- PNY Portable Storage Deals
It's been over a month since Amazon had a one-day sale on portable storage products.
Today, they're selling PNY flash drives and SD cards for 20% to 50% off, including:
OBi200 Voice-Over-IP Telephone Adapter for $50, and code EMCTCWU27 applies $10 off.
This is the single-line model of the OBi202 that we have, but works similarly in every way.
It was easy to set up with a free Google Voice phone number, and gives free incoming and outgoing phone calls within the US and Canada.
Use any standard home telephone or cordless phone, and never pay any monthly fees for home phone service.
Note that 911 emergency calling does NOT work with free Google Voice.
We solved this by adding Anveo E911 for $20 for the first year, $18/year thereafter.
The "E" part of E911 means Enhanced, where the caller's location is automatically provided to dispatchers when the call is placed.
This helps emergency services get there quicker.
- Crucial 240GB SSD for $27
Crucial BX200 240GB Solid State Drive for $29, and code EMCTCUV27 applies $2 off.
Good for cheap and fast storage, but don't use for something you need to be reliable.
Like many other cheap TLC-based SSDs, they are cheap & fast, but don't hold up over time.
TomsHardware gave this drive 2.5 stars (out of 5).
That being said, this has one of the best warranties of all cheap SSDs, giving a 3-year warranty.
Crucial (owned by Micron) is a US-based company, so any warranty service might be better than Asia-based brands.
