A solid state drive offers the perfect solution for storing your personal files safely. Not only are they much quicker and smaller than hard disc drives, but they're also way more dependable. The only downside can be the cost, as SSDs tend to be a bit more expensive than HDDs. Buying when a deal is available could end up saving you a huge wad of cash.

There are a few different kinds of SSDs to consider when you're looking for a deal: internal SSDs which you install inside your computer and external SSDs that you can plug into various computers and use on-the-go. For those who choose to go with an internal SSD, you'll have to pick between a SATA or NVMe model. While NVMe is typically a faster (and pricier option), you'll want to be sure you're choosing the right option for your computer's setup. Some computers aren't internally suitable for NVMe SSDs without some sort of adapter so you'll want to keep that in mind when placing an order.

Coming across excellent SSD deals can be tough if you don't know where to start looking. Luckily, we've done all the leg work for you. Below you'll find the best SSD deals and sales on internal and external models that are available this week; be sure to check back later if you don't see an offer that's enticing enough just yet, as we'll be keeping this guide regularly updated.
