Sure, cloud storage is nice and all, but when it comes to moving large files quickly and easily, nothing beats the good ol’ fashioned sneakernet. Enter this stunner of a deal: Amazon is selling PNY’s high-speed 512GB Pro Elite V2 flash drive for just $50 during its October Prime Days blowout, a massive savings off its usual $75 price. It’s a deal I personally plan to take advantage of before the deals end at midnight.
“But why would you spend $50 on a flash drive?” you may ask. Well, dear hypothetical wondering mind, it’s because the PNY Elite Pro V2 flash drive is basically an SSD you carry around in your pocket. Not only does it come with that massive 512GB capacity, but thanks to its internal hardware and USB 3.2 support, this pint-sized powerhouse transfers data at blistering 600MB/s read and 500MB/s speeds. That matches the fastest SATA SSDs. Whoa.
