Deal | 1TB Samsung 870 Evo SSD receives 33% discount and hits lowest price yet on Amazon
The SanDisk Plus and Crucial MX500 aren't the only 2.5-inch SATA SSDs that have experienced considerable price cuts over the past few weeks. Their direct competitor from South Korea, the Samsung 870 Evo, is also becoming more and more affordable, which is a consumer-friendly price trend that has now culminated in a quite enticing deal for the 1TB variant on Amazon.
More precisely, the Seattle-based online retailer currently offers the Samsung 870 Evo with 1TB of storage capacity for US$59.99 including free shipping, which corresponds to a significant discount of 33 percent or US$30 relative to the official list price of this 2.5-inch SSD. According to Camelcamelcamel's price tracker, this is Amazon's lowest price ever for this version of the Samsung 870 Evo, but alternatively, this SSD deal is also available at Best Buy.
Being a cost-effective SATA SSD, the Samsung 870 Evo features sequential read and write speeds of up to 560 and 530 megabytes per second, respectively. Furthermore, this 1TB storage solution has a 1GB LPDDR4 DRAM, an endurance rating of 600 TBW, and the 2.5-inch drive is also covered by a limited five-year manufacturer warranty. As usual, please note that faster PCIe 3.0 modules can be had for similar prices, which means that this SSD deal is best suited for users of older machines or as a storage expansion for systems whose M.2 slot is already occupied.
