Cyber Monday 2018 storage deals


Samsung's best-selling solid-state drive for consumers is $130 for Cyber Monday. This drive will not only speed up booting the system and launching games and software, but with 1TB storage, you're not sacrificing storage for speed. 

This deal is also available for $2 more at Best Buy. Then again, Best Buy includes a $25 Shutterfly credit with every drive purchase.

A rugged external drive that uses an SSD instead of a hard disk, it's water- and dust-resistant. A singe USB Type‐C port delivers power and data transfers, and SanDisk includes a Type‐C-to-Type-C cable as well as a Type‐C-to-Type‐A adapter.

Many of the thumb drives discounted for Cyber Monday are slower USB 2.0. This drive's faster USB 3.0 interface is better for large file transfers and with 256GB of storage you'll have plenty of room for them.

Western Digital

This 10TB external USB 3.0 hard drive paired with a 32GB Easystore USB flash drive normally runs about $300 but is knocked down to only $180 for Cyber Monday. We've seen other 10TB external drives around for similar price, but they don't come with the USB flash drive. 

So many devices -- phones, tablets, Chromebooks, cameras, Nintendo's Switch -- use microSD cards. This is a cheap way to expand your storage, not to mention one of the best deals we've seen for a 128GB card. The deal begins Thanksgiving Day at 5 p.m.

For Cyber Monday you can get SD and microSD cards, rugged external SSDs, thumb drives and more from Amazon right now -- up to 75 percent off. The site even breaks them down by user type so you know you're getting the right stuff. 


The WD Black NVMe M.2 2280 1TB internal solid-state drive is generally around $300, but Newegg has taken a sizable chunk out of that price. If you're looking for regular hard drives for your laptop, desktop or NAS, the site has deals on those, too. 

Compatible with Windows and Mac, this portable USB-powered hard drive includes Seagate's Dashboard backup software. Normally $70, this drive can be had for $50 from Amazon and includes a 2-month membership to Adobe Creative Cloud Photography Plan. Costco members can pick up a 2TB version for only $60
