The Memorial Day Sale is almost over – yep, it went by in a flash, and still nobody has beaten this epic Memorial Day hard drive deal. The good news? It's still going. Our top buy as the best Memorial Day hard drive deal of 2022 is still available getting you almost half price on the SanDisk Extreme 1TB SSD – reduced by $120 from $249.99 to $129.99 (opens in new tab) at B&H Photo.

While the deal was scheduled to end on Sunday, it was still running when we last checked, offering a little more time to grab fast, spacious storage for a phenomenal price. Remember, this is a super-solid SSD – not a traditional HDD with moving parts. That means faster and more reliable storage, and from a reliable brand too. SanDisk's Extreme range offers good build and fast read/write speeds of up to 1050 and 1000 MB/s. They come with USB-C connection, and there's an adapter in case you need type-A.

You can still sort yourself out for even more rapid speeds too, as B&H has 1TB option in SanDisk's faster Extreme Pro range slashed by $100 to $199.99 (opens in new tab). This is our favourite SSD on the market, as you'll see in our pick of the best external hard drives, offering speeds of up to 2000 MB/s. 

And if you need to transfer huge amounts of data – more than 1TB, B&H also has a whopping $360 off the SanDisk Extreme 4TB SSD, now $439.99 (opens in new tab). Of course for that kind of size an SSD is always going to be pricy and you might want to consider a traditional HDD instead, for which the best deal we've found is $65 off the WD Elements 6TB desktop HDD – now $124.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab).
