With some huge PS5 games on the horizon, you might be looking at your console's remaining available storage space in fear. But you don't need to sacrifice anything. Now's a great time for an upgrade as one of the best PS5 SSDs is available for a fantastic low price at Amazon.
You can now pick up the 1TB Samsung 980 Pro for $119.99 (was $149.99). Apart from a very brief drop by an extra $7 back in December, this is a return to the lowest price we've ever seen, making it one of the best PS5 SSD deals available right now.
With this Samsung 980 Pro, you double the available capacity for PS5 games as well as PS4 titles and any backwards-compatible releases from previous console generations. That means you can have more games installed at once and not have to worry about choosing old ones to delete to make space for new releases. It also meets all other requirements laid out by Sony, including a high transfer speed and an attached heatsink to keep it cool in your console.
We also awarded it the full five stars in our Samsung 980 Pro review and this is the exact same SSD just with a heatsink already attached to provide sufficient cooling while it's in your PS5 console.
