also only the second-time we have seen it down this low on Amazon. For comparison’s sake, you can score the latest model Samsung EVO Plus at slightly less, but it also runs at a slower 130MB/s compared to the 160MB/s on the SanDisk Extreme featured here. On top of that, this model supports 4K UHD content at speed class 30 (V30) alongside an A2 rating for “faster loading and in-app performance” as well as a design that is temperature-, water-, shock-, and x-ray-resistant, according to SanDisk. More details below. 

SanDisk’s latest 2TB PRO-G40 Thunderbolt portable SSD hits new all-time low at $380, more

Reg. $450 From $280

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. Get a complete breakdown of the user experience in our hands-on review and below for more.

SanDisk’s pro-grade 2,000MB/s 1TB Extreme portable SSD returns to holiday price at $130

Joining an ongoing price drop on the 4TB standard edition model, Amazon is now offering the SanDisk 1TB Extreme PRO Portable Solid-State Drive for $129.99 shipped. Regularly $240 at Best Buy where it is now matched, this model more typically sells in the $200 range at Amazon and is now at the lowest price we can find. Today’s deal is essentially matching the holiday and Black Friday price from last year outside of a very brief price drop down to $128. As you’ll know from our hands-on review, the pro-grade SanDisk Extreme delivers much faster transfer rates than the standard counterpart at up to 2,000MB/s. The forged aluminum chassis and robust construction – it is evident how well this thing is built the second you pull it out of the packaging – are highlights here, delivering a sort of portable heatsink-like functionality alongside 2-meter drop protection as well as IP55 water and dust resistance. It ships with a 5-year limited manufacturer warranty and you can get a closer look at the details right here. Head below for more. 

PRO-G40 review: SanDisk’s new 2700MB/s portable Thunderbolt SSD is one of the best, but it’s going to cost you

It’s time to take a closer look at the new SanDisk portable SSD, officially known as the PRO-G40. The SanDisk portable solid-state drive lineup is easily one of the best and most popular out there. Previously headlined by the generation 2 Extreme and Extreme Pro variants, the Western Digital brand updated its offerings last fall with new SanDisk PRO-G40 – one of the fastest models yet with its usual rugged sensibilities and modern spec sheet. We have been lucky enough to go hands-on with the new PRO-G40 over the last few weeks to give it a run for its money and detail the experience for prospective buyers down below.

SanDisk ArmorATD Review: Is the protective hard drive’s lower price worth skipping faster SSDs?

The latest model SanDisk Professional 2TB G-DRIVE ArmorATD protective hard drive is in the spotlight today. Solid-state portable solutions have become far more affordable than year’s past, but they still, for the most part, can’t quite compete with the per TB pricing on traditional hard drives. The G-DRIVE ArmorATD lineup offers up a rugged solution for content creators and more at a relatively affordable cost of entry, but are the far slower transfers speeds compared to that of its SSD brethren worth the savings? Are hard drives even still a worth while investment? Let’s see if the ArmorATD brings enough to the table in other aspects for it to be worth your time. Head below for our hands-on review of the latest-generation SanDisk Professional 2TB G-DRIVE ArmorATD protective hard drive

SanDisk’s latest 2TB Extreme PRO Portable Review: 2,000MB/s of best-in-class SSD

The SanDisk Extreme Portable Solid-State Drive lineup has been considered to be the best portable SSD products out there by many for at least a few years now. The latest-generation V2 iterations come in a standard and PRO configurations with the main differences landing, for the most part, in the data transfer speeds and build material categories. Nonetheless, both models are easily among the best portable SSD solutions for just about anyone’s EDC, whether you’re a photographer, video-based content creator, or just someone looking for a high-quality solution for speedy backups and on-person storage – some folks even use them to store PS5 games and the like. But with a chance to go hands-on with the SanDisk 2TB Extreme PRO Portable Solid-State Drive V2 recently, I just had to get a closer look and finally put the seemingly best-in-class portable SSD lineup to the test for myself.

