It looks like Black Friday is a great time to pick up a new SSD. A new, fast SSD can give your PC a major boost and is considered one of the best upgrades you can perform. Are you ready? Here are the Best Black Friday SSD Deals this year.
SK hynix Gold P31 1TB PCIe NVMe Gen3
The Gold P31 is a fairly new release and is the first SSD with 128-layer NAND. It’s extremely fast.
It’s got the best total read score of ANY Gen3 SSD on the market right now. It beats the WD SN750 and 970 EVO Plus in most categories.
At this price, it’s an absolutely steal and worth purchasing, since it usually goes for more than $220. It’s available in 500GB or 1TB size.
Samsung 970 EVO SSD 500GB
The Samsung 970 Evo is no slouch when it comes to M.2 NVMe storage either. It’s not as fast as the SK drive above (or the 970 Evo Plus), but for most people it should be sufficient.
It also has an extended warranty – which is a nice addition when purchasing storage. It’s a great deal if you need a 500GB SSD right now.
Samsung 860 EVO 2TB 2.5″ SATA3
If you’re still rocking an older SATA3 drive, you can still upgrade with a Samsung 860 Evo 1TB or 2TB drive. While it’s not as fast as one of the M.2 NVMe drives above, it’s a great upgrade for an older machine.
Western Digital 1TB WD Blue SN550 NVMe SSD
The Western Digital 1TB WB Blue SN550 is a decent NVMe SSD, however it’s not the fastest in benchmarks. However, it under $100 for a 1TB NVMe SSD, this is a great deal from a reputable brand.
Crucial P5 1TB 3D NAND NVMe Internal SSD
Crucial make some brilliant computer components, and the P5 1TB is a reliable SSD for your PC. It’s got some great results in benchmarks, a five year warranty and it’s available for a great price this Black Friday.
SAMSUNG T7 Portable SSD 500GB
If you need an external SSD for creating those important backups, the Samsung T7 500GB is currently available for less than $80.
At that price, it might just be worth having one on-hand. You never know when you might need it!
