It’s a good time to buy SSDs and memory cards if you’ve been looking to expand the storage capacity of your devices. Samsung products are on sale for up to 57 percent off on Amazon, some of which are now listed for their all-time lowest prices on the website. The 512 GB Samsung microSDXC Pro Plus card that comes with a USB reader, for example, will set you back $48. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen for the product, which normally sells for $55 and used to sell for as much as $115. It has read/write speeds of 160/120 MB/s and can store up to 30 hours of recorded 4K video.
Another option is Samsung’s 128GB Evo Select microSDXC card with adapter, which currently sells for just $12, or 40 percent less than its $20 list price. It’s a U3-rated card that has transfer speeds of up to 130MB/s, and Samsung recommends it for use not only with mobile devices, but also with the Nintendo Switch console.
But if it’s a memory card for dashcams or security cameras you’re looking for, then Samsung’s 128GB Pro Endurance microSDXC card may be the best option. Samsung designed the model to be able to record and rewrite images up to hundreds of thousands of hours long, or up to eight years of continuous recording for the 128GB version. The company also says that it designed the model to last and can withstand exposure to magnets, X-rays, water, extreme temperatures, and drops.
In case you’re looking to increase your computer’s storage capacity, Samsung’s 980 Pro Internal SSD is also on sale. The 500GB variant will set you back $60, which is the all-time low for the SSD and is 57 percent lower than its $140 list price. It can reach read speeds of up to 3,500MB/s and write speeds of up to 3400MB/s. Samsung says that the Pro SSD was specifically designed for hardcore gamers and tech-savvy users, as it has the ability to handle high-performance applications for gaming, graphics, and data analysis, among others. The model is also available in 1TB and 2TB if you need even more space.
