It's World Backup Day, and what better way to celebrate than by upgrading your various storage options on the cheap! If you aren't too fussy about going back one generation of Samsung internal SSDs, then you can pick up the 860 EVO 1TB at 45% off today on Amazon; normally costing $199.99 you can pick it up for just $109.99, a savings of $90. The drive boasts sequential read speeds of up to 550 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 520 MB/s.
The current-gen Samsung SSD 870 EVO 2TB is also being discounted at a slightly lesser 16% for $209.99, which is $40 off its usual $249.99 price on Amazon. The drive boasts slightly better sequential read speeds of up to 560 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 530 MB/s. Other sizes are also available at less or no discount, but that's unsurprising given that this drive first became available only two months ago.
If you're after an NVMe drive upgrade, you can pick up the 500GB Samsung 970 EVO NVMe M.2 SSD at 25% off today for $74.99, that's $25 off its usual $99.99 price. The 1TB version also has a slightly lesser discount of 19% at $144.99, which is a savings of $35 on the usual $179.99 list price.
