Crucial P5 1TB: was $149.99, now $119.99 @ Amazon
Crucial’s P5 NVMe SSD offers decent read/write speeds of 3,400/3,000 MBps respectively, premium specs like hardware-based AES 256-bit encryption and a generous 5 year warranty — all at an impressive price point.

Back when we reviewed the Crucial P5 SSD review, we praised its encryption and extensive software suite. We were also happy to see a blackout aesthetic that helps the drive blend in well with most builds.

Under optimal conditions, this drive can reach read/write speeds as fast as 3400/3000 MBps. According to the specs, it's guaranteed with 600TB Total Bytes Written (TBW) of endurance, plus it also has a five year warranty.

There are trade offs, however, such as the hot temperatures it puts out (maybe slot this drive under a motherboard’s built-in heat sink), meaning it may not quite live up to the the markets best SSDs. But with this discount, it certainly provides great value for money with, making it a worthwhile investment into solid state storage.
