We've come across some cheaper SSDs in the last few weeks, but none of this capacity from a reputable vendor. As part of the best holiday tech deals, Crucial's 2TB MX500 SATA SSD, available for $200 on Amazon, its lowest price ever. Consider this: at launch, the 1TB unit was selling for $260.

In our March 2018 Crucial MX500 review, it came out as one of the best SSDs in its price category, so we can wholeheartedly recommend this deal. 

Crucial MX500 2 TB SATA SSD: was $230, now $200

At $200, the Crucial MX500 offers one of the few high-capacity SATA SSDs from a reputable vendor at a low price, making this deal quite hard to pass up.

Crucial's 2TB MX500 can read at up to 560 MBps and write at up to 510 MBps for sequential loads, with a 95K and 90K read/write IOPS rating. They also support hardware-based AES 256-bit encryption, meaning you can use them with encryption software, such as Microsoft's BitLocker, without any adverse effects.

So say it with me: 2TB for 2020.
