expiredGold Box: Monster SanDisk storage sale: 200GB MicroSD: $60, UltraFit 128GB USB: $25, much more

Update: Adorama has the 200GB SanDisk card for $60 

Amazon has a monster Gold Box offer from SanDisk today showing all time lows on their best products. There is truly something for everyone here.

Standouts are the SanDisk Ultra 200GB Micro SD w/full sized adapter for $59.99 shipped. That’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen on a 200GB MicroSD card by quite a bit. It instantly turns any MicroSD compatible Android phone into a 200GB powerhouse of storage. It is also great w/90MB/s speed for GoPros, Raspberry Pis and with a little add on, can be a nice 200GB of extra storage for your SD Card-enabled Mac or PC.

Also available in 128GB version for $34.99 shipped. 64GB for $17.99 and 32GB for $9.99

If you want to add some storage to your iOS device, SanDisk has iXpands in 64GB and 128GB for $49.99 and $79.99 shipped as well.

USB 3 storage is cheaper than ever as well… with SanDisk Cruzer’s above 128GB for $21.99. too big? Just $12.79 buys you 64GB. 

Better yet, get USB storage that you barely notice sticking out of your Mac/PC. (Below) UltraFits are just $13.99 for 64GB and $24.99 for 128GB. I actually use one of these in my car USB port to store MP3s and it works great and is barely noticeable.

Need some USB-C storage? SanDisk has you covered there too. Futureproof your storage for just $14.99 gets you 64GB while $29.99 gets you 128GB of storage. Great for Retina MacBooks, Chromebook Pixels and even Nexus and other USB-C android phones and tablets.

Another huge deal is SanDisk’s super portable wireless storage “Connect Wireless Stick” in 128GB or 200GB for $59.99 and $89.99. These allow a few different devices share the same music, files, movies and photos at the same time. Also great for the car, especially with kids.

Finally, if you want to speed up or grow your PC or Mac’s SSD storage, grab a 480/960GB Sandisk SSD for $99.99 or $199.99. Incredible prices for these.

Basically these are the lowest prices across a wide variety of storage platforms. If you think you might need storage any time stoon, today’s the day.

expiredAcer Iconia 8GB HD Tablet in 4 colors, dual cams, Intel Atom refurb: $50 shipped

Acer via Amazon is offering the 7-inch Iconia One tablet factory refurbished for $49.99 with free shipping.  Originally, the Iconia One ran at $129.99, making this an impressive 62% off deal and the lowest price we’ve seen on a name brand tablet.

The Acer Iconia One features a 7-inch 1280 x 800 display with an Intel Atom Z2560 processor clocked at 1.6GB and paired with 1GB of RAM. While the device will run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean when it arrives, Android 5.0 Lollipop is readily available and can easily be installed. On the back of the device is a 2MP camera, while the front houses a 0.3MP shooter.

Even though the device is refurbished, Acer promises that it shows limited or no wear and includes all original accessories as well as a 90-day hardware warranty.

$50 for an Android tablet is hard to beat, especially one that can run the *almost* latest version of Android. The device has a 4.5 star rating on Amazon and comes in black, blue, purple, and red.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation announced a big small upgrade to is Pi lineup today. The A+ is a sub 2.5-inch square (65mmx55mm vs. 86mm for the B+ and A) and uses less power and adds some nice improvements:

  • More GPIO. The GPIO header has grown to 40 pins. The Model A+ is compatible with the HAT standard for add-on boards.
  • Micro SD. The old friction-fit SD card socket has been replaced with a much nicer push-push micro SD version.
  • Better audio. The audio circuit incorporates a dedicated low-noise power supply.

The big deal is the even cheaper $20 price point, $15 less than either of the previous models.

Need some inspiration of what to build? Check out some compilations, more, more…or just check the forums. My favorite? AirPlay Mirroring.

You can pick up a  $20 Pi A+ or the $35 B here.
