I imagine as we get closer to both black Friday, and the holidays, we’ll see more of these deals start popping up but it’s a good idea to start planning early if you’re in the market for upgrades. Credit to Guru3d for spotting this.

Not quite at the $200 mark, but very close at $214.99, Crucial has placed their 2TB 3D NAND SATA SSD drive competitively in the SSD storage market. The BX500 is their more affordably place line of 3d NAND offerings.

With games continually increasing in size, some are now averaging 80-150 GB, bigger and faster storage is becoming a must for those wanting decreased load times. On a tighter budget or perhaps only keep a few games installed then the 1TB models are priced at $114.99.

Some Specs:

  • SATA 6.0 Gb/s 540 MB/s Read, 500 MB/s Write
  • 2.5-inch internal form factor
  • Includes Acronis True Image Software
  • 3-Year Limited Warranty

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
