Sabrent Rocket Nano (1TB) – $120

Sabrent Rocket Nano


Sabrent’s Rocket Nano portable SSD in 1TB is down to $120, which is a record low for that capacity. We like it’s compact, aluminum-alloy design that makes it smaller than a credit card and its USB 3.2 interface that allows for speeds up to 1,000 MB/s. It also comes with USB-C to C and USB-C to A cables so you can use it with just about any machine.

Sabrent Rocket Gen4 SSD (1TB) – $150

Sabrent Rocket Gen4 PCIe SSD


The excellent Sabrent Rocket Gen4 internal SSD returns to a record low of $150 for Cyber Monday. It’s a great bang-for-your-buck SSD even at its normal price, but it’s even better now that you can get it on sale. In addition to a standard M.2 2280 form factor, the Rocket SSD should reach read speeds up to 5,000 MB/s and write speeds up to 4,400 MB/s when paired with a Gen4 motherboard.

Samsung’s T7 Touch has dropped to $170 for the 1TB model, which is $60 off its normal price.

Crucial’s X8 portable SSD is down to an all-time low of $130 for a 1TB model. It has read speeds of up to 1,050 MB/s and it works with almost any device that has a USB-C 3. 1 Gen 2 or USB-A connector. We also like its aluminum unibody that’s designed to be drop-, shock- and vibration-proof.

Samsung EVO Select microSDXC card (256GB) – $25

Samsung Select EVO microSD card


Samsung’s EVO Select microSDXC card in 256GB is down to $25, which is $3 cheaper than it was during Amazon Prime Day last month. While you can find microSD cards for less, EVO is a reliable brand and we like you also get a full-sized adapter with this one. There are also discounts on the same cards in 512GB and 128GB capacities.

SanDisk microSDXC card for Nintendo Switch (128GB) – $20

SanDisk microSDXC card for Nintendo Switch


This is a record low price for SanDisk’s officially licensed Nintendo Switch microSD card. Do you need an officially licensed card? No — in fact, the Samsung EVO card listed above should also work just fine with Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite consoles. But some will inevitably prefer to have a card with that little mushroom logo on it, and if you or someone you love is that person, this deal should do the trick.

If you need to offload some photos from your iPhone but also keep them fairly accessible, SanDisk’s iXpand flash drive is a good way to do so. This handy drive in the 128GB capacity is on sale for $40 right now, which is $20 off its normal price. It fits into the Lightning port on your iPhone or iPad, allowing you to transfer photos, videos, documents and other digital stuff over to it quickly and easily. On the flip side, it has a USB-A connector so you can then move that information to your computer whenever you need to. If you like the portability of a flash drive like that but need a USB-C port instead, SanDisk’s Ultra Dual Drive in 256GB is discounted to $33 right now.

SanDisk’s tough and tiny Extreme portable SSD is down to $90 for the 500GB model, which is $60 off its normal price. While it’s possible to pay a bit less for the same storage capacity with other brands, you’re paying for the added protection that this drive has. Not only is it small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, but it’s also IP55 water- and dust-resistant and it can withstand drops from up to two meters. It also has password protection and 256‐bit AES hardware encryption. The newer PRO model, which can reach speeds of up to 2,000MB/s, is also discounted to $200 for a 1TB model.
