SSD deals are common for Prime Day, and we expect that trend to continue into 2021. More important than just having an SSD for you boot drive is having a sufficiently large SSD—with game sizes ballooning, we feel 1TB is the minimum for most PCs. Thankfully, you can readily find such sizes at reasonable prices, even if you're looking for M.2 NVMe drives.

The Intel SSD 665p isn't the fastest drive around, but for most users it won't really matter. It's more than fast enough, and the 665p series sports increase endurance even with QLC NAND. The 1TB drive has a five year warranty and 300TBW endurance, meaning you could write 164GB to the drive every day for five years.

Intel 665p 1TB NVMe: was $125 now $90
This is the lowest price we've seen on Intel's entry-level M.2 NVMe drive, sporting 1TB of capacity for SATA levels of pricing, with to to 2000 MBps speeds and 250K IOPS. Use code 2FTSTECH268View Deal

If you're looking for a cheap upgrade to your laptop's storage, the 665p also has good power characteristics so it won't hurt battery life. Performance does drop off under sustained heavy write loads, but that's mostly only going to happen if you're intentionally beating up on an SSD like in our reviews.

    $96 plus tax and shipping? Sold! I want to get a drive to fill the 3rd M2 slot on my motherboard so this is perfect!

    $8 won't make or break my bank account. Though I think I did buy my first 660P during that same sale.

    This deal is for the 665p, not the 660p.

    This is true. However...performance is pretty much the same.

    The real world performance difference between a decent SATA SSD and a PCIE4 NVME drive are negligible, so performance improvement should almost never be the driving factor in upgrading your storage for a desktop unless you're still using platters. 665p also has 50% better endurance, which probably won't mean much to most users either. At this point in time, $90 for 1TB NVME is a good deal.

    Guys...I was just making a comment on a great deal I got almost 18 months ago.
    No harm no foul.
