Deal: The blazing-fast 2TB Crucial P5 Plus NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD is on sale for US$199 at Amazon
Fast SSD storage usually does not come cheap, especially for PS5 gamers who would like to expand the rather puny internal storage of their precious gaming console in order to have more than just a handful of games readily available. Sony officially requires a quick NVMe PCIe 4.0 drive for the PS5 storage expansion, and a new deal on Amazon now presents a great opportunity to pick up a compatible 2TB SSD.
Amazon currently sells the popular Crucial P5 Plus SSD with 2TB of storage capacity for a very reasonable price of just US$199 instead of the rather astronomical list price of US$320. According to the price-tracking website Camelcamelcamel, this is even the lowest price ever for the 2TB variant of the Crucial P5 Plus SSD on Amazon. Shipping is free for Prime members and regular customers.
According to the official spec sheet, the 2TB Crucial P5 Plus delivers sequential reading and writing speeds of up to 6,600 MB/s and 5,000 MB/s respectively, while the endurance is rated at 1,200 TBW. This fast NVMe PCIe 4.0 drive further comes with a limited 5-year manufacturer warranty, and PS5 gamers will need to attach a separately bought heatsink in order to comply with Sony's official requirements.
