Need more Storage? Here are some of Amazon's best Black Friday SSD Deals
With games getting larger and PC-based projects and software packages becoming ever larger, there is always high demand for fast solid-state storage. Yes, mechanical storage devices do offer more Gigabytes of data for ever pound spent, but if you want to access your data quickly, SSDs are the way to go.
This Black Friday week, a lot of great SSD deals are available at Amazon, be it for budget-oriented drives of higher performance models. This is especially true if you are looking for high capacity drives, which should be music to the ears of anyone with a large game library, or large workstation projects.
These offers are only available to Amazon Prime members, whether they are taking advantage of Amazon's free 30-day trial or are full paying Prime members. Remember, if you are subscribed to Amazon Prime Video, you are also an Amazon Prime Member. You can subscribe to Amazon's Prime service here, with new members getting their first 30 days on the service for free.
Value SATA SSDs
Not every PC needs the uber fast storage speeds of NVMe drives, and not all PCs have enough spare M.2 slots to meet your storage needs. If your PC or laptop is on the older side, it may not even have an M.2 slot to utilise.
SATA-based SSDs still have a solid position within today's SSD market, be it as a fast secondary storage medium, or as a worthwhile upgrade for older HDD-based laptops and PCs.
Value M.2 NVMe SSDs (PCIe 3.0)
Most of us want something that's fast, but relatively inexpensive. A min-max option that delivers great value for money and impressive performance levels. These SSDs are some of the most min-maxy options of today's SSD market, offering users fast speeds and pricing that is similar to SATA-based SSDs.
High performance M.2 NVMe SSDs (PCIe 4.0)
If you want the fastest levels of storage performance, you should be buying a PCIe 4.0 SSD. These SSDs are amongst the fastest available, though it is worth noting that there is a notable speed difference between high-end PCIe 4.0 drives and their lower-end counterparts.
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.
