There’s good news for folk who missed out on incredible SSD deals back in the summer as many of those price drops are reoccurring for Black Friday week.

Hot on the shelves this morning is the 4TB Crucial P3 Plus. Its price has been reduced to £163.99 at Amazon UK. That’s the lowest we’ve seen to date. There’s a similar 17% reduction in the US, where said drive is listed as a $179.99 Black Friday Deal.

While not the absolute quickest by today’s standards, Crucial’s PCIe Gen 4 SSD will hit sequential read and write speeds of up to 5,000MB/s and 4,200MB/s, respectively. There’s also the added benefit of a five-year warranty from a reputable brand, and with 4TB of storage, P3 Plus is ideal as a secondary storage drive.

We’ll be keeping a close eye on SSD deals in the days ahead, but don’t feel the need to wait until Friday as many manufacturers are moving early to maximise the sale event. A number of Crucial models are reduced, and if you’re out of M.2 slots, it’s worth mentioning the tried-and-trusted 4TB MX500, a SATA drive retailing for a new low of £159.99.
