You can install or replace an SSD in your portable Steam Deck. But it is undesirable to do this.



Valve recently unveiled the $ 400 Steam Deck handheld game console. For that money, you get a version with 64GB of flash storage and no additional SSD. But in theory, you can install an SSD yourself.

Valve has clarified the issue with the drive, saying that inside there is room for an SSD, but the format M.2 2230. This is a fairly rare form factor and the smallest of its kind. You can buy such an SSD separately at retail, but you have to look.

In addition, for some reason, Valve does not recommend users to install or replace an SSD on their own, and the reasons for this recommendation are unknown.

Recall that the version with a pre-installed 256 GB drive will cost $ 550, and for the top-end they will ask for $ 650, but each of these versions has a richer package than the previous one, which also needs to be borne in mind.

In any case, Steam Deck is much cheaper than most similar consoles, and sometimes more than half. And this is the main advantage of the console.
