Amazon is now offering the Lexar SL660 Blaze 512GB Gaming Portable External Solid-State Drive for $99.99 shipped. Regularly $130, this is a 23% price drop, a new Amazon all-time low and the best price we can find. You’ll also find the 1TB edition down at $169.99 shipped, another Amazon all-time low down $30 from the regular $200 price tag. This USB-C model delivers a particularly speedy 2,000MB/s transfer rate with support for USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 gear and NVMe performance to stand out from most gaming-focused drives out there. Alongside the aluminum enclosure with a sandblasted finish for “added protection, shock and vibration resistance,” the SL660 Blaze also includes a removable stand for desktop use, USB-A and USB-C cables, a carrying pouch, and built-in RGB lighting. More details below.
If you don’t mind going with a hard disk drive solution to store your game library and the like, take a look at the more affordable WD_BLACK 2TB P10 Game Drive. This one doubles your storage for a fraction of the price at $65 shipped on Amazon. It’s not going to deliver the same level of speed when it comes to transferring files, but it does include compatibility with just about all modern consoles as well as a 3-year warranty.
