Deal | Samsung 870 Evo 4TB SSD gets 51% discount on Amazon
Although many tech enthusiasts already own a modern laptop or desktop computer that sports M.2 slots with PCIe support, countless budget-minded people are still using legacy hardware that is only compatible with 2.5-inch SATA drives like the Samsung 870 Evo. Thankfully, this specific group of users can now benefit from a corresponding deal for a very spacious 4TB SSD.
Amazon is currently selling the aforementioned Samsung 870 Evo, and more precisely the largest model variant with a huge capacity of 4TB, at a generous discount of US$252 or 51 percent in relation to the official but unrealistic list price of US$499. According to Camelcamelcamel's insightful price history, this deal for the Samsung 870 Evo almost matches Amazon's lowest price ever for the 4TB SSD, which was just very briefly available for US$1.50 less a few days ago. Alternatively, the 2TB version offers a better GB per dollar ratio as it is available at an even steeper discount of 58 percent.
Unlike the slightly cheaper sister model, which has also been put on sale last week, this storage solution is equipped with more reliable TLC instead of QLC NAND. Therefore, the 4TB SSD offers a higher endurance rating of 2,400 TBW, which should be more than enough even for users who are working with extremely large files on a daily basis. However, due to its SATA limitations, the solid-state drive has the same sequential read and write speeds of up to 560 and 530 MB/s, respectively. In the end, the Samsung 870 Evo is one of the best 2.5-inch SSDs on the market, and thereby remains a reasonable choice for buyers who don't have an M.2 slot available.
