Let’s face it, most laptops just don’t have enough storage space, especially since media files are getting increasingly bigger. Running out of storage for photos, videos, and documents can render your computer virtually useless. But we’ve found a solution to all of your storage woes.

Enter the Samsung Bar Plus (256GB), a high quality and durable portable flash drive, so you can keep everything important to you in your pocket. And it’s on sale for $35, or $40 off at Amazon. That’s a 53 percent savings and the cheapest price we’ve ever seen on this little guy.

Sleek and fast

This is more than just your standard flash drive. First off, it’s made of tough and rugged metal instead of plastic like most flash drives. It also can hold up to a whopping 256GB of HD photos, 4K videos, Hi-Fi music, and other computer files, big and small alike. In fact, this is more storage space than the Apple iPhone 11 and most high-end laptops.

And best of all? This Samsung Bar Plus flash drive is blazing fast with transfer speeds upwards of 400MB per second. Translation: You can watch a 4K video file or play a 4K video game from it without any lag or latency. Compared to other flash drives with the same storage and around the same price from SanDisk and HP that top out at only 100MB per second.

“Great USB drive! Fast, has tons of space and looks so sleek and modern,” shares a delighted five-star reviewer. “I have downloaded my entire iPhoto library onto this little device with room to spare. A win-win since it has opened up so much storage on my computer!”

Waterproof and durable

The Samsung flash drive—originally priced at $75—is waterproof, too, so if you accidentally leave it in your pocket and put it through the wash, it will come out in complete working condition. Most importantly, all your data will still be on it too.

“A must have. When you look at it, it may seem like your average USB stick but when you pick it up, you realize its the real deal,” writes another five-star reviewer.

In fact, it’s also shockproof, magnet-proof, temperature-proof and x-ray-proof, so don’t worry, your data is safe—even against all sorts of accidents and misuse. “This drive will take the abuse,” adds a satisfied shopper. “Since it's much more important to me that files are still on the drive even if I drop it or dunk it or whatever.”

Bottom line

At 40 percent off and its lowest price ever, this Samsung Bar Plus (256GB) flash drive—which comes in gray and silver too—is an all-around great score. It will almost feel as if the flash drive is actually part of your laptop instead of a portable plug-in.

“These flash drives have excellent physical construction,” raves an Amazon shopper. “I like the overall design too. It is very easy to handle. It makes pushing in and pulling out the drive very smooth.”
