Valve's Steam Deck is a portable console offering handheld PC gaming wherever you are, supporting thousands of compatible games initially designed for Windows and the potential for custom installations of almost anything else.

Available with 64GB of storage in its cheapest model, it's easy to run out of space. Luckily, Samsung makes the perfect expansion card for Steam Deck, with the 512GB EVO version discounted by 53% to $39.99 at Amazon and a smaller 256GB alternative reduced by 25% for just under $30.

The Samsung EVO range of SD cards offers up to double storage space for your Steam Deck at a considerable discount, and they're perfect for Valve's portable PC gaming handheld.

There's a reason Samsung tops my list of the best SD cards for Steam Deck, alongside the EVO Plus as the non-Amazon variant. Closely matching the maximum read and write speed potential for external storage on the console, they're an ideal solution for cutting down the console's asking price.

They're easy for me to recommend whenever there's a sale on high-end microSD cards since I use one daily with my own 256GB Steam Deck. It barely takes any effort to get started with external storage, with my straightforward instructions on how to format an SD card on Steam Deck covering everything you'll need.
