One of Amazon's Gold Box deals of the day features a collection of drives from SK Hynix that are all on sale with some hitting all new low prices. For example, you can get the SK Hynix Gold P31 500GB M.2 NVMe internal solid state drive for just $59.99. That's $15 off its regular price and a match for its lowest ever, a match we've only seen once before. The drive was selling for as much as $122 last year, so it's nice to see it not only return to normal but also get a discount.
SK Hynix is not exactly a name brand in the world of hard drives and SSDs, but we have shared deals from them before. And even if you haven't heard of them, you're probably using something they make right now because SK Hynix is one of the world's largest producers of semiconductors and memory. Usually what they make goes into your phone or laptop and you never see it.
The Gold P31 drive got 4.5 stars out of 5 during our review. Cale Hunt said, "Its performance beats out a lot of direct competition, including the mighty Samsung 970 EVO Plus, and it's available at a truly impressive price." It's also an extremely power efficient drive, which makes it great for laptops.
Get read and write speeds up to 3,500 MB/s and 3,200 MB/s respectively thanks to SK Hynix's Hyperwrite cache technology. The drive has also been stress tested to survive up to 1,200 terabytes written.
SK Hynix covers the drive with a five-year warranty.
