Amazon is now offering the Kingston XS2000 500GB Portable USB-C Solid-State Drive for
$74.99 shipped. Regularly $100, this is 25% off the going rate and a new Amazon all-time low. It might not be one of those popular SanDisk Extreme options or the new Samsung T7 Shield, but it is also more affordable and nearly as feature-rich. Reaching speeds comparable to the far more expensive pro-grade competitors at up to 2,000MB/s, it also supports USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 gear in a pocket-sized form-factor. An included rubber sleeve keeps it safe in your bag and when out in the field alongside a shockproof design that is resistant to water and dust, according to Kingston. Head below for more details.
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a portable SSD with the kind of specs today’s featured Kingston model boasts at under $75.

While not nearly as fast, it will still deliver a reliable USB-C solution to your setup in a similarly compact package for $60 shipped.
If you’re in the market for some internal SSD storage, the price drops we are tracking on the speedy Seagate FireCuda 530 models are certainly worth a look. Now starting from $100, you’ll find both standard and heatsink-equipped options at new all-time lows for your PC rig or PlayStation 5 upgrade.
