Samsung’s 1TB 980 Pro SSD returns to an all-time low of $140

Maybe you were finally able to get your hands on a PS5 not so long ago, but now you’re quickly running out of space on it. Now is a good time to invest in an SSD that can expand your console’s storage, as one of our favorites from Samsung is back on sale at an all-time low price. The Samsung 980 Pro 1TB drive is 33 percent cheaper, down to $140. A few other drives that we recommend from brands like PNY, Patriot, and Crucial are also on sale right now.

Typically priced at $210, the Samsung drive comes in a compact M.2 form factor and supports read speeds of up to 7,000MB/s. It uses a special thermal control algorithm and nickel plating to control the heat level and a heat spreader label to control the temperature of the NAND chip. It is also compatible with Samsung Magician, a management software that allows you to monitor the overall health and keep it up to date.

The biggest problem for PS5 owners is that the drive’s default configuration doesn’t come with a heatsink, which you need to install inside the console. However, you can currently get the SSD with this heatsink for just $170, which is 26 percent off the normal price.

Also on sale is our favorite PS5 SSD, the Patriot Viper VP4300: the 1TB version is priced at $130 and the 2TB model is $255. This drive supports sequential read speeds of up to 7,400MB/s and comes with a pre-installed heatsink so it’s ready to use with the PS5. If you’re on a tighter budget, a couple of Crucial and PNY drives might be a better fit. Crucial’s 1TB P5 Plus SSD is 20 percent cheaper, down to $128, while PNY’s 1TB XLR8 CS3040 SSD is a whopping 42 percent off, down to $105.
