If you’re in need or a super fast portable drive but also need it to be more rugged than is the norm, you probably want to check out one of SanDisk’s Extreme drives. Right now there are two storage options available at discounted rates, both swing a bundle and both great drives even without the discount.

Kicking things off we have the 250GB version of the Extreme 500 lineup, and it’s a great looking little thing.

It may be small, but with 250GB of storage to play with and blazingly fast transfer speeds, this is a great option. It’s shock-resistant, too, making it perfect for photographers and videographers who need to be able to throw storage in a bag and get on with work. Connectivity is handled by USB 3.0 and transfer speeds are up to 440MB/s.

If you need a little more storage for your media, the 500GB Extreme is a great option. With increased transfer speeds of up to 440MB/s and a USB 3.1 Gen-2 connectivity in tow alongside a type-A adapter in the box, this drive is both rugged and super fast, perfect for the most demanding of mobile users.

Whether you’re trudging around the outback or taking inner city photos, having instant access to huge amounts of data without fear of spinning disks breaking is what makes portable SSDs so appealing. That’s before you consider the fact they can be so fast as well their ruggedness.

If you absolutely cannot afford to lose data while working, picking up one of these two portable SSDs is absolutely a great idea.
