Amazon is now offering the WD_BLACK 1TB D30 Portable External Solid-State Game Drive for $114.99 shipped. Regularly $170 at Best Buy and more like $150 at Amazon, this is at least $35 off the going rate and the lowest we have ever tracked on Amazon. The portable SSD is compatible with Xbox, PlayStation, and PC setups with an up to 900MB/s speed rating to “help minimize long load screens” and the like. While it will work just fine for running PS4 titles, it’s better off as a portable storage system when it comes to high-end PS5 titles and the like.
