Storage might not be the most glamorous part of the tech world, but we all need it to some extent and if you’re looking for an SSD then Black Friday deals will save you money.
SSD stands for solid state drive and is the modern form of storage you’ll find in almost any piece of tech. They come in lots of shapes and sizes, including external/portable and internal – the latter primarily being SATA or NVMe.
What you need will depend on your needs; are you building a new gaming rig or are you a photographer looking to carry your portfolio around with you.
There’s lots to consider including capacity, speed, encryption and more so think about all of this before you make a purchase. If you need more advice, head to our best SSDs and best portable hard drives and SSDs chart charts, where you can also see which models we recommend.
Black Friday takes place on 25 November, but deals are available for the whole month, and we’ve combed through many online retailer sales to find the best deals in the US and UK.
We’re also rounding up all the best tech for Black Friday so there are countless bargains to be had far beyond SSDs.
