Update: Amazon has also dropped the Crucial X8 4TB model down to $249.99 shipped. Regularly $370 or more over the last few months, this marks the return to the Amazon all-time low for the first time. The specs are otherwise the same as the 2TB model below.
Amazon is now offering the Crucial X8 2TB Portable Solid-State Drive for $129.99 shipped. Originally launching at over $300, it carried a regular price of $190 for most of last year before dropping into the $140 range several times over the holidays in 2022. After seeing a drop to $130 at the top of the year, Amazon has now brought back that deal price to match the best we have tracked on this model. For comparison’s sake, the comparable and popular SanDisk 2TB Extreme model sells for $160 at Amazon while just 1TB of the brand’s latest PRO-G40 goes for $280 (full review here). The X8 delivers a more than respectable USB 3.2 Gen2 setup that can move data at up to 1,050MB/s with USB-C connectivity. It landed as one of our top bang for your buck picks last year with an anodized aluminum core, 7.5-foot drop protection, and compatibility with a wide range of platforms and devices.
