Now we're talking, a real gaming drive for real gamers. With great PCIe 3.0 read and write speeds, the SN750 is a great pick for a boot and main storage drive, and it's 38% off right now. Unfortunately the larger capacities are sold out, but the 500GB version is still a good deal.View Deal

Samsung 970 Evo 1TB NVMe SSD | $179.99 $149.99 at Amazon
This limited time deal sees Samsung's more than capable 970 Evo NVMe SSD discounted by 17%. Not a huge discount, but as a fan favourite a price cut only makes this great drive that much better.View Deal

Amazon Prime Day SSD deals - SATA

SK Hynix Gold S31 1TB SATA SSD | $159.99 $83.99 at Amazon

SanDisk SSD Plus 1TB SATA SSD | $108.85 $87.99 at Amazon
The SanDisk SSD Plus is a great little storage drive to expand your gaming PC's capacity. We'd recommend a faster NVMe drive as a boot drive, if you can, but this offers cheap and reliable storage for everything else.View Deal

Samsung 860 Pro SATA SSD 512GB | $149.99 $99.99 at Amazon
If you want the best SATA performance, you're likely looking for a Samsung drive. You'll have to pay for the privilege, but at least this Samsung 860 Pro is 33% off right now.View Deal

Amazon Prime Day External SSD deals

Samsung T7 Touch Portable SSD 1TB | $229.99 $159.99 at Amazon
This mid sized SSD boasts read speeds of 1,050MB/s, and write speeds of 1,000MB/s. That's double the speed of the T5, but with an extra novelty feature to consider: It's also fingerprint protected. It's not that much bulkier than the T5, and will still fit snugly into your pocket (unless you wear ladies trousers—please can we have some larger pockets up in here?)View Deal

Samsung T5 Portable SSD 2TB | $279.99 $236.24 at Amazon
This ones got a little more space to pack your files in, but read and write times are slower. It clocks in at 404MB/s read and 400MB/s write speeds, which is half as fast, but with double the storage space. Your call, really.View Deal

Crucial X8 Portable SSD 1TB | $189.95 $149.95 at Amazon
A speedy alternative to Samsung's lot, which is also pretty reasonable in price right now. This one clocks in with read/write speeds of 1,050MB/s and 1,000MB/s respectively. It's got a low heat output, and is also a pretty durable piece of kit.View Deal

SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD 1TB | $164.32 $139.39 at Amazon
A rugged SSD here, with a rubber chassis and an IP55 rating—useful if you ever drop it in your drink. Just in case you're climbing rockfaces to get your data where it needs to be, it has a hole perfectly sized for a carabiner clip... It clocks in at around 560MB/s read and over 500MB/s write speeds, and comes with a 3 year warranty.View Deal

SanDisk Extreme PRO Portable SSD 1TB | $279.99 $154.99 at Amazon
With the same rigid, water resistant chassis as the above, but with throughput just south of 1000MB/s this is even more of a steal. This also comes with a USB Type-C cable, and a Type-A adaptor and has a 5 year warranty included in the price.View Deal

Titanium One Portable External SSD 1TB | $158.99 $129.99 at Amazon
A 3D NAND flash disk, spitting up read/writes of just over 430Mb/s. Not the greatest, but the IP66 rating is reassuring, with the USB connector safely tucking into a little waterproof nook, complete with suave cable routing (love it). Plus, there's a 3 year warranty, to boot.View Deal

Dave has been obsessed with gaming since the days of Zaxxon on the Colecovision, and code books for the Commodore Vic 20 (Death Race 2000!). He built his first gaming PC at the tender age of 16, and finally finished bug-fixing the Cyrix-based system around a year later. When he dropped it out of the window. Thankfully it's a lot easier to build a gaming rig now there are no motherboard jumper switches, though he has been breaking technology ever since… at least he gets paid for it now.
