Swapping out your old HDD for a new SSD drive is one of the quickest and easiest ways to speed up the performance of an older PC, but now there’s an even newer option for computers and video game consoles. An SSHD, or solid state hybrid drive, takes the killer performance of a solid state drive and makes it fully compatible with HDD to create a high-capacity drive that’s still affordable. How affordable, you ask? Amazon just began carrying two new SSHDs from Seagate and you can grab one for as little as $70.

Some key details:

  • The thinnest and highest-capacity 2.5-Inch Hard Drive available
  • Choose 7mm – 500GB, 1TB and 2TB capacity options – for easy-to-upgrade laptop/mobile storage
  • With 3TB and 5TB capacity options, the 15mm barracuda 2.5-Inch Hard Drive allows you to easily store most of your games, music, movies and more
  • Highest-capacity 2.5-Inch drives on the market for DIY external box setup for upgrades – SATA 6GB/s interface optimizes burst performance
  • Multi-tier caching technology delivers snappy performance with lower power consumption
