Amazon is offering the Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB NVMe M.2 PCIe SSD on sale for $99.99 shipped. Down from its $120 going rate, today’s deal is within $2.50 of its all-time low and is the best available. Samsung’s 970 EVO Plus is a great drive for any gaming or content creation computer. With read speeds of up to 3.5GB/s and write of 3.3GB/s, this drive can move a 30GB file in just 10-seconds. When you compare that to a standard SSD with 500MB/s speeds, this drive is five times faster than conventional alternatives. Rated 4.8/5 stars.

If you’re not stuck on Samsung for your SSD choice, WD’s Black SN750 500GB NVMe M.2 PCIe SSD is available for $80 shipped. It has similar read and write speeds to today’s lead NVMe sale, delivering quality performance at a great price. WD’s Black SN750 drive is a great option for higher-end rigs, just like today’s lead deal. You can learn more about it in our announcement coverage.
However, WD’s Blue SN550 500GB NVMe M.2 PCIe SSD can be yours for under $69.50 shipped with the price reflecting at checkout. The extra $10 in savings here comes in the form of slower speeds, as it can only max out at 2.4GB/s. If you’re just gaming though, the speed reduction shouldn’t make a huge difference, and the Blue SN550 is what I went with in my personal gaming rig.
