Best Cyber Monday SSD and hard drive deals
Samsung 980 1TB SSD: Now $69.88 at Amazon
Though not the cheapest the 980 has been this Black Friday, this 1TB SSD from Samsung has read speeds of up to 3,500 MB/s and write speeds of up to 3,000 MB/s, and comes with a five year warranty. The speedy component is available in 500GB and 1TB versions too.
WD_BLACK 4TB SN850X NVMe SSD: Now $229.99 at Amazon
The distinctive WD Black NVMe SSD series is marketed towards gamers but remains great fit for creatives. It doesn't quite reach the performance heights of its more illustrious rivals, but we'd be silly not to give this 4TB model a thumbs up.
Seagate Portable 5TB hard drive: Now $111.15 from Amazon
TechRadar's favourite external hard drive is now even cheaper.
This is a brilliant price to pay for a vast amount of space, and Seagate's unit also offers free data recovery, extra software subscriptions and a slim, relatively robust chassis.

Samsung’s EVO range of NVMe solid state drives offer some of the fastest speeds on the market, and the 970 Plus is no slouch. This price drop on the largest 2TB model (that isn't billed as a deal, but we still rate it) makes it a truly unmissable deal for PC enthusiasts.
Crucial P2 2TB 2TB SSD was
$100 Now $88 from Amazon

$300 Now $199 at Amazon
Save $100 If you’re looking for a rugged, portable SSD with plenty of storage and fast write speeds, look no further than the SanDisk 4TB Extreme. This deal is even better than the one on the same product in the lead up to Black Friday, so it's definitely worth a second look.

Save $210 Western Digital’s enormous 20TB external hard drive offers plug and play simplicity, a sleek, desktop-friendly design, and support for either PC or Mac.
WD have being fielding discounts across the entire Elements range over the course of Black Friday week and Cyber Weekend, but this is perhaps the steepest we've seen. As an excellent alternative to a dedicated NAS, we can't recommend this enough.
SanDisk SSD PLUS Solid State Drive, 1TB:
$119 $59.99 at Office Depot
Save $60 SanDisk’s 1TB SSD PLUS has been reduced for Cyber Monday by just over half. In terms of terabytes to dollars, this is one of the best value deals of the season so far. With read speeds of 535 MB/s, it’s not the fastest SSD around, but the discount is hard to argue with.
