The week of Cyber Monday is well underway and you can score some deals on PC parts to upgrade your existing rig. Samsung's 970 EVO Plus SSD is discounted right now for Black Friday, costing just $150. For a 1TB lightning fast SSD, this is a great deal. This deal is also available in the UK!
$170 $20 off
NVMe SSDs are superior to SATA SSDs in many ways, particularly transfer speeds. This 970 EVO Plus drive from Samsung can hit speeds of up to 3,500MB/s.
This deal also covers the 2TB variant of the Samsung 970 EVO Plus with 20 percent off. 1TB is more than enough for your operating system and apps, though if you already have a speedy system drive, this NVMe also makes for excellent PC game storage. Samsung offers such great value at full price, we gave the Samsung 970 EVO Plus a glowing review.
As you can expect from Samsung SSDs, you're not only getting some of the best transfer speeds around, but also solid reliability. This is all backed by a five-year warranty, making this low price even more enticing — and this SSD hasn't been this affordable before.
