Computer storage is one of those things that you know you need but, let’s face it, you probably put it off because it’s not the most exciting purchase. However, it’s also something you don’t want to put off until you run out of space or suffer through a drive failure and then pay full price for a drive.

Of course, preventing a catastrophe isn’t the only reason to pick up a new internal or external hard drive or solid-state drive. Maybe you want to speed up your desktop or laptop performance, give yourself more room for your PC, Xbox, PlayStation or Switch game library, add a portable drive to your bag for on-the-go file transfers or increase how many photos and videos you can capture with your camera. Even those with the best cloud storage service will still want a good external drive with gigabytes to hold your files, music, movies, photos and games. 

Keep in mind that Prime Day is coming in June: That event usually prompts across-the-board price drops in this category, at Amazon and elsewhere. But for those of you who can’t wait, we’ve pulled together some of the best deals on flash drives, SSDs and SD cards that are available right now. Check them out below.

WD

This little drive, available only at Best Buy, puts 4TB of storage in your bag. It’ll work with Windows or Mac (you’ll need to reformat for MacOS, which is a snap to do) and draws power from your computer so you don’t have to worry about an extra power adapter. It just uses one USB 3.0 cable for power and data transfers. WD also includes backup software and utilities to configure, manage and diagnose the drive. 

SanDisk

This card is fast enough to let you capture 4K video with your camera as well as shoot raw and burst photography without slowing you down. Depending on your device’s capabilities, this SanDisk card has a max write speed of up to 90MB per second, but it is also guaranteed to record at a minimum of 30MB per second. It comes in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB capacities and all of them are currently on sale.
