Cloud storage is great, but like any technology, it has a time and place. When you want guaranteed storage that doesn’t require an internet connection to access, what you really need is a good external drive. This 2TB portable SSD keeps your data close and your devices unclogged. And for a limited time, it costs just $34.99.

That price is so unbelievably low that this SSD quickly sold out the last few times we offered it. Our vendor just acquired approximately 120 more units, and it’s available again as a Cult of Mac Deals exclusive … while supplies last!

An inexpensive SSD

Sometimes the best solution is the simplest one. You need more space on your computer? Get some extra space that can fit in a drawer or the pocket of your computer bag.

This portable external drive is easy to use and does its only job flawlessly. Simply plug it in and start transferring files. The USB-C connection gives this thing good reading and writing speeds, even if you’re using huge files. The drive can read up to 43MB/s and write up to 37MB/s.

It’s fast and consistent, which is what you want when you rely on your external drive for work or school.

At 2TB, this SSD can function like your own little mobile database. Use it on the job, and you could probably keep your entire work file library in there. Use it for school and you’ve got room for notes, lectures, textbooks and anything else you need, all in one place. If you’re taking online courses, you could download all your video lectures and watch them without an internet connection.

This powerful mobile SSD is made from sturdy aluminum and plastic, so it’s built for travel and heavy use. And there are entire threads of people just talking about how many ways they’ve made a portable drive like this one essential in their lives. One user wrote that they utilize “external hard drives for an archive of old songs and all movies/videos you might use.”
