WD_BLACK multi-platform 500GB D30 Solid-State Game Drive back to Amazon low at $60

Reg. $79+ $60

Amazon is now offering the WD_BLACK 500GB D30 Solid-State Game Drive for $59.99 shipped. This model typically fetches $100 at Best Buy where it is now matched at the lowest price we can find. And while it does carry a regular price of $79 directly from Western Digital these days, it is now back down to the Amazon all-time low for the first time. While it’s not quite as fast as the popular Samsung T7 for example – that one sells for $70 in the 500GB capacity – it does provide a gaming-focused design and is now sitting at quite a competitive price tag nonetheless. Alongside the metal-plated build, it delivers compatibility with all major console platforms as well as PC to expand your portable gaming storage without breaking the bank. You can use the drive as storage for PS5 and Series X|S titles, while previous-generation console titles can be played directly from the drive. Head below for more details. 

As we mentioned above, when it comes to brand name 500GB portable solid-state drives, today’s $60 deal price is quite a notable one. For comparison’s sake, the Crucial X6 500GB Portable SSD that runs at about half the speed is now selling for the same price. One model worth pointing out here though is the Kingston XS2000. The 500GB variant sells for just $5 more than today’s lead deal with more modern specs and significantly faster transfer rates at up to 2,000MB/s. 

On that note, we are also still tracking the newer model WD_BLACK P40 500GB RGB gaming SSD at a new Amaonz all-time low of $66 shipped. While a slightly more pricey option, it does clock in at 2,000MB/s and delivers notable RGB lighting as well. Get a closer look at this offer right here and swing by our hands-on review for more details on the user experience while you’re at it.
