With the 250 and 500 GB models currently at the same price in the sale, you may as well spring for the extra storage. Say goodbye to slow speeds. 

You can check out our in-depth review of the Samsung 870 EVO, but in short if you're looking for a SATA drive with great speeds, solid durability and a standard five-year warranty, then look no further.

The Samsung 870 EVO SATA SSD will offer fast and reliable performance for your everyday computing tasks, and while not the newest and fastest on the market, it's still one of the best for its price, especially at $39.99.

Another option included in the flash sale is the 980 PCIe 3.0 NVMe SSD 1TB.

Another great performing SSD drive from Samsung, without DRAM and using the PCIe interface rather than SATA. The removal of DRAM brings down the cost of this unit considerably but thankfully doesn't impact its performance one jot. Using Host Memory Buffer (HMB) tech, Samsung pulled off one of the first DRAM-free designs that can still perform as well as the 970 EVO Plus.

Whether you're in need of a SATA or PCIe SSD, both of the above deals are amazingly light on the budget, and you can't go wrong with Samsung who consistently deliver quality products. With the added comfort of the 5-year warranty of both these items, we think these are a couple of solid-state-deals.