Review: SanDisk’s new Connect Wireless Stick is one of the easiest ways to expand your iPhone’s storage

Apple doesn’t make it easy to expand the storage of its mobile devices. This becomes a big issue when you start shooting HD videos and downloading Retina apps. Most people (especially 16GB device owners) wind up filling their devices to the point that they don’t have enough space to install updates. Over the past couple of years SanDisk’s Connect wireless flash drives have been one of the best ways to workaround this problem: they allow you to have access to huge media files whenever you want and to take as many pictures as you want without eating up precious on-board storage.

This morning SanDisk released its new Connect Wireless Stick. This drive has a refreshed design, lower price point and is now available with up to 128GB. I’ve been using it for the past few days. Read on to find out my first impressions of it:

SanDisk’s behemoth 200GB microSD is now in-stock and ready to ship

SanDisk unveiled its 200GB microSD card a few months back at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. At that time we were given an estimated street date of Q2 2015 and an MSRP of $399.99. Well, this giant microSD just became available for purchase from Amazon for $239.02.

It features transfer speeds of up to 90MB/s and packs enough storage to accommodate up to 20 hours of full HD video. By no means is this card necessary for average consumers, but professionals with a big tech budget may be able to justify it. MicroSD cards make for great additions to phones and digital cameras for storing photos, videos or apps and can be even be added to MacBooks with one of these adapters. SanDisk’s 128GB version priced at $78.99 is the smarter purchase for most people.

SanDisk’s 200GB beauty is currently the “world’s highest capacity microSD card,” but that may soon change since Microdia already detailed its plans for a 512GB card.

SanDisk’s groundbreaking microSD card will stuff an extra 200GB in your MacBook, smartphone, GoPro, more

SanDisk has taken the wraps off “the world’s highest capacity microSD card.” Packed with 200GB of speedy flash storage, the SanDisk Ultra microSDXC Premium Edition card represents a jump of 56% over the previous record holder. It can move data at up to 90MB/s, which SanDisk says is fast enough to transfer up to 1,200 photos per minute.

A 200GB microSD card is an eye-popping achievement. Just consider that it’s more space than many people’s laptops and more than 150% larger than the biggest available iPhone. Slide it into your Android smartphone or tablet, GoPro, and other portable gadgets and you’ll instantly have access to a massive amount of storage.

This is also big news for Mac users. We’ve shared with you just how easy it is to upgrade MacBook Air/Retina MacBook Pro laptops with a microSD card. Using the same method of
putting SanDisk’s new microSD card into a custom MacBook adapter, you’ll now be able to add 200GB of semi-permnenant storage to your Mac.

The 200GB model isn’t due to hit stores until Q2 this year and will be priced at $399.99.

My recommendation? If you aren’t in dire need of that much space, just buy last years 128GB model for $100.

SanDisk unveils first 128GB microSD card, will run $199 (Update: Avail. for $120)


Update (2/26): The official word was that this card would retail for $200, which Best Buy is charging, but Amazon has it listed for $120 with free shipping. It’s currently out of stock but will ship as soon as its available (2-3 weeks) at the discounted rate. Use this adapter to have the microSD card sit flush with your MacBook’s SD card slot.

At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, SanDisk has just announced a new accessory that will make many Android users very happy. The company has unveiled the world’s first ever 128GB microSD card. More specifically, the card uses the microSDXC standard, meaning that it works with devices only that are compatible with XC, not just the lower-end HC.

SanDisk does note, however, that the card is “designed for Android” and will be fully compatible with many Android devices. In addition to this new 128GB card, SanDisk will also be updating its “Memory Zone” app for Android, which allows users to easily and access files stored on microSD cards. The app also allows users to back up content to it and free-up internal device memory. A new “OptiMem” will automatically transfer older photos on a device to external memory.

The availability of 128GB microSD cards also signals that we could soon start seeing Android devices with 128GB of internal storage. This would be a big upgrade, especially when the operating system on many devices takes up more than 6GB of space.

The 128GB SanDisk microSD card will run $199.99 when it is released. The card will be available exclusively from Amazon and BestBuy.
