A few of Samsung’s ultra-fast SSD variants are currently being discounted this Memorial Day, in which Samsung says: "As some cloud companies begin charging for some photo storage, now’s the perfect time to invest in an SSD". For example, the 970 EVO Plus 1TB variant is being sold at $20.09 off, making the usually $169.99 product available for just $149.90, the larger 2TB SSD is also being discounted at a relatively lesser $20 off making the usually $329.99 drive available today for $309.99. However, the smaller 256GB and 500GB drives currently do not have a discount.
- Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB now $149.90 (list price $169.99) 12% off
- Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2TB now $309.99 (list price $329.99) 6% off
The 970 EVO Plus SSD boasts impressive read and write speeds, with the company touting speeds of 3,500MB/s and 3,300MB/s, respectively, under ideal conditions. Naturally, the 2TB variant is expected to perform slightly better than the lower storage offerings. While the SSD is based on PCIe 3.0 – unlike the latest 980 Pro –, it offers a great choice for those that want to snag an additional drive for their new PCIe 4.0 PC builds without shelling more for storage or upgrade their storage for older builds.
Amazon is also discounting the 1TB variant of the 980 Pro today, normally costing $229.99, it can now be ordered for $199.99 which is a savings of $30 (13%). The smaller 500GB variant is also seeing a discount, it can be had for $119.99, which is $30 (20%) off its usual $149.99 list price. The PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD boasts sequential read and write performance levels of up to 6,900MB/s and 5,000MB/s, respectively. Amazon also sells other storage sizes of this drive, but as of writing only the 1TB and 500GB variants are on a discount at Amazon.

If you're in the market for some 2.5" SSD internal storage, then Amazon has you covered, with each storage size getting a discount today. However, the largest discount can be found on the smallest solid state drive, with the 1TB option now going for $99.99, which knocks 17% off its normal $119.99 asking price. Other drives clock in at around $100 per TB with today's discount applied, which isn't too shabby.
