I recommend a portable SSD to just about every photo and video creator I know. These tiny storage devices provide super high-speed transfers and allow you to edit assets without having to clog up your computer’s internal drive. Right now, Amazon and Adorama have some of the best portable SSDs around for up to 70 percent off. These are some of the lowest prices we’ve seen on these, so it’s a great time to stock up if you are running out of space.
The deals below are still going strong, but if you are looking for a different drive, SanDisk’s Professional G-Drives are also on sale, as well as drives from LaCie, Western Digital, and Samsung.
SanDisk 4TB Extreme PRO Portable SSD $299 (was $899)
SanDisk makes a few different versions of its Extreme Portable SSD, with the Extreme PRO falling at the top of the line. It offers up to 2000 MB/s of read and write speeds, which is a good deal faster than the version below. For photographers and videographers needing the fastest possible speeds from a hard drive, this is the way to go. And it still offers IP55 water and dust resistance and is protected against falls of 6.5 feet. It’s slightly cheaper on Adorama than Amazon right now, so we’d recommend shopping there to save even more, especially on the 4TB version.
SanDisk Extreme PRO Portable 1TB External SSD V2 $139 (was $314)
SanDisk 2TB Extreme Portable SSD $132 (was $459)
This is the sweet spot in the lineup, and it is the cheapest price I have ever seen on this particular model. You get a full 2TB of storage, which is plenty for most projects. It offers 1050MB/s read and up to 1000MB/s write speeds over a USB-C connection.
It achieved an IP55 ruggedness rating, which means it can withstand water, dust, drops, and a spilled coffee during a 3 a.m. editing session.
If you need more (or less) space, you can still save a ton of money. If you’re going to buy the 500GB model, I’d recommend just spending the extra $15 to get double the storage but do whatever works for you.
