Depending on the type of computer you may have, you may find that you are needing more storage than you did when you bought it! If you don’t have a Mac, you can probably upgrade the harddrive yourself or you can always go with the flow and use the cloud storage.
Deal of the Day: Sandisk 2TB Extreme SSD
However, with external SSD drives dropping in price, it can be a really smart thing to grab one so that you can always have your files even when you get rid of a computer – or even if you are traveling without it! If you are taking photos or videos, it can also be nice to have a small, portable and quite fast SSD to back up your files to.
One of Amazon’s Deal of the Day items happens to be for just something like that – a Sandisk 2TB Extreme SSD. I have the 1TB version and, comparing it to my Samsung T5 drives, it is a really good drive as well! Not only is it really fast (over 500MB/s read speeds) but having something so nice and small that can also handle a bit of a beating from dust and water makes it a great drive to have.
Other retailers have this particular SSD on sale for $399, down from an original retail price of $699. Today only, Amazon has it on sale for just $299. If you have the 20% off Amex deal (by activating it here and applying a single Membership Reward point at checkout – if you are targeted), that can make this deal even sweeter as well.
The 1TB itself is $189 so getting double the space for just 60% increase in price is a really good deal – especially when we are talking about portable SSD storage! This drive does come with USB-C, so it is ready for many modern computers, but it also has a USB-A adapter as well.
Keeping your data backed up is important. Sure, the cloud is great, but sometimes when we travel, the internet can be extremely slow or not even available. Being able to have all your necessary files right with you can be a huge help! With 2 terabytes of storage, you should be set for a long time!
