Deal | WD Black P10 Game Drive 5 TB USB 3.2 external hard drive drops below US$90 on Amazon
While mechanical hard drives have been replaced by SSDs in many use scenarios, the value provided by the old-school technology remains higher when trading speed for more storage space is not too much of a hassle. When it comes to affordable portable drives with 4 TB of storage space or more, finding a better deal than the 5 TB WD Black P10 Game Drive can be tricky due to the all-time low price of US$87.11 it just descended to on Amazon.
This 2.5-inch portable drive retails with an 18-inch SuperSpeed USB Type-A to Micro-B cable and is covered by a 3-year limited warranty. The 5 Gbps speed of its interface is obviously higher than the maximum speed of the SATA drive inside it, which tops around 130 MB/s, according to Western Digital.
The official product page mentions Windows 10+ and macOS 11+ compatibility, as well as PlayStation 4 Pro or PlayStation 4 with software version 4.50 or later, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S, and Xbox One. However, when used with the PS5 and the latest Microsoft consoles, it can only store games for them, but the speed provided allows gamers to play PS4 and Xbox One games directly from it.
Those interested in the smaller capacities can grab the 4 TB model for US$84.99 (35% down from US$129.99) or the 2 TB version, which goes for US$71.99. This external drive lineup is very popular on Amazon, with 43,837 user reviews validated, 748 answered questions, and a general rating of 4.7/5 stars.
