The Thunderbolt 3 External SSD was just announced by Plugable and it’s immediately getting a price markdown.
The 1TB version is $249 (normally $299) and the 2TB version is for $399 (normally $499). Not only do these boast ample amounts of storage, but both have fast read and write speeds, clocking in at 2400MB/s and 1800MB/s, respectively. Content creators and gamers alike will love these speeds. It should even allow you to run games or edit video files directly from the drive itself. The light aluminum body provides both protection and heat dispersal, and at just larger than a smartphone they are highly portable. The aluminum casing should match some high-end laptops on the market like the Surface Laptop 3.
These latest SSDs from Plugable surpass the more affordable SanDisk Extreme (a 1TB for $149.99 down from $199.99) but fall behind Samsung’s more expensive X5 (a 1TB for $399.99 down from $699.99) in terms of the specifications. Thunderbolt 3 External SSDs are compatible with PC, Mac and Linux. You will also receive a 3-year limited warranty with your purchase.
