The larger the capacity of the solid state drive, the bigger the price. Some of them can get insanely expensive when you start adding terabytes, but it's always nice when you can see the price drop down even just a little bit. Right now, you can get the Samsung 970 Evo Plus 2TB NVMe M.2 SSD on sale for just $206.99 at Newegg when you use the code 93XSG72. That's 10% off its $230 price, which is already a discounted price considering it was regularly selling for $290 as early as last September. While this doesn't quite beat what we saw on Black Friday (a drop to $200), it's only a few bucks off so still a solid deal. No one else has it for this low either, so Newegg is your way to save. This is a Shell Shocker deal, which means the coupon code is temporary.
Samsung 970 Evo Plus 2TB NVMe M.2 SSD | $23 off
Great read and write times to speed up your games and apps. Plus the 2TB capacity means you can store a lot of stuff. The price is as good as it gets outside of big sale days.
Change how fast you load your games or install your applications. The 970 Evo Plus can reach read and write speeds of up to 3,500 MB/s and 3,300 MB/s respectively. That's crazy fast compared to SATA SSDs and regular hard drives. Of course, the cost has to be considered, but at this capacity and with those speeds you'll see a definite improvement. I mean, regular hard drives only achieve speeds around 150 MB/s or so, just for comparison's sake. You might want one of those with a huge 10TB capacity or something, but for all the stuff you need right away get an NVMe M.2 SSD.
The SSD also comes with Samsung's free Magician software. You can use this to keep your drive up to date with the latest firmware. It also offers ways to protect your data. The dynamic thermal guard can be used to monitor the SSD's temperatures and keep it performing well even over a long period of time or while handling large loads.
