Amazon's Prime day event is over but but there are plenty of SSDs deal to snap up. Solid-state storage are some of the most heavily discounted products we've found so far, with supremely tasty deals on already low priced products. It's a dream for anyone looking to upgrade or expand.

We're already seeing a fair chunk of Amazon's SSD inventory knocked down in price. But that's far from all we're seeing. There are also plenty of discounts across other retailers looking to match Bezos, and we're dropping all the great SSD deals we find below for your perusing pleasure.

In terms of buying advice, we're mostly looking at 1TB and above SSDs nowadays. Modern games are, uh, massive, and you'll quickly fill up any sub-terabyte drive, especially if it's also your primary boot drive.

In terms of performance, it's still namely PCIe 4.0 drives that offer the best bang for your buck today, though you'll have to check your motherboard for compatibility. You won't get the benefits of a faster drive if your machine isn't compatible, but you can still use a faster drive limited to slower speeds in an older board.

We'll be curating the best SSD deals we can find all the way through to Black Friday in November and beyond, so make sure you check out what we've spotted in our Black Friday SSD deals page.

Amazon Prime Day SSD deals in the US

WD Black SN770 | 500GB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 5,150MB/s read | 4,900MB/s write | $69.99 $39.99 at Newegg (save $30)

WD Black SN770 | 500GB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 5,150MB/s read | 4,900MB/s write | $69.99 $39.99 at Newegg (save $30)
This PCIe Gen 4 drive is an excellent buy for $40, the cheapest I can recall ever being. It may not be as speedy as some top SSDs today, but you could do much worse for a simple boot drive upgrade. It can get a little warm, but with the cash you're saving, you can always grab a heatsink to help. Otherwise, any good motherboard or case cooling suits the job well.

Price check: $52.40 Amazon

Sabrent Rocket 2230 | 512GB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 5,000MB/s read | 3,700MB/s writes | $59.99 at Amazon

Sabrent Rocket 2230 | 512GB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 5,000MB/s read | 3,700MB/s writes | $59.99 at Amazon
This compact 2230 form factor 512GB drive is a great middle-ground for Steam Deck upgrades. Add the price of this and the $399 64GB Deck together, and you still save $160.01 over buying the top tier Deck. That's with well-improved read/write speeds, too.

Price check: $74.99 Newegg

WD Black SN850X | 1TB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 7,300MB/s read | 6,300MB/s write | $159.99 $59.99 at Amazon (save $100)

WD Black SN850X | 1TB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 7,300MB/s read | 6,300MB/s write | $159.99 $59.99 at Amazon (save $100)
This is our favorite SSD for gaming right now. Unlike the cheaper SN770, the SN850X encapsulates the best PCIe 4.0 offers in terms of performance (check out our review). That makes it a great fit for a boot drive with space to spare for your game library, and at this price, we're happy to pay the premium for its higher speed.

Sabrent Rocket 2230 | 1TB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 4,750MB/s read | 4,300MB/s write | $89.99 at Amazon

Sabrent Rocket 2230 | 1TB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 4,750MB/s read | 4,300MB/s write | $89.99 at Amazon
This is a very high-capacity version of our favorite 2230 form factor NVMe SSD for the Steam Deck. While you are paying a premium for handheld compatibility, pairing this with the cheap Steam Deck would save you cash over the top capacity Deck and net you double the storage space.

Price check: Newegg $109.99

Crucial P3 Plus| 2TB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 5,000MB/s read | 4,200MB/s write | $189.99 $89.99 at Amazon (save $100)

Crucial P3 Plus| 2TB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 5,000MB/s read | 4,200MB/s write | $189.99 $89.99 at Amazon (save $100)
This Crucial P3 Plus isn't the fastest PCIe 4.0 drive out there but you're getting a decent amount of storage for the money. Most of the time the speed deficit isn't an issue whereas space on the drive often is.

Lexar NM790 | 2TB | PCIe 4.0 | 7,400MB/s read | 6,500MB/s write | $124.99 $99.31 at Amazon (save $25.68)

Lexar NM790 | 2TB | PCIe 4.0 | 7,400MB/s read | 6,500MB/s write | $124.99 $99.31 at Amazon (save $25.68)
Lexar has put together a superb SSD in the NM790, and the best bit is it's surprisingly cheap. Thanks to high layer NAND and a low-power controller, you can get tons of storage here on an energy-efficient drive for not much cash. Often much less cash than the competition, even. Read our Lexar NM790 (4TB) review for more.

