Pair Lexar’s new 2TB 2,000MB/s portable SSD with Mac, iPad, or iPhone 15 at the $169 low – 9to5Toys

Earlier this month, Lexar debuted its new Mac-, PC-, iPad-, and iPhone 15-ready portable SSD, and now it’s at its best price ever. The new Lexar 2TB SL500 Portable Solid-State Drive is currently going for $169.49 shipped at Amazon. Regularly $230, this is over 25% off the going rate, delivering $60.50 in savings and the lowest price we can find. While we did see a special $200 launch price, as well as an offer at just over $170 thereafter, you’re now looking at the best price we have ever tracked on the new pro-grade solution from the brand. Ready to ingest 60FPS 4K Apple ProRes footage directly from iPhone 15 Pro, it will indeed also work as a typical portable SSD via a USB-C connection. Our launch coverage details the feature set, and you’ll find more down below.  
The Lexar 2TB SL500 Portable Solid-State Drive is the latest from the brand, delivering high-end specs ready to handle full-quality footage directly from your device alongside USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 support. It can reach speeds up to 2,000MB/s and features Lexar DataShield 256-bit AES encryption packed into a metal form-factor that “easily fits in your pocket.” A 5-year warranty and  USB-C cable are also included in the package. 
As of right now, there is no 1TB model for the SL500 – a 4TB version is slated for later this year – to bring spending down. You could, however, go for some of the latest releases in the Crucial portable SSD lineup to do so. Starting from $80 on the X9, or $113 on the Pro X10 with comparable specs as the SL500, both are solid ways to save some cash for folks who can make do with the 1TB capacity.
