Upgrade to a solid state drive with the SanDisk SSD Plus 480GB for $70

The SanDisk SSD Plus 480GB solid state drive (opens in new tab) is down to $69.99 on Amazon. This SSD has been selling for around $90 or more since August. It has been on a steady decline over the course of the year and was going for as much as $135 in January. This is the lowest we have seen it go, and it's part of a larger one-day sale on various SanDisk storage products.

Many of the other capacities are going for low prices, too. For example, the 960GB version (opens in new tab) is currently $149.99. Except for a very brief drop to $140 we shared once, that is its lowest price. It was selling as high as $220 in August.

The SSD Plus is SanDisk's entry-level SSD. It's built using SanDisk's MLC NAND, which is unusual for an inexpensive SSD like this. You'd expect it to be built with TLC, which is usually cheaper. MLC is also more reliable than TLC and can withstand more read/write cycles. That's all good stuff for anyone interested in this device. SanDisk says this drive has read and write speeds of 535 MB/s and 450 MB/s. It is also shock and vibration resistant.
