There’s still time to pick up a new NVMe SSD for your PS5, but if you’re also looking for NVMe SSDs for your PC, then Best Buy has some great deals on a few of them right now.
Right off the bat, let’s be clear that none of the NVMe SSD options in these Best Buy deals will work for the PS5. All four are PCIe Gen3. And Sony requires that to use one in the PS5 they be PCIe Gen4. So if you’re looking for SSDs for that purpose, you can check out our list for them.
But if it’s a PC NVMe SSD you need, one of these four might suit those needs quite well. And all of them are under $100 so, quite a steal really.
You’ve got an option from SanDisk, an option from Crucial, an option from Western Digital, and a second option from Crucial. The two best deals out of the four are the one from SanDisk, and the one from Western Digital. At least in terms of savings. As both of those normally retail for double what they are on this sale. Specifically, the SanDisk – Ultra 1TB PCIe Gen3 NVMe SSD is usually $229.99. But at the moment Best Buy has it for just $$79.99. A savings of $150.
If you prefer Western Digital, then you can pick up the WD Blue SN550 1TB PCIe Gen3 NVMe SSD for $84.99 instead of its normal price of $199.99.
As for the two drives from Crucial, there’s the p2 1TB PCIe Gen3 NVMe SSD for $83.99 down from $109.99. And the P5 1TB PCIe Gen3 NVMe SSD for $89.99 instead of $119.99. The main difference between these two is the sequential read speeds. On the P2 you get up to 2300MB/s. While on the P5 you’ll get up to 3400MB/s.
Worth noting is that while you get the most savings on the SSDs from WD and SanDisk, their sequential read speeds are both less than the Crucial P5.