Nextorage Japan | 2TB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 7,300MB/s read | 6900MB/s write | $249.99 $99.99 at Newegg (save $150)

Nextorage Japan | 2TB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 7,300MB/s read | 6900MB/s write | $249.99 $99.99 at Newegg (save $150)
This is a high-end PCIe 4.0 drive for a little over the price of much more mainstream drives. The read/write speeds here are rather phenomenal: the Nextorage can reach the upper echelons of PCIe 4.0 bandwidth at 7,300MB/s read and 6,900MB/s write. If you can spare the cash, I'd make the leap to the Nextorage.

Price check: Amazon $106.99

TEAMGROUP MP34 | 4TB | NVMe | PCIe 3.0 | 3,500 MB/s read | 2,900 MB/s write | $179.99 $149.99 at Amazon (save $30)

TEAMGROUP MP34 | 4TB | NVMe | PCIe 3.0 | 3,500 MB/s read | 2,900 MB/s write | $179.99 $149.99 at Amazon (save $30)
This last-gen Teamgroup 4TB SSD isn't super fast, but it's a great affordable (roughly the same price as a new 2TB NVMe SSD) option if you require a reliable secondary drive to store and archive a bunch of media and games. 

Lexar NM790 | 4TB | NVMe | PCIE 4.0 | 7,400MB/s read | 6,400MB/s write | $209.99 $172.58 at Amazon (save $37.41)

Lexar NM790 | 4TB | NVMe | PCIE 4.0 | 7,400MB/s read | 6,400MB/s write | $209.99 $172.58 at Amazon (save $37.41)
This has swiftly proven itself one of the best ways to stuff 4TB inside your gaming PC. You can read up why in my Lexar NM790 review I published very recently, but the short version is it's as fast as the fastest PCIe 4.0 drives yet rather cheap.

Samsung T7 Shield | 1TB | USB 3.2 Gen2 | 1,050 MB/s read | 1,000 MB/s write | $159.99 $79.99 at Amazon (save $80)
Samsung's external drives have a better recent history than its internal SSDs, so we've no hesitation in recommending the T7 for any professional looking for a large amount of storage that can be safely taken from place to place. They're designed to be rugged and fast, a potent combo. Oh, and they are available in three colors.

Crucial P3 Plus| 1TB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 5,000MB/s read | 4,200MB/s write | £41.40 at Amazon

Crucial P3 Plus| 1TB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 5,000MB/s read | 4,200MB/s write | £41.40 at Amazon
The Crucial P3 Plus is a proper PCIe 4.0 SSD, with speeds well in advance of what any PCIe 3.0 drive can offer. And at this price, it's giving you a whole lot of fast SSD storage for not a lot of pennies.

Seagate FireCuda 530 | 1TB | NVMe | 7,300MB/s read | 6,000MB/s write | £69.23

Seagate FireCuda 530 | 1TB | NVMe | 7,300MB/s read | 6,000MB/s write | £69.23 £55.99 at Amazon (save £9.24)
There are cheaper 1TB drives out there, but the Seagate FireCuda 530 counters this by being one of the fastest you can get. You'll need a CPU and motherboard that both support PCIe 4.0 to reach its full potential, though.

Kingston NV2 | 2TB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 3,500MB/s read | 2,800MB/s write | £154.46 £75.99 at CCL (save £78.47)

Kingston NV2 | 2TB | NVMe | PCIe 4.0 | 3,500MB/s read | 2,800MB/s write | £154.46 £75.99 at CCL (save £78.47)
It's slow for a PCIe 4.0 SSD but pretty much as quick as any PCIe 3.0 drive. And you're getting 2TB of still relatively speedy game storage for that price. If you need the speed for 4K movie editing, etc., a more expensive drive would do you well, but for games, this 2TB SSD will still be a great option.

WD Black SN850X | 2TB | NVMe | 7,300MB/s read | 6,600MB/s write| £113.47 at Amazon

WD Black SN850X | 2TB | NVMe | 7,300MB/s read | 6,600MB/s write | £113.47 at Amazon
This one's definitely worth a look for our favourite SSD in its perfect config. No heatsink is included here, although this Gen4 PCIe SSD doesn't run as hot as its predecessor. And man, is it something to behold speed-wise? This is definitely on the high end for PCIe 4.0 drives.

Lexar NM790 | 4TB | NVMe | PCIE 4.0 | 7,400MB/s read | 6,400MB/s write | £190 at Amazon

Lexar NM790 | 4TB | NVMe | PCIE 4.0 | 7,400MB/s read | 6,400MB/s write | £190 at Amazon
It's a lot of money to spend on a storage drive but it's actually great value for money. You can read up why in my Lexar NM790 review I published very recently, but the short version is it's as fast as the fastest PCIe 4.0 drives yet rather cheap.
