Earlier this month Amazon-owned Woot ran a deal on an SSD with the Kodak brand that netted those who ordered 480GB of SSD storage space for a scant $40. If you missed out on that deal and have been kicking yourself for not upgrding to SSD goodness, you have another chance. This time it's an actual a device from a well-known storage brand name that is on sale that you will instantly recognize.
Amazon is offering a SanDisk SSD Plus 480GB Internal SATA SSD in 2.5-inch form factor for $49.99. This may be one of the best deals on a SanDisk SSD that we see for a while. To sweeten the deal even further, if you are a Prime member you can get free next-day Prime delivery and in some areas.
The drive promises read speed of up to 535MB/s and write speed of up to 445MB/s. Everyone knows that SSDs are much faster than normal hard drives. Adding an SSD to your machine is one of the best ways to improve performance and get your software and games to load faster. At $50, this is a cheap and easy way to give that dusty old computer in your office with a 5400rpm hard drive a nice speed boost.
Anyone wanting more than 480GB of storage can get the 1TB version of this same drive for $99.99.
