Phenomenal drops in NAND flash prices in the second half of 2022 are filtering through to retail and not a day goes by without excellent SSD bargains grabbing our attention.

It’s a great time to be in the market for a new drive, and there’s no need to skimp on capacity as even 4TB SSDs are now effectively half price. 1TB is likely to be the sweet spot for a lot of users, and you can pick up highly competent drives for less than the cost of a night out.

Right now, it’s hard to beat the value proposition of Kingston’s 1TB NV2. A modest drive by today’s standards, this PCIe 4.0 solution delivers speeds of up to 3,500MB/s for a mere £38 / $49. That’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen!

Providing stern competition to the Kingston is the tried-and-trusted 1TB Samsung 970 Evo Plus, now available for £55 / $60. Despite employing an older PCIe 3.0 interface, Samsung’s drive touts the same peak speed of up to 3,500MB/s but benefits from the addition of 1GB onboard DRAM cache. Both the Evo Plus and NV2 tout an identical 1.5-million hour MTBF, though while the Kingston is backed by a three-year warranty, Samsung ups the amount of cover to five years as standard.

Prefer a little more storage oomph? Not a problem, take a gander at the 1TB Samsung 980 Pro. Reduced to £90 / $100, this speedy M.2 drive will hit lofty speeds of up 7,000MB/s and is PS5 compatible. Better still, there’s a heatsink included in the box, making it an effortless upgrade for the Sony games console.

1TB Samsung 980 Pro

“The 980 PRO Series is optimized for speed. It delivers read speeds up to 7,000 MB/s, 2x faster than PCIe 3.0 SSDs and 12.7x faster than SATA SSDs.”
