- Sale on some Sandisk Flash Drives, USB Drives, and SSDs
They run a sale on SanDisk products every few months, and is a good time to get memory cards, a USB flash drive, and a SSD.
Deals on the list include,
- Sandisk Cruzer Glide 128GB USB Flash Drive for $40
SanDisk 128GB Cruzer Glide USB Flash Drive with 128-bit Encryption for $40 today (31¢/GB).
It usually goes for around $50.
Beware that it does have a lot of fair to poor reviews, as well as some positive ones.
The two biggest complaints are the encryption software and the speed of the drive.
Some people report that data can be written to the drive at around 5 megabytes per second, which means filling the drive's entire 128GB capacity can take around 7 hours.
Also beware that it uses software-based encryption, which adds a layer of personal security but can add hassle.
An encrypted flash drive would need the software installed on all computers that would access this drive.
That being said, it is difficult to find such a large 128GB capacity thumb drive at this price.
- Sandisk 256GB SSD for $87 (expired: 3:30pm EDT, sold out)
SanDisk Ultra Plus 256GB Solid State Drive is currently on sale for $86.81 (34¢/GB).
This is a great deal, and $13 less than a previous hot deal on this drive.
Many 128GB SSDs can be found for around $85, so a 256GB for $87 is a hot deal.
- Deals on some Computer Components and Accessories
Amazon.com has put up a one-day sale on a lot of computer parts & accessories, including Corsair power supplies (our favorite brand of power supply), EVGA video cards (our favorite brand of video cards), Sandisk solid state drives, Intel CPUs, and Asus motherboards.
Also, they are offering a Kingston HyperX 1TB USB3.0 Flash Drive for $830 (about $200 off).
It is incredibly expensive for most people, but could be useful for anyone who wants a small, fast, and personal backup storage device that they can keep in their pocket (as opposed to a portable hard drive which is bigger).
