SSDs are all the rage these days thanks to dwindling pricing and super-fast transfer rates, but venerable mechanical drives still hold sway when considered on a cost-per-TB basis. A great case in point is the WD Black 5TB P10 Game Drive now available at a bargain price.
Boasting an attractive chassis protecting the 2.5in spinner, Amazon has dropped it to an incredible $91.98, representing 39% off the usual ticket price. Can’t go wrong with spending just $18.40 per juicy terabyte.
Great for holding games or movies, you can store well over 100 without breaching the capacity, and nowhere will you find an SSD that can rival this drive’s capacity versus cost.
Offering sequential read speeds of up to 130MB/s, it’s no slow coach, while the predictable nature of platter-based drives means you’re unlikely to run into slowdowns sometimes observed on cheaper SSDs.
I have personally owned this very drive for over a year now, and it’s not skipped a beat as a dependable repository for game backups and videos. WD has enough confidence to provide a three-year warranty, too.
