Deal | 1 TB SK Hynix Gold S31 SATA SSD is on sale for US$79.04 until Sunday
Considered as one of the best SATA SSDs currently available on the market by both the media and home users, the SK Hynix Gold S31 is available on Amazon in 1 TB and 500 GB versions. However, only the 1 TB version is currently discounted and, given the price difference, there's little benefit in buying the smaller variant.
The SK Hynix Gold S31 is engineered using in-house 3D NAND memory, controller, and DRAM cache. It provides sequential speeds of up to 560 MB/s (read) and 525 MB/s (write). The reliability figures are nothing short of impressive, with 5 years of limited warranty, 600 TBW, and 1,500,000 hours MTBF.
The 17 percent discount that will last until Sunday, February 13, takes the 1 TB variant just US$7 higher than the 500 GB one. While the 500 GB SK Hynix Gold S31 has a price tag of US$72.02, its larger sibling — previously priced at US$94.99 — can be acquired for US$79.04. Unfortunately, the deal is only available for US customers. Those from other regions might see completely different prices (when accessing the page from Europe without a VPN, the price tag reads almost US$120).
