Now's a great time to buy a cheap SSD

Today, PC builders have no excuses to no use SSD storage. Yes, hard disk drives may still be winning when it comes to cost per Gigabyte, but SSDs are now available for so cheap that there is little excuse not to be using one as your boot drive. 

In the UK, Crucial's BX500 480GB SSD is now available for £39.59, offering users plenty of storage potential for the same price tag as some 1TB HDDs. Yes, HDDs still offer more storage capacity, but the SSD has it beat in terms of speed. Crucial's 480GB SSD offers a great blend of storage speeds and capacity, making it an ideal candidate for your next boot drive or game drive. 

If SATA's too slow for you, Crucial's 500GB P1 SSD is now available for £54.57, offering read speeds and write speeds of up to 1,900MB/s and 950MB/s respectively over a PCIe 3.0 M.2 interface. While this is much more expensive than Crucial's BX500 SATA drive, it offers a boost of over 3x in sequential reads, which will be more than worth it if your PC has a spare M.2 slot.   

While the Crucial P1 is a QLC-based SSD, it still offers users great value for money. 

Now's a great time to buy a cheap SSD With today's SSD pricing, there is no excuse to not be using an SSD as your boot drive. PC gamers will also find this pricing great for fast/affordable game storage,
