You can get the 2TB version of the Samsung 980 Pro NVMe solid state drive on sale for a new low price of $249.99 at Amazon. This drive has been selling for around $330 since last year with jumps as high as $350. It has never gone as low as today's deal, and its previous next best price was around $280. While this may be a little too much drive for most people, if it is something you're interested in there has never been a better time to buy than now.
Top of the line in both speed and capacity. It might be a little much drive for your average user, but if you're a creative type or someone who needs a lot of space to work with for whatever reason, then this is an SSD you should consider, especially at this price.
In our review, Richard Devine said, "If you're looking to build your PC with the best possible storage then you should always consider a Samsung SSD and the new 980 Pro is absolutely no exception. It has all the trademarks of other Samsung SSDs like incredible quality, intuitive software, and a great warranty backed up by one important party piece. The Samsung 980 Pro offers truly astonishing performance."
Thanks to the PCIe 4.0 interface and NVMe technology, you get some of the fastest speeds yet on a Samsung SSD. It has read and write speeds up to 7,000 MB/s and 5,100 MB/s respectively. That's crazy compared to where SSDs were at just a couple years ago. It's also twice the data transfer rate of a PCIe 3.0 interface, although it is still compatible with that version if that's what you got.
This is not a simple drive meant for casual people. It has Pro in the name for a reason. This should appeal to the extremely tech savvy, the hardcore gamer, and more. It has really high-performance bandwidth and throughput for heavy application use. There is also reliable thermal control with nickel coating to help manage the heat levels. It also has a heat spreader label for thermal control of the NAND chip.
Grab yours while you can because this price won't last long.
