Deal | Samsung 990 Pro SSD with 4TB gets biggest discount thus far on Amazon
Unlike some directly competing flash-storage storage solutions from Western Digital and other manufacturers, Samsung's flagship 990 Pro series of SSDs originally topped out at a rather meager 2TB. Fortunately, the South Korean tech behemoth has recently remedied this disadvantageous situation by releasing a new 4TB SKU of the quite popular 990 Pro.
With an official list price of US$350, the 990 Pro with 4TB of storage capacity debuted at a fairly lofty price considering that most other PCIe 4.0 SSDs were on sale for less than US$300 at that point in time. However, Amazon has now put Samsung's lightning-quick M.2 module on sale for its lowest price yet as a much-needed 19 percent discount takes US$65 off the original MSRP and results in a more reasonable price of US$279 including free shipping. Alternatively, the 2TB Samsung 990 Pro is also on sale for an attractive price of US$129 at Amazon.
While the brand-new 990 Pro version obviously offers twice as much storage as the former top-of-the-line model, the NVMe drive still features the same sequential read and write speeds of up to 7,450 MB/s and 6,900 MB/s, respectively. Just like the capacity, the LPDDR4 cache of the SSD also doubled to 4GB, and the same applies to the life expectancy of 2,400 TBW. Admittedly, owners of a laptop or desktop with two M.2 slots are still getting a better value with the well-known 2TB model of the Samsung SSD, but users who desperately need 4TB of storage in a single module can now take advantage of this notable discount.
