Crucial X8 Portable SSD review: An affordable USB drive for mainstream users

 

Crucial's X8 Portable SSD is slick-looking, and equals or betters the competition in most tests. But it's not the drive for very large data sets.

Comparatively affordable ; Fast for everyday operations ; Long warranty and high TBW rating

Slows drastically writing off cache to 80MBps

I like the look and feel of the Crucial X8. It’s a great performer the vast majority of the time, and as much as I’m bound to inform you of the slow performance off cache, I can also tell you that I wouldn’t hesitate to use the drive myself.

Crucial X8 Portable SSD Review: a Speedy Value (Updated)

 

QLC helps make this a fast, affordable external.

Low cost per GB ; Competitive performance ; Large write cache ; Removable cable and USB-C to USB-A adapter included ; Low heat output

Slow write speed after write cache fills ; Lacks encryption support

The Crucial X8’s burst performance rivals even the highest-end USB 3.2 Gen 2 portable SSDs on the market, so it offers a lot of value for those in search of a high capacity SSD with cheaper QLC flash.
