Solid State Drives (SSD) are one of the easiest ways to improve a computers performance, though usually they are very pricey. Another factor when buying the high-speed drives is that they usually hold less information, when compared to the equally-priced traditional internal drives. Those traditional drives just simply can’t match the speed of an SSD, and the new internal drive is quickly becoming the standard in today’s laptops.
The space issue is becoming less and less of a problem, thanks in large part to the growing Cloud Storage market, and SSD drives offer such a dramatic improvement that many people are changing over the moment they can.
As I mentioned earlier they are costly, but if you shop at the right times, and pick up a drive on sale, you can find some pretty terrific options online. For a limited time Amazon is offering up to 20% off select SSD on its website, and there are some choice components available at the moment.
The list is a little large to name off all of the selections, but there are a few standouts. The Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5-Inch SATA III normally goes for $249.99 and has been cutdown to $174.99 during the promotion. If you don’t need that much storage, you can even pick up the Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 120GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Single Unit for just $99. Even lower than that, you can pick up the Kingston Digital 120GB SSDNow V300 SATA 3 for only $75. If you are looking for power and speed, the Samsung Electronics 840 Pro Series was marked down as well, now $214 from $269.
It’s an impressive list, and you can find drives from all shapes and sizes, and operating systems on the markdown list. Odds are the stocks of each device won’t last very long, you can check out all of the prices, sales, sizes and platforms on the official promotional page below.
