Amazon’s major sale event has come and gone, but don’t worry if you missed out, there are still plenty of bargains to be found, particularly if you’re in the market for a new SSD.

Prices on 4TB drives are dropping fast, and if you don’t need something quite as quick as, say, a WD_Black SN850X, conventional SATA drives remain a fine choice for high capacity and low cost. Our pick of the bunch today is the Crucial MX500 4TB, whose price has fallen to another all-time-low of £158.99.

Speeds top out at 560MB/s on account of the SATA 6Gbps interface, and we know what you’re thinking, isn’t Crucial’s 4TB P3 M.2 SSD a much better, much faster choice at £150.99? Sure, if you happen to have a spare M.2 slot, but for folk with only SATA ports available, the MX500 is excellent as a secondary drive or laptop upgrade, and comes backed by a five-year warranty from a trusted brand.

With prices as they are, 2TB is quickly becoming the minimum most enthusiasts should consider, and with game installation sizes being what they are, 4TB just offers a whole lot more peace of mind. At the very least, those still clinging to a mechanical hard disk can make the move to a vastly superior SSD without having to sacrifice too much in the way of capacity.
