The South Korean company’s high-end PCIe 4.0 SSD has dropped to another record low as e-commerce behemoth Amazon is currently selling both the 2TB and 1TB model variants of the Samsung 980 Pro for their lowest prices thus far.
Another day, another SSD sale. Storage-hungry laptop and desktop PC owners who have patiently postponed their much-needed SSD upgrade are being rewarded with a plethora of quite compelling deals these days. For instance, Amazon’s latest offer for the Samsung 980 Pro results in a brand-new all-time low for the sought-after M.2 solid-state drive.
Specifically, the spacious 2TB SKU of the Samsung 980 Pro can now be ordered at a considerable discount of almost 70 percent in relation to its original list price of more than US$400, which results in an intriguing sale price of US$129.99 including free shipping. Camelcamelcamel’s price tracker shows that this is the lowest price ever for the 2TB SSD, and the same can be said of the 1TB model of the Samsung 980 Pro which is now available for US$59.99. Therefore, the smaller drive offers an even better price-capacity ratio of just 5.9 cents per gigabyte, while the more spacious model comes in at 6.5 cents per GB.
Both versions of the Samsung 980 Pro can reach sequential read speeds of up to 7,000 megabytes per second, and the 2TB SSD is just marginally faster than its 1TB counterpart at sequential writing processes, which can hit up to 5,100 MB/s. Additionally, these two drives have an endurance of 600 and 1,200 TBW, respectively, and are further covered by a five-year warranty. As with many current Samsung M.2 SSDs, new owners should make sure to update the firmware of their new PCIe 4.0 module as some older versions have caused accelerated wear which resulted in some premature failures.
