B&H has the LaCie Rugged Thunderbolt External SSD with USB-C on sale for $179.99 today while supplies last. This is the lowest price we've ever seen for this hard-wearing drive that usually sells for nearer $300 when in stock at Amazon. We've never seen it drop this low before today.

You can store plenty of data on this drive with its large capacity but this drive's best feature is how protective it is of whatever's contained on it, as it's drop, crush, shock, and rain-resistant — perfect for taking on the go. Being an SSD, it's more resilient on the inside too with no moving parts like in a traditional hard drive. It also delivers data faster than a HDD with rates of up to 510 MB/s along with its integrated Thunderbolt cable capable of transferring data at rates of up to 10 Gb/s. It features a USB-C port with 5 Gb/s speeds for use with non-Thunderbolt computers as well as a USB-C cable and USB-C to USB 3.0 cable to get it plugged in. It's compatible with Windows or macOS and is backed by a 3-year warranty.

This rugged drive made it onto our list of the best USB-C SSDs in 2019 so you know you are getting a quality product. You also get a free month of Adobe Creative Cloud when you register your purchase — for new and existing customers — which is a nice added extra worth around $50.
