Q: How much should you spend?
The price of an SSD depends on its rated speeds, capacity, and form factor. 2.5-inch SATA SSDs are considerably less expensive than M.2 NVMe drives, but are often slower and require a place within the PC case for installation. The higher the speeds and capacity of a drive, the more expensive it will be. We’d recommend setting your budget accordingly.
Q: Should you buy an M.2 or 2.5-inch SSD?
The choice between an M.2 NVMe SSD and a 2.5-inch SATA SSD depends entirely on what your PC supports. Most modern motherboards will have at least one M.2 slot, which can take an M.2 SSD. Doing so saves space inside the PC case by removing both the SATA and power cables required by 2.5-inch drives. They’re also considerably fast, but more expensive. Want the highest capacity for the lowest price? Go with a 2.5-inch drive. Want the best performance and save space? M.2 drives are for you.
Q: What makes a good deal?
You will only find SSD deals here that are worth considering. We’ve seen retailers in the past artificially inflate prices of products ahead of discounts to make it seem as though the deal is new. We make sure the discounts we cover here at XDA-Developers are deals we’d consider buying ourselves. You can check prices yourself by using tools such as CamelCamelCamel.
Q: Do you need to be a Prime member to save on Prime Big Deals Day?
Like any other Prime Day sales event, it’s important to consider signing up for Amazon Prime in order to gain access to all the available discounts. A subscription, be it a paid one or a free trial, is required to unlock all the deals Amazon is expected to publish later this year. Those without Prime or an Amazon account may still view all the deals, but you won’t be able to purchase a product at a discounted price.
