SK hynix recently made a move into the consumer solid-state drive (SSD) market, and the result has been beneficial for desktop and laptop users who need to upgrade their storage. The Gold P31, an M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD, is available in a 500GB or 1TB version, and both are discounted for Black Friday week savings at Amazon. If you've been waiting to get your hands on new storage, you can right now save more than 50%.

SK hynix Gold P31 | Up to 55% off

Choose from either 500GB or 1TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs, discounted by up to 55% thanks to an instant discount and an additional 15% coupon that must be applied at checkout.

The SK hynix Gold P31 SSD received a Windows Central Recommended Award in our review, noting that it already brought a ton of value at full price. Considering the 500GB version is down to about $64 after all coupons have been applied, this is an incredibly affordable deal. If you'd rather go with the larger 1TB drive, you're still only going to pay about $115. Just be sure to check the coupon box below the price on the main product page.

The SK hynix Gold P31 has 128-layer 4D NAND and a proprietary Cepheus controller, managing excellent performance while sipping power. You can expect read speeds up to about 3,500MB/s and write speeds up to about 3,300MB/s, which are both top-tier results that compete with the best SSDs on the market.

Not only are these drives fast, they're also reliable. Both the 500GB and 1TB versions come with a five-year warranty, and the Terabytes Written (TBW) rating is generous. The 500GB model has a 500 TBW and the 1TB model has a 750 TBW, which means you'd have to write about 400GB per day to the larger drive to hit the theoretical ceiling before the warranty expires.

If you're shopping for PC upgrade components this Black Friday, you really don't want to miss this deal. The Gold P31 M.2 SSD works with laptops and desktops, and it's never been more affordable. Just be sure to hit the extra 15% off coupon on the product page.
