Grab a 2TB Samsung 990 Pro SSD for $179: Real Deals

Real Deals

After last week's World Backup Day, the deals on storage drives continue. We saw some impressive discounts on SSDs and external HDD drives primarily from Western Digital and today we have some fantastic discounts on Gen 4 SSDs from Samsung. 

Not to be outdone, Samsung has lowered the price of the Samsung 990 Pro 2TB to $179. This a superb deal for the most recent of Samsungs Gen 4 M.2 SSDs as this drive pushes the boundaries of Gen 4's bandwidth speed with sequential read/write speeds of 7,450 and 6,900 MBps respectively. Newer Gen 5 SSDs are slowly trickling onto the playing field with even faster speeds, but unless you want to upgrade your PC to accommodate them, this is the next best thing - and far cheaper.

Another 2TB SSD from Samsung, but this time the 980 Pro is down to just $142. It's a little bit cheaper than the 990 Pro and with the same capacity, but just a little slower. The 980 Pro is also Gen 4.0, but with read/write speeds of 7,000 and 5,100 MBps. This drive has been on our list of Best SSDs for a long time thanks to its performance and sustained write speeds.

If you've been looking for a resin 3D printer to get creative or expand your existing creative repertoire you're in luck as we've spotted this amazing deal on the Anycubic Photon Ultra Resin 3D Printer for $279. Thanks to a rather generous $120 coupon, the price of this printer has fallen from $399 to a much more attractive $279. Faster and quieter than the previous Anycubic Photon model, the Ultra will turn your ideas and designs into reality.

    I thought it was the 980 drive. The issue is resolved from happening further, but it doesn't retroactively repair the bad areas of the drive. It only prevents further degredation. Bottomline, update the firmware as soon as you install the drive in your PC.

    I wasn't aware that the release actually fixed the issues across the board. I hope so as I really like Samsung drives. They have been the 'easy button' for selecting a decent or better option.

    I am not sure, I have not heard about the efficacy of the firmware update. I thought it was a fix, correct me if I am wrong.

    Everything I have seen is that it is fixed going forward but if you had the drive running before installing the firmware it caused degradation that can't be fixed. Just one more reason to never by the absolute newest thing out there.

    I think it was both the 980 Pro and 990 Pro.

    A firmware fix was released last month. I've repeatedly tried searching for users with units that still degrade after applying the update, and haven't found any. If you find any that still have issues with the drive, then please reply to this message.

    980 Pro isn't exactly new. It came out towards the end of 2020. What's more interesting is that the affected firmware is old like release firmware old, which raises the question of why this is issue is coming to light now. My 1 TB 980 Pro shipped with the problematic firmware when I got it back in early 2021. The latest firmware has been out for almost a year.
