Amazon's Best Black Friday SSD Deals

Every PC user needs a solid SSD. They are the primary reason behind the shorter boot times and faster loading times of modern systems. For PC enthusiasts and gamers, SSD storage is vital for making our apps snappy, offering faster loading times and near-instant access to files. Even the latest gaming systems have moved exclusively to SSD storage, relegating older mechanical storage devices obsolete. 

Amazon's Black Friday deals have now started, and included with them is a large number of SSD deals and promotions, ensuring that everyone can access SSD storage at low prices, even the ultra-fast PCIe 4.0 variety. 

Below we have included some of the best SSD deals that are currently available on Amazon. For free delivery, buyers must be an Amazon Prime subscriber, with Amazon Prime being free for the first week to new users. 

SATA SSDs

SSD storage can be split into two categories for PC builders, with SATA SSDs offering significantly faster read/write speeds and access times than HDDs while typically shipping with lower per TB pricing. While M.2 SSDs are faster, the number of M.2 slots available on most PCs is limited. Beyond that, many older PCs lack M.2 slots, making SATA-based SSDs your only viable option. 

These SATA SSDs from Samsung deliver the best price/performance/capacity on Amazon today. 

- Samsung 870 QVO 1TB SATA 2.5-inch SSD - £60.99

Samsung 870 QVO 2TB SATA 2.5-inch SSD - £116.99


Samsung 870 QVO 4TB SATA 2.5-inch SSD - £221.49

PCIe 3.0 M.2 NVMe SSD

M.2 SSDs offer the highest performance levels offered by modern SSD storage solutions. While today's fastest SSDs are based on PCIe 4.0, PCIe 3.0 SSDs can offer better pricing and more than enough performance for many modern workloads. In many cases, 2TB PCIe 3.0 SSDs can be purchased for less than some 1TB PCIe 4.0 SSD models, though whether or not this is a worthy trade-off depends on the performance needs of your system. 

PS5 users should note that none of the below SSDs are compatible with Sony's PlayStation 5 console. PlayStation 5 users who want to upgrade their consoles should invest in PCIe 4.0 based storage solutions. 

Samsung 980 500GB M.2 PCIe 3.0 SSD - £39.99

- WD_BLUE SN570 500GB PCIe 3.0 M.2 SSD - £42.99


Crucial P2 1TB M.2 PCIe 3.0 SSD - £61.99

SSD Enclosure

Let's be honest. Most USB thumb drives are trash. If you are handling large files, you don't want to be transferring them from system to system using slow USB thumb drives. That's why external SSDs are an excellent option for those who want fast storage on the go. On top of that, these solutions can be used to create great external storage solutions for the latest consoles. 

While these two enclosures are not a Black Friday deal, they are great options when paired with the above SSDs. Note however that the M.2 drive solution is limited to USB 3.2 Gen 2 speeds (10Gbps), which means that using overly fast M.2 SSDs within this enclosure is a waste of money. 

Yes, you can buy pre-built solutions like this, but making it yourself is a great way to save money, especially if you have a spare SSD lying around. 
 
- Sabrent 2.5-inch HDD/SSD Enclosure - £8.99
- Sabrent USB 3.2 Type-C M.2 SSD Enclosure - £28.99

Well mum needed a new phone her sony xperia M really shows it's age, the lack of space and general speed and battery life is by modern standards pretty poor.

I took a look at a fair few phones in the price range she was willing like all mums doesn't treat herself often at all.

After a good look and having decided 128gb and 5g while not rolled out fully was going to be the key things to look at, there really wasn't a whole lot of choice and i dare say the prices were generally the norm.

But after some looking decided on the oneplus nord 5g it only came out last year and while it said £100 discount it most likely was a normalish price tbh but even slightly lower end oneplus's were the same price so out of them bunch was the better deal.

really didn't seem worth shelling out the extra £50 for 4gb more ram and twice the storage since the phone is completely overkill for her use, but it should at least last pretty well.

so she got the blue one with the blue case and i have the fun of setting it all up for her as tech isn't her strong point lol

It's a decent phone thou and one i'd looked at myself until i got the iphone 13 mini at least it was discounted and was the best of the bunch even if the price isn't so different as it was thursday lol.Quote

For that price, it's still a steal... I remember when I purchased my then newly released Samsung 970 EVO 2TB. Man, that was expensive. 8 times more expensive than that Crucial drive of yours.Quote
