Amazon Prime Day SSD deals cover everything from the absolute fastest PCIe 4.0 internal drives, to portable SSDs that enable you to transfer massive image or video files in seconds. Now that we’re part way into day two of Prime Day (opens in new tab), it’s likely these deals will start to disappear. You should still be able to find bargains until the end of the week though, so you’ve still got a bit of time to grab yourself an SSD deal.
If you’re still running an old HDD on your gaming rig, for the love of all things silicon, consider upgrading to an SSD during Prime Day. SSDs are faster, more efficient, and way more reliable than those old spinning relics of the past. If your motherboard has the latest PCIe 4.0 interface, expect to find a lot of options for your consideration.
If you’re still on PCIe 3.0, don’t worry. PCIe 4.0 SSDs are backward compatible and will run on your system. While it won’t perform to its full potential, it should tide you over until you’re ready to upgrade your motherboard, et al. If you’re all about saving money, prepare to be tempted by a lot of PCIe 3.0 SSDs on sale.
The only bad thing about SSDs is that higher-capacity drives are pretty expensive. Anything above 2TB can easily cost you around $400. But if you really need one, Prime Day is the time to hit buy, since even those storage beasts aren’t immune to the Prime Day discount.
If portability is more your thing or just looking to increase storage on your gaming console, external SSDs are another big item that’ll have impressive markdowns. You should also know that the prices have been swinging back and forth constantly this deals season, so grab something soon if you spot it cheap as we’re not sure how long that’ll last for.
We’re also rounding up Prime Day gaming laptop deals (opens in new tab) if you’re looking for some portable chops. Or if you’re wanting something that’ll stay put, these Prime Day gaming PC deals (opens in new tab) might need some SSD upgrades. Oh and if you need to complete you setup, check out our Prime Day gaming monitor deals (opens in new tab) for those with a penchant for mobile or big screen playtime.
When does Amazon Prime Day 2022 end?
The official answer is that Prime Day 2022 ends at 11.59pm on Wednesday July 13. But the more complicated answer is that it depends on your time zone. In the US, Amazon Prime Day ends at 11.59pm PDT Wednesday July 13, but that’s actually 2.59am EDT Thursday July 14.
In the UK it’s a more straightforward cut off at 11.59pm BST Wednesday July 13.
But that’s all for Amazon’s own specific deals, and we would expect to see deals from the likes of Newegg and Best Buy hanging around just that little bit longer.
