Update (11/30/2019): Black Friday is over, but the great savings on SSD storage continues over on our Cyber Monday SSD deals page. Check out our Cyber Monday tech deals page to see a list of the latest sales on everything from motherboards and processors to PCs. We also have dedicated Cyber Monday deal pages for monitors, CPUs, gaming laptops, Ryzen processors and Radeon graphics cards.
These days, there's just no reason to be booting off of an old-school, mechanical hard drive. Nor do you have to settle for a low-capacity SSD or one with poor performance. With Black Friday tech deals season in full swing and the price of Flash memory dropping like a rock, you can find a low-end, 500GB SSD for well under $50 or some of the best SSDs in 1TB capacity, including our top pick (the XPG SX8200 Pro ) for under $150.
SSDs aren't the only devices dropping in price. High capacity external hard drives, memory cards and USB flash drives are all at or near record level price lows. The best part is that each week we notice storage prices continue to plummet.
Below, we're rounding up today's best Black Friday SSD and storage deals.
