Upgrade your storage with the SanDisk Ultra 2TB solid state drive down to $200

The SanDisk Ultra 2TB internal solid state drive (opens in new tab) is down to $199.99 on Amazon. We haven't seen this large capacity version of the SanDisk Ultra lineup go on sale very much at all. Today's deal matches a low we saw once in August but not for months before that. It has been selling for around $240 for most of the year and has only gone down to $230 recently. The 1TB version (opens in new tab) is going for around $108, and the 500GB version (opens in new tab) goes for about $65. The 2TB is much better value than both options.

This is a budget drive that offers a serious upgrade over traditional hard drives with read/write speeds of 560 MB/s and 530 MB/s respectively. The SSD uses 3D NAND technology for longer read/write cycles (expanding its lifetime).

The Ultra 3D came out back in 2017 and was originally designed to compete with Samsung's 850 Evo (opens in new tab). It's not as fast as the Evo line, which has continued to see more and more upgrades over time, but price-wise it is a much better value. It offers a serious upgrade over traditional hard drives with read/write speeds of 560 MB/s and 530 MB/s respectively. The SSD uses 3D NAND technology for longer read/write cycles (so you can write to it more often over its lifetime), and it also uses less power than previous generation SSDs and other hard drives.

Basically, if you really want to upgrade to an SSD but you don't have the money for something like an advanced NVMe M.2 SSD (opens in new tab), go with SanDisk's lineup. It could also be worth it as a backup SSD to your primary drive just for the storage.

SanDisk backs up the Ultra with a limited five-year warranty. Users give it 4.6 stars out of 5 based on 882 reviews (opens in new tab).
