Black Friday, the shopping holiday that comes after Thanksgiving, may be a few weeks away, but Black Friday discount season is in full swing. We're still seeing great deals on SSDs (including some of the best SSDs) and hard drives, not only from Amazon but also from competitors such as Newegg. 

With the holidays approaching and SSD prices falling, this is a good time to upgrade your storage, whether it's adding a speedy new boot drive or adding a secondary drive that increases your capacity. 

This  is also a great time to look for Black Friday savings on external drives you can use for back up or transferring data between computers. If you don't already have a large external hard drive or SSD, you really should get one in order to do full system backups or just keep your important files somewhere besides the cloud. 

Below, we've listed the best Black Friday SSD deals that are available right now from any store on the web. Also, don't forget to check out our lists of the best black friday tech deals overall, best black friday monitor deals and best black friday gaming PC deals

Black Friday SSD Deals: What to Look For

Manufacturer - If you find a deal that's too good to be true from an unknown manufacturer, it's usually best to pass on it and hold out for a more reputable brand.

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.

SATA or NVMe? SSDs either use the SATA or NVMe interface, with the latter being as much as six times faster. However, you need to know which your PC supports. All 2.5-inch drives are SATA, but M.2 drives could be either NVMe or SATA interface. 

Capacity: 1TB seems to be the sweet spot for price and performance with decent NVMe drives going of around $100 or less and high-performance ones in the sub $150 range.  You can save money with a 512GB drive or, for an older PC with limited needs, a 256GB unit is dirt cheap.

Black Friday SSD Deal Tips

Each Black Friday SSD deal listed below was individually verified to ensure value. But don't just take our word for it- there are tools you can use to improve your research game.

We recommend using third-party applications to help research price history and compare SSD prices between vendors. Google Shopping and PCPartPicker provide useful comparison data, while CamelCamelCamel is ideal for checking Amazon price history.

    Today most SSDs are well grouped into ranges. Eg 1TB is between 110 and 140 Eur and saving 10 Eur on questionable manufacturer is under big question.
    Also what matters a lot is warranty. Difference between 3 and 5 years is 10 - 20 Eur. Think 5 years worth few Eur more.
    Also, DO NOT trust manufacturers and their numbers. There are a lot of sites with benchmarks showing real results. Copying huge files is not real example!

    But most important: Google before buy to see what others say!

    I agree. There are further differences: 2.5in vs M.2 (more pricey), SATA vs NVME (pricer), NVME 3.0 vs 4.0 (pricier), and certain products of a brand are alot more expensive even if the same interface and capacity is used.

    Wow, SSD prices in Europe must be alot higher than in America :(. Here you can easily find brand-name 1TB SATA SSDs for $100. Or 85 Euros?

    But the other side of the coin is you have free healthcare, much more paid vacation time, much more maternity/paternity leave, etc etc etc.

    I just purchased the Western Digital 4TB WD Blue for $371 on Amazon. I have wanted a larger SSD for game storage, replacing a Seagate 1TB HDD. Ended up paying .09 per GB.

    That is the most standard size (22mm x80 mm - ratio is about like a stick of gum) and the one used by all the M.2s on the list. Very few are made smaller than that (your laptop would probably accept the smaller ones too as they are just shorter).
