Compatible with a wide range of devices, from Windows PCs and Macs to gaming consoles and Linux-driven PCs, the Crucial X8 portable SSD can achieve read speeds of over 1,000 MB/s and features a rugged build that can handle dust, drops, or vibrations. The 4 TB version is now 54% off, so it goes for US$219.99 instead of US$479.99.

With a 54% discount, the 4 TB Crucial X8 portable SSD can be acquired for a wallet-friendly US$219.99 via Amazon. However, those who are happy with less storage and a lower price tag can go for the 2 TB version, labeled CT2000X8SSD9 and currently available for US$114.99 instead of US$219.99, thanks to a 48% discount.

Advertised as a PC and Mac-compatible storage accessory, the Crucial X8 also works with Chromebooks, Linux laptops and desktops, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, as well as other devices that use USB-C 3.1 Gen2 and USB-A connectors. This portable SSD features a durable design that is guaranteed to withstand drops up to 7.5 feet, extreme temperatures, dust, shocks, and vibration. Sadly, there is no waterproofing, so any contact with liquids should be avoided.

A very popular product family on Amazon, the Crucial X8 lineup received no less than 10,292 user reviews so far. The result of these reviews is a 4.6/5 rating, with 80% 5/5 scores and 11% 4/5-star assessments. The breakdown by feature highlights the drive's portability (4.8), storage capacity (4.7), reduced weight and quality of materials used (4.6), and goes as low as 3.8/5 for gaming performance and tech support.

In addition to the SSD itself, the retail package also includes one USB-C to USB-C (10Gb/s) cable and one USB-C to USB-A (5Gb/s) adapter.
