The 1TB SanDisk Ultra II SSD, a 2.5-inch SATA III drive, is currently on sale on Amazon. Customers looking for a high-capacity SSD at a relatively low price may want to act on this deal.

Not that long ago the prospect of getting a high-capacity SSD was a pricey one. While the price of SSDs has gradually come down over the years since they first became widely available on the consumer market, the cost has been known to fluctuate. As reported earlier this year, the price of SSDs has seen a bit of a hike due to a supply crunch and increased demand. Thankfully, Amazon is offering the 2.5-inch SanDisk Ultra II 1TB SSD for $270 – $50 off its normal listed price. Other capacities are on sale as well, with the 480GB variant receiving a sizable 31% discount to US$148.

While the Ultra II is a SATA III drive (not an increasingly popular NVMe M.2 drive) SanDisk boasts sequential read speeds of up to 545MB/s with write speeds of up to 525MB/s. You can find a complete overview of the device over at AnandTech, but the reviews on Amazon are quite favorable. Pricing data provided by camelcamelcamel shows that, over the past three months, the device has received a price-cut several times, with lowest its lowest pricing at $250 briefly back in April. Since June, however, the normal listing has stuck tightly to a $320 price tag. Needless to say, this is a good opportunity to pick up the device – especially if you are not inclined to wait out the inflated prices until demand stabilizes.

I am a writer with a passion for foreign language. I dream of one day becoming a polyglot. When I'm not perusing through my ever-growing backlog of books, I can usually be found tinkering with PC hardware and other gadgets. I enjoy trying to get old hardware to run newer programs and experimenting with various operating systems.
