Samsung’s best SSDs are finally going cheap this week, with some returning to Black Friday prices

After last week's big sale on WD Black SSDs, this week's big SSD deals are all about Samsung. After weeks of prices inching higher and higher or just plain refusing to budge whatsoever, prices for Samsung's best SSDs have finally started to fall in the US. There are big discounts to be had on our current favourite, the 860 Evo, and their top-end 970 Evo…

Feature: The best budget NVMe SSD just got even better

WD’s Blue SN550 SSD is disgustingly good value

When the WD Blue SN500 came out last year, it went straight into my best gaming SSD list thanks to its low price and great read and write speeds. It was the perfect SSD for those on a budget, but the one thing it lacked was a cheap 1TB model. Thankfully, WD have rectified this for the latest version of its budget-friendly gaming SSD, the…

WD Black P50 review: a tough SSD that’s a real bruiser on price

There have been more and more portable SSDs supporting the new USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard cropping up over the last couple of months. First, we had the Samsung T7 Touch, the latest, touch sensor-secured successor to the Samsung T5. Then there was Crucial's X8, which was a smidge faster than the T7 Touch and cheaper to boot. Now, WD's Black P50 has finally landed…

WD’s Black SN750 SSD is almost back down to its Black Friday price this week

SSD deals hunters have been spoiled for choice in recent weeks, with savings to be had on everything from 1TB SSDs to half-price NVMe drives. Today is no different, as Amazon UK have got the excellent 500GB WD Black SN750 (the non-heatsink version this time) for £77 right now, which is only around £7 more expensive than it was over Black Friday. The 1TB model…

WD’s Black SN750 SSD is almost half price right now

There's simply no stopping the SSD deals train this week, as today there are more great savings to be had on a bunch of really rather good WD Black and Blue SSDs and HDDs over on Amazon US at the moment, including almost 50% off the heatsink version of their excellent WD Black SN750 drive. Normally $150 for the 500GB model, you can now bag…

Feature: A Crucial bit of kit

Crucial’s X8 is finally a worthy rival to Samsung’s portable SSDs

External SSDs can seem a bit of a luxury compared to the infinitely cheaper selection of external hard drives out there these days, but if you're after a small, portable drive that definitely won't break when you chuck it in a bag, then an external SSD like Crucial's X8 is well worth shelling out for. Indeed, after the fussy Samsung T7 Touch I tested last…

Feature: That, and the fact it costs an absolute fortune

Samsung’s T7 Touch is great-looking external SSD let down by its fussy fingerprint reader

The Samsung T7 Touch is the latest member of Samsung's portable SSD family. Like the Samsung T5 before it, this titchy drive has a lovely, sleek aluminium chassis that's roughly the same size as a couple of stacked credit cards. Only now it has a fancy fingerprint reader for extra security and supports the nippier USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard, leading to sequential read and…

Feature: Slow and steady wins the race

WD Black P10 review: Can this portable HDD compete with a portable SSD?

We all know the drill by now. Hard disk drives (or HDDs) are slow but cheap. SSDs are fast but expensive. We can often justify the latter if we're getting a small, internal drive for installing things like Windows or a couple of games on, but once you're into the realms of 2TB and above in SSD land, you're going to need to start handing…

Our best budget NVMe SSD is getting a new, faster 1TB model

Thanks to its low price and nippy read and write speeds, the WD Blue SN500 has been one of the best solid states to come out this year. The one thing it's missing, however, is an equally good value 1TB model. Thankfully, WD have heeded those cries for a budget-friendly 1TB SSD and are about to introduce their new Blue SN550 SSD, which not only…

WD Black SN750 Heatsink review: Do you need a heatsink on your next gaming SSD?

When WD first announced they were redesigning their top-tier Black NVMe SSD to look more gamer-friendly earlier in the year, I must admit that I rolled my eyes a bit. After all, what could you possibly do to an SSD the size of a chewing gum stick that would make it look tangibly different to any other chewing gum stick-sized SSD? Well, in the case…

Samsung’s T5 SSD is already cheaper than it was over Black Friday

Oh lawd, I thought the deals were finally over, but those sneaky folks at Samsung have just gone and started another better-than-Black-Friday deal on their external Samsung T5 SSD. From now until December 25th in the UK, you can claim £90 cashback on the 2TB model of the T5, taking its usual price of £270 down to just £180 - which is a heck of…
