Samsung last month launched an enhanced version of its popular 970 EVO NVMe PCIe SSD (our favorite enthusiast SSD) featuring new V-NAND and optimized firmware. Naturally, that means older models need to be moved out and what better way to do that than a sale?
All capacities of Samsung’s standard 970 EVO are on sale over at Amazon for a limited time. The biggest discounts can be had on the 250GB and 500GB drives which are marked down 20 percent from their regular price of $99.99 and $149.99, respectively (now just $79.99 and $119.99).
If it’s more capacity you need, the 1TB model is down to $247.99 (a 17 percent savings over the usual $299.99 asking price) while the 2TB version can be had for $547.99 (down only nine percent from where it normally sits at $599.99).
Samsung in announcing the aforementioned 970 EVO Plus mentioned MSRPs of $89.99, $129.99 and $249.99 for 250GB, 500GB and 1TB models, respectively, and said they were launching immediately. It’s now more than two weeks later, availability is scarce and pricing is higher than initially advertised.
