SanDisk 2TB Extreme Portable SSD | $230 | Amazon
Add super fast storage on the cheap to, well, anything that has a USB interface with SanDisk’s 2TB external SSD. This portable unit is normally around $320, but it’s just $230 at Amazon today. We’ve seen it lower a year ago, but it’s hovered around $250-290 in recent times, so this is your best chance to score some savings.
It uses a USB-C connection over USB 3.1 where read speeds reach as high as 550 megabytes per second. Speed and storage aside, this is also the drive to get if you’re working in the elements often. It has shock and vibration resistance, and with an IP55 rating, it also survives a little dust and rain.
Whether you’re backing up all your files or need somewhere to hold your massive games without sacrificing load times, this is something any serious PC user should consider adding to their list of essential tech.
