Although only discounted by 13%, the 4 TB Silicon Power XS70 (model number SP04KGBP44XS7005) NVMe PCIe Gen4 SSD is now at the lowest price it had on Amazon. While its current list price is US$329.99, back in early March 2022, this PlayStation 5-compatible SSD was available for no less than US$749.99.

Featuring a unique heatsink design that provides excellent heat dissipation and thermal management, the Silicon Power XS70 is a PCIe Gen 4x4 SSD fully compatible with the Sony PlayStation 5 console, but also a good choice for use in PCs. With an all-time high price of US$749.99 on Amazon (according to Camelcamelcamel), the 4 TB model is now down to US$329.99. However, this price is the result of a modest 13% discount, which applies to a list price of US$379.99. Based on the last 39 changes, the average price of this SSD is US$500.08.

The technical highlights of the SP04KGBP44XS7005 model include sequential write/read speeds up to 7,200/6,800 MB/s, an estimated MTBF of 1,600,000 hours, and a 5-year limited warranty. This drive also has a freely available software companion, namely SP Toolbox. This piece of code allows the user to run benchmarks, check detailed device information such as used space, temperature, and TBW value, and more.

After 325 validated user reviews, the Silicon Power XS70 lineup has a 4.5/5 rating on Amazon. This value comes after 77% perfect scores and 12% 4/5 assessments, but also 7% minimum scores. The breakdown by feature highlights six attributes, namely tech support (4.0), gaming performance (4.1), storage capacity and ease of setup (4.2), as well as reduced weight and value for money (4.3).
