Amazon is now offering the 2022 model WD_BLACK 1TB P40 Game Drive Solid-State Drive for $159.99 shipped. This one was unveiled back in May at $180 and has fetched as much ever since. Today’s deal is the first price drop we have tracked and, subsequently, a new Amazon all-time low. Delivering up to 2,000MB/s transfer rates, it is compatible with PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X/S, Windows, and Mac systems. As you’ll know from our recent hands-on review, this is a USB 3.2 Gen2x2 drive designed to house your game library as well as anything else you might want on a portable SSD alongside built-in RGB lighting that glows around the perimeter of the device. While it can only be customized on Windows, the rainbow LED treatment still looks pretty fantastic when connected to other systems. Get a closer look right here and down below.
While it’s still at full price, you can save even more and land a nearly identical experience with the 500GB model. This one also released earlier this year and sells for $120 shipped on Amazon. You’re looking at the same lighting, metal housing, and USB 3.2 Gen2x2 action, just with a lighter storage capacity.
We are also still tracking a notable price drop on the popular SanDisk 2TB water-resistant Extreme portable SSD. This one delivers double the storage capacity at $200 via Amazon right now and was an easy choice for our roundup of the best portable SSDs. It’s not specifically geared towards gaming and doesn’t include the fancy lighting action, but it is certainly worth consideration at this price. Get a closer look at the specs and details right here.
