These PS5 deals see up to $120 off external hard drives

Amazon’s PS5 deals are currently offering some of the console’s fastest external hard drives at very competitive rates today. 

Some of the best PS5 external hard drives have seen their prices slashed significantly in everything from budget models to more premium plug-in SSDs. The largest discount is reserved for the perennially popular SanDisk Extreme Portable 1TB at only $129.99 (was $250) (opens in new tab). This drive has briefly been cheaper once over the Winter Sales events, but we’ve never seen that rate bettered since, and that’s what makes these PS5 deals worth paying attention to. 

On the budget side of the spectrum is the Crucial X6 1TB for $89.99 (was $110) (opens in new tab). It’s our number one pick for the best budget PS5 external hard drive and remains a solid go-to option for anyone wanting fast sequential performance without breaking the bank. This portable SSD has endured a very turbulent pricing history in recent memory, often zig-zagging between the $100 and $130 mark. You’re saving a minimum of $10 extra here, despite this not being the lowest-ever rate, so we think it’s more than a justified price. 

PS5 external hard drives are some of the best PS5 accessories that you can get. Keep in mind, however, that unlike internal PS5 SSDs, these models cannot natively play your PS5 games, but they can store them ready to be copied over far faster than downloading again.
