Samsung’s 980 Pro M.2 SSD offers a premium spec list for a less-than premium price — AES 256-bit encryption, a software suite to get the best out of it, a reliable nickel-coated thermal controller and read/write speeds up there with the best.
As you can read in our review, we're big fans of the Samsung 980 Pro M.2 NVMe SSD, which packs serious speed, AES 256-bit encryption and effective thermal control into a compact M.2 2280 form factor with a consumer-friendly five-year warranty.
Across all of our testing, this ranked highly amongst competitors — loading Final Fantasy XIV in under 10 seconds and offering significant improvements in efficiency over the 970, thanks to the move from 14nm to an 8nm manufacturing process.
One of our main criticisms was the higher cost of this drive, which is made moot by this deal. Be quick — this expires at the end of the day.
