Best SSD and Hard Drive Deals 2024

Best SSD and Hard Drive Deals

Upgrading your computer's SSD is a game-changer, giving you more performance, more capacity, or both. Whether it's picking up a speedy new boot drive or adding secondary storage that increases your capacity, you can find some amazing deals on the best SSDs.

Not only are retailers eager to clear out inventory, but prices on Flash memory have fallen in recent times. The result: some really strong SSD deals. We're now seeing decently fast 2TB SSDs for less than $100 and 4TB models for less than $200. High-performance drives like the Samsung 990 Pro, our favorite PCIe 4.0 SSD, don't go for much more.  

But don't be fooled: not every drive is worthy of your money or a place of honor in your PC.  That's why we've listed the best SSD deals below. Many of these drives are listed on our SSD Benchmark hierarchy so you can see how they stack up to the competition. You can also track the latest SSD prices on all the key drives, even if they are not on sale.

SSD Deals: What to Look For

  • SATA or NVMe: SSDs either use the SATA or NVMe interface, with the latter being as much as six times faster (or more). All 2.5-inch drives are SATA, but M.2 drives could be either NVMe or SATA interface, though the latter is now rare. If you have a desktop or laptop that was built in the last 5 years, it almost certainly supports NVMe, which is faster. As SATA is old news, most of the best SSD deals are on NVMe drives.

  • 2.5-inch or M.2: Most internal SSDs are either 2.5-inch or M.2 form factor. 2.5-inch drives connect to SATA ports and can replace old-school mechanical hard drives. M.2 drives look like RAM sticks and plug into dedicated M.2 ports. You won't find that many deals on 2.5-inch drives, but they can be useful for bulk storage as many motherboards have a ton of SATA ports but only two M.2 slots.

  • PCIe 3, 4 or 5: If you're buying an NVMe SSD, you can choose among PCIe 3, 4 or 5 interfaces with speeds increasing from a maximum of around 3,500 MBps sequential reads and writes to 8,000 MBps and 14,000 MBps. At this point, PCIe 4 drives are mainstream and offer the best value. PCIe 5 drives are extraordinarily expensive, require a newer-gen platform that supports them, and also generate a fair amount of heat. We're seeing the best SSD deals on PCIe 4 drives which is the best standard for most people.

  • Capacity: 2TB seems to be the sweet spot for price and performance, with decent 2TB, PCIe 4 NVMe drives going for around $80 or less and high-performance ones in the sub $130 range. If you can splurge, go for a 4TB drive, which could cost anywhere from $150 for a low-end drive, up to $250 for a high-end one. If you really need to save money, a decent 1TB drive can cost $50 or less. However, the top SSD deals this year are definitely on 2 and 4TB capacities.
