The Crucial X8 1TB Portable Solid-State Drive is currently available for purchase on Amazon for the price of $89.99. This model’s price ranged from $150 to $165 over most of the previous year before dropping to its current normal price of $120 in 2022 when purchased straight from Crucial. The price of $85 for this item today is both the best we have seen and the lowest price that we have found on Amazon that is not part of a one-day special. This model offers noteworthy value, as was noted in our previous piece for the best portable SSDs that are currently available, and it now comes in roughly $40 cheaper than the equivalent SanDisk 1TB Extreme.
