Like summer itself, Amazon Prime Day sales are sizzling hot. Case in point: the Samsung 870 Evo, our current top pick for the best SATA SSD. Right now, you can pick up this fantastic drive at rock-bottom prices, with the 500GB model going for a mere $30—and the other capacities are on deep discount, too.
When it launched, the 870 Evo’s list price was more than double what you’ll pay today. Besides the 500GB model going for just three Hamiltons, the 1TB model ($60), 2TB model ($100), and 4TB model ($170) are at their all-time lows, too. Thanks to lower demand for SSDs and oversupply, we’re getting to enjoy absolutely killer bargains on the top performers.
Speaking of—when we reviewed the 870 Evo, we called it the best performer in its class. Thanks to its zippy read/write times, it earned a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and an Editor’s Choice Award from us. Rated for sequential read speeds up to 560 megabytes per second, and sequential write speeds up to 530 MB/s, this drive lives up to its specs, both when handling small and large files. There are no compromises with this drive, as you’d encounter if you opted for a cheaper model, like the Samsung 870 QVO.
Whether you’re looking to finally replace a hard disk drive to rev up your old PC or just expand your storage, this is a very hot deal. Prime Day lasts until July 12, but deals can sell out before the event is over. Don’t wait to pick up one of these drives—or any other incredible SSD on sale right now, if the Samsung 870 Evo isn’t to your taste.
