There are plenty of SSD options at every price tier—from basic $36 SATA drives to high-end NVMe M.2 cards with blistering-fast speeds. The latter tends to be fairly expensive, but Newegg currently has a 960GB Samsung model for just $199.99. That’s around $50 less than the typical 1TB NVMe drive, and cheaper than most 1TB SATA SSDs. The Samsung MZ1LV960HCJH (great product name, I know) is aimed at use in servers. It features up to 1GB/s sequential read speeds, and up to 820MB/s sequential writes (both 128KB). Random write performance is a little slower than the average NVMe drive, but it’s still plenty fast for everyday use. The drive also features “Enterprise-grade power loss protection,” so you’re less likely to lose data in the event of an unexpected shutdown. You can buy the SSD from Newegg here. It uses the longer M.2 22110 form factor, so you might want to double-check that it will fit in your PC before buying.
