    B&M so YMMV - I picked up an xbox one S for 239.00 and was debating between an external ssd or hd for games - I was going to make my own external ssd but the cheapest 500 gb one I could find was in the 140 dollar range (not to mention getting a good enclosure) -

    This is about the size of a book of matches (guessing it is an msata micron ssd in there) usb C to A cable - for 99 bucks!

    I was tempted to get two! pics below - GL

    Nice deal!

    Wish I could find it posted at that price online officially so I can try to price match.
    If you are back in Costco soon, please shoot a pic of the price on that and post it.

    I can confirm they are now 79.97---I picked up a couple - using one to offload 4k videos shot on my s8+ plugs right in and recognized it. Unbeatable deal for less than 80 bucks now.

    I don't have a Costco near me that seems to have any of these in stock. Anyone who trades here regularly willing to pick one up and ship it (obviously for money!) to me? PM me if willing. Thanks in advance!

    Where are you guys seeing them? I looked where they keep the seagate drives but didn't see any. Perhaps they are in an odd location?

    Had to ask one of the guys in red where it was, and he look at the image on my screen and walked my right over to it -- underneath the display of laptops.

    Oh forgot to mention -- I initially looked in the area where they keep the SD/MicroSD and USB drives (thumb and external), which is where I thought they would be, but they were not there. Just ask one of the guys in red.

    It is definitely a custom build -- and no TRIM support. So as it gets more full, it will slow down.
