Today at Amazon, the Crucial P3 2TB SSD is marked down to one of its best prices yet. This SSD usually goes for around $100 but right now is marked down to $88. It’s a PCIe Gen 3 SSD that uses 3D NAND. It comes in a range of capacities starting at 500 GB and getting as big as 4TB, however, this offer is only for the 2TB edition.

All of the drives in this line have an M.2 2280 form factor. We reviewed the Crucial P3 SSD when it debuted last fall and overall appreciated it. It’s supported with a good warranty and already had a low price point before today’s discount. This drive would be well-suited as a secondary drive for many users.
