The Crucial X8 1TB portable solid state drive is down to $139.99 on Amazon. That's a nice low price for an SSD that normally sells for around $165 and often as high as $190. The X8 was actually down to $130 for Black Friday, but if you missed that sale this one is almost as good. It has never dropped below $165 until these deals, so you should grab one while you can.

The 500GB portable SSD is also on sale today. It's down to $105.99 from a street price of $120. That's also this SSD's second lowest price ever.

The other advantage over a regular hard drive is that SSDs don't have as many moving parts. They are by nature of how they work much less vulnerable to vibrations or the wear and tear that comes from getting bumped around all day, which means they make great portable companions. The X8 uses a very durable design with an anodized aluminum unibody core. It is drop proof from up to 7.5 feet and resistant to extreme temperatures, shocks, and vibrations.

Since the X8 has both a USB-C 3.1 Gen2 port and a USB-A port, it is compatible with a wide variety of platforms. Use it on Windows or Mac, the iPad Pro or a Chromebook, the PlayStation or the Xbox. The portable SSD is covered by a three-year warranty from Micron, the company that makes Crucial products. Users give it 4.7 stars out of 5 based on 24 reviews.
