Amazon's Best Black Friday SSD Deals
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.
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.

All of the SSDs below lack heatsinks, so PlayStation 5 users should invest in a compatible heatsink if they plan to use these drives to upgrade their PlayStation 5 consoles.
- WD_BLACK SN850 500GB PCIe 4.0 SSD - E59.99

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
