Amazon's one-day storage sale has great prices on SSDs, thumb drives, and external drives

Today you can grab a SanDisk Plus SSD for $40 off, and a WD My Passport external SSD for $27 off.

Amazon is in full sales mode today with two, count ‘em two, major one-day price drops on storage and Logitech devices. We’re covering both sales today, and this article is all about getting great deals on internal, external, and supplementary storage. All of today’s deals end just before midnight Pacific time on Wednesday evening.

You can find all of the deals here, but let's focus on our three top picks, all of which are at their lowest-ever prices on Amazon.

Internal SSD

Amazon has the 1TB SanDisk SSD Plus for $140. That’s $40 off its most recent price of $180. This drive is not included in our favorite SSDs for 2018 article, but other SanDisk drives are, and it’s a trusted brand. SanDisk says the read speeds for this drive max out at 535 megabytes per second and write speeds up to 450 megabytes per second.

External SSD

If an external SSD is more your speed, consider the WD 512GB My Passport SSD for just $98–about $27 off its most recent price on Amazon. This drive isn’t part of our round-up of the top external drives for 2018. WD’s My Passport hard drive, however, was our top pick as the best external backup drive. The My Passport SSD comes loaded with password-protected hardware encryption, a USB Type-C port, and the usual WD software for backup, cloud storage, and drive utilities.

Expanded storage

Our final top pick is this SanDisk Ultra microSD for $100 with a whopping 400GB of storage space. That’s $35 off its most recent price on Amazon and one heck of a deal for adding extra storage to a laptop with a card reader, a smartphone that can handle this capacity, or a camera. SanDisk says this microSD is a great card for recording in 1080p. However, anyone shooting in 4K would be better served with the SanDisk Extreme line, according to the company.

There’s a whole lot more than just these three drives on sale on Amazon today including thumb drives and a ton of external hard drives.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
