Amazon has dropped the price of the SanDisk Extreme 500GB Portable SSD, dropping the price to just $109, that is good for $60 off of the regular price. This also brings it back down to its all-time lowest price. Making it a great time to pick up the SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD. While that might seem like a lot for 500GB of storage, this is a SSD, which does cost more than a traditional HDD.
The SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD is a great portable SSD to pick up, partly because of how small it really is. It's pretty small and can fit on your keychain. In fact, it comes with a carabiner so you can actually put it on your keychain, and take it with you everywhere. It's small enough and uses USB-C, so it'll work with newer laptops. Making it easier for you to use it on the go. Now for those that do have an older laptop, SanDisk does include a USB-C to USB-A cable, so that you can plug it into a regular USB-A port too if needed.
With the SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD, you are not only getting a pretty small and portable SSD, but you are also getting a high-performing SSD. SanDisk offers 550MB/s transfer speeds, on both the read and write side of things. That is pretty darn fast and actually makes it one of the fastest portable SSD's currently available on the market. 550MB/s is pretty fast, and is going to make it easier to transfer those larger files over to your laptop or to the SSD (and vice versa). It's a great portable SSD to pick up for those that are content creators, as SSDs are much faster, and it's also great for storing a backup of your laptop or desktop. SanDisk does offer the Extreme Portable SSD in four different capacities: 250GB, 500GB, 1TB and 2TB. This is the smaller 500GB, so there's not a ton of space here, but for just $109, it's a really good price for those that need a portable SSD to store their files on. Whether that's video that you are editing, or just some documents that you need to keep with you. It's a great option.
