Thanks to a very generous discount of 61%, the 2 TB Samsung 980 PRO M.2 PCIe 4.0 SSD, model MZ-V8P2T0B, is now available on Amazon for US$149.99 down from a list price of US$379.99. However, a US$5 coupon is also available to apply at checkout, so the final cost would be an even more tempting US$144.99.

Since its arrival on Amazon, which took place on January 26, 2021, the Samsung 980 PRO lineup amassed no less than 24,788 user reviews and over 1,000 answered questions. This well-known family of PCIe 4.0 SSDs has seen multiple discounts in the past and now the 2 TB version is again very close to its lowest price ever of US$140.99 which was recorded on April 5, 2023.

According to the popular price tracking platform Camelcamelcamel, the 2 TB version (model MZ-V8P2T0B) reached its top price of US$429.99 on July 22, 2021, and has an average price of US$189.38 (based on the last 50 price changes recorded). Today, this SSD can be acquired for US$149.99 (61% down from a list price of US$379.99), but there is also a US$5 coupon that can be applied at checkout.

The result of the user reviews mentioned earlier is a score of 4.8/5 stars, which comes after no less than 91% perfect scores and 6% 4/5 ratings. Those who missed these SSDs so far should know that each of the models currently listed on Amazon (500 GB, 1 TB, 2 TB) also comes in a version with heatsink that is compatible with the Sony PlayStation 5 console.

Another member of the Samsung 980 PRO lineup that is currently discounted by a generous 61% is the 1 TB model with heatsink (MZ-V8P1T0CW), which dropped from US$229.99 to US$89.99.

The maximum sequential read speed of these SSDs can hit 7,000 MB/s, while sequential writes go up to 5,100 MB/s. The maximum random read/write performance has the same limit of 1,000K IOPS. These drives come covered with a 5-year limited warranty and have endurance values of up to 1,200 TBW (for the 2 TB model with heatsink).
