Early Black Friday SSD Deals Roundup

Over the past number of years, Solid State Drives (SSDs) have quickly moved into the mainstream, with every price decrease pushing the technology into more and more systems, often replacing hard drives in mainstream systems thanks to their ability to offer faster boot times and file transfer speeds. 

Most newcomers to PC building and gaming should know that an SSD of any form can deliver a deliver a significant improvement to PC responsiveness when they are used as boot drives.  Game/software load times can be significantly reduced by using faster storage solutions, making SSDs a must-have item for most modern PCs, even if it is just to act as a bootable OS drive. 

Thanks to this week's early Black Friday deals, PC enthusiasts can now enjoy some spectacular SSD offers, with 240GB drives shipping for as little as £29. At these prices, no system should be without solid-state storage.

To start off, let's have a look at Intel's QLC-based 660p SSD, which offers a neat balance between value-for-money and high-end performance, utilising the NVMe protocol to deliver sequential read/write speeds of 1,500MB/s and 1,000MB/s (higher for 1TB or larger drives) while offering a price tag that is much lower than most SATA drives. 

At Overclockers UK, these SSDs are currently available for bargain prices, making them worth considering if you demand performance that exceeds SATA drives but don't want to break the bank by purchasing higher-end NVMe offerings.  

- Intel 660p QLC NVMe SSD 512GB - £89.99
- Intel 660p QLC NVMe SSD 1TB - £169.99
- Intel 660p QLC NVMe SSD 2TB - £299.99
