We normally see sales on the 2TB version of this model but not everyone needs 2TB! If you are good with 1TB for your backup drive (especially on trips), this is an excellent deal! Plus, you will get a free 256GB flash drive thrown in!
Travel Tech Deal: SanDisk 1TB Extreme SSD On Sale
Link: SanDisk 1TB Extreme SSD with 256GB Flash Drive for $169 (this is an affiliate link that supports the site should you buy through it – thanks!)
If you have an Apple computer, chances are you went for the moderate amount of storage since Apple charges such a premium for their (very fast) storage. Well, if you want to get more storage in a small package, this Sandisk 1TB Extreme SSD can do that for much less! Not only will this handle a lot that you can throw at it but you can get 1TB for just $169.
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.
I have the 1TB version and, comparing it to my Samsung T5 drives, it is a really great 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.
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.
