Just a few months ago, the lightning-fast NVMe SSD with 1TB of storage capacity was still costing approximately US$100, so Amazon’s current offer for the highly coveted Samsung 980 Pro is quite notable.
The prices of the majority of storage products geared toward consumers continue to decline, which is frustrating for the SSD business. Although the South Korean company’s former flagship M.2 module has now sunk to its lowest price ever on Amazon, the 1TB edition of the Samsung 980 Pro serves as the ideal illustration of the PCIe 4.0 SSD market’s quick depreciation.
In this instance, the popular SSD sale from February is being replaced with a deal from the Seattle-based e-commerce leader, which is offering the Samsung 980 Pro 1TB edition for US$75 with free shipping. The Samsung 980 Pro has had multiple successive price reductions over the past few months, and the trend may continue and result in significantly lower costs in the near future, as Camelcamelcamel’s pricing tracker expertly depicts.

With sequential read and write speeds of up to 7,000 MB/s and 5,100 MB/s, respectively, the Samsung 980 Pro is still a blisteringly fast PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD. Despite the drive’s 600 TBW official endurance rating, prospective users should update the firmware on their brand-new solid-state drive because some out-of-date versions may ostensibly result in premature drive failure in rare circumstances. Thankfully, this storage module also comes with the customary five-year limited manufacturer guarantee. For US$75, it is unquestionably one of the greatest SSD buys currently on the market.
