Deal | Samsung 980 Pro PCIe 4.0 SSD discounted by up to 58% on Amazon
The Samung 980 Pro doesn't really need an introduction for most tech enthusiasts, since the superfast PCIe 4.0 SSD is one of the most popular solid-state drives on the market today. Fortunately, the South Korean company's sought-after storage solution has seen massive price cuts over the past few months, and that welcome development has now culminated in a very compelling deal on Amazon.
More precisely, Amazon is currently offering the 2TB version of the Samsung 980 Pro for just US$159.99 including free shipping, which constitutes a hefty 58 percent or US$220 discount in comparison to the M.2 SSD's official list price. Meanwhile, the more affordable 1TB model of the Samsung 980 Pro received a slightly smaller discount of 52 percent or US$110, which brings its price down to US$99.99. Both deals practically match Amazon's lowest price ever for these PCIe 4.0 drives according to Camelcamelcamel.
There are good reasons why the Samsung 980 Pro is such a popular SSD, as it can reach high sequential speeds of up to 7,000 MB/s while reading and up to 5,100 MB/s while writing. Therefore, the NVMe module is fast enough to meet Sony's official requirements for the PS5 storage expansion. The PCIe 4.0 is further covered by a limited five-year manufacturer warranty, and the endurance of the 1TB and 2TB variants stands at 600 and 1,200 TBW, respectively. For less than US$160 on Amazon, the 2TB is a particularly appealing bargain for users who are still in the market for a spacious and very fast SSD.
