This story is part of, CNET’s guide to everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.
is running through Wednesday, October 14. It always has great deals on all types of storage – from memory cards to thumb drives to external and internal solid-state and hard drives. The prices may even compete with what you would find on Black Friday, and although the two are much closer to each other this year, I still expect to see some jaw-dropping prices.
If you are looking for a storage agreement from a specific brand such as SanDisk, WD, Seagate or Samsung, I have linked to their Amazon Store pages at the bottom of this story so you can see everything they have for sale. Below are some of the best finds we have found so far and we will update this page throughout the sale when new ones appear. The offers I have chosen are currently at or near the low prices according to camelcamelcamel, the price tracking website.
Extreme cards are only slightly slower than SanDisk’s Extreme Pro cards, but provide enough speed for your action camera, drone, game console, phone or tablet. And this is a huge amount of storage space (just make sure your device supports such large cards).
Samsung 860 Pro 1TB 2.5-inch internal SSD: $ 200
You save $ 100
The 860 Pro is one of Samsung’s fastest and most stable SSDs. If you’re just looking for easy storage, save more money with a device like Lexar below. This is done for heavy computer tasks such as NAS, games and video editing and this is the lowest I have ever seen the price.
This 4TB drive is perfect for backing up important files on the go. It is powered by the USB-A port on your computer so there is no need to find a socket to access or store your files. You can also download the 5TB version for only $ 100.
SK Hynix memory and storage is used by Apple and others in their products and now you can download its PCIe NVMe SSDs at a steep discount to install in your own system. They are the world’s first 128-layer NAND flash-based SSD consumers, which should provide faster and more stable performance.
If you need a 2.5-inch drive for your laptop or desktop computer, the company’s Gold S31 3D NAND 2.5-inch SATA III Internal SSD is about 50% off its original MSRP. You can get a 250 GB S31 for only $ 35.19 or a 500 GB for about $ 10 more.
Do you need massive storage for your PC game collection or videos and photos? This 3.5-inch device is fast enough to play directly from the device and large enough to hold countless titles. This is a desktop PC device, so it does not fit in your laptop. However, since this device is faster than your average external device, you can pair it with a power supply and make it a fast backup device as well.
If you have an older laptop that needs more storage space, Lexar’s 2.5-inch SSD is a cheap option. It is available in capacities from 128 GB to 1 TB.
This LaCie device is a bit more expensive than a typical portable hard drive, but that’s because it has a water, dust and shock resistant body. It is sold regularly for Prime Day and Black Friday, but this is the lowest I have seen the price for the 5TB version. The smaller capacities are also discounted today.
PNY’s small cordless flash drives offer large storage space that you can carry on a keychain. Turbo Attaché 3 is a USB 3.0 device so it is faster than your average cheap USB 2.0 memory – 10 times faster, says PNY.
