'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

B&H's offer on a portable, rugged hard drive is not to be missed.
Written by Charlie Osborne, Contributing Writer

In today's world of digital media and downloadable content, the storage available on your PC or tablet isn't always enough. 

If you need more space to manage your TV shows, music, photos, or work documents -- and you tend to be accident-prone -- you might want to consider purchasing the SanDisk 2TB Extreme portable SSD. While usually set with a store price tag of around $450, US retail giant B&H is offering $270 off, bringing the cost down to $180.

The SanDisk Extreme portable SSD drive provides users with 2TB of storage space, which is more than adequate to handle large files and digital media libraries. What makes this device different, however, is the combination of portability and a hard chassis that has earned an IP55 dust and water resistance rating.
