Some of the best PS5 SSD deals we've ever seen are still going this week and it's never been cheaper to get one of the very best SSDs for PS5 into your life.

Cutting to the chase, the first is a PS5 SSD deal that everyone has been keeping their eye on since it launched last October. The Samsung 980 PRO 1TB SSD with its own heatsink is at a record low price at $189.99 (was $250) at Amazon. We only saw this during Black Friday last year for a few days. Very tempting!

The choice of Mark Cerny, PS5 Architect, is next, with the WD BLACK SN850 1TB SSD (with heatsink) coming down also to its lowest ever price with a massive $90 cut from its MSRP: it can be yours for just $189.99 right now. This means you can get the drive for the best value price point it's ever had, and maximise your bang-to-buck ratio.

If you're looking to shave as much money off a PS5 SSD deal price as possible, however, then you'll want to take note of the Gigabyte Aorus 7000s which is also at a record low price and can be yours for just $169.99 (down from $230). This also comes with its own heatsink and offers exceptional value for money, but also premium performance.

You'll find more information on all these PS5 SSD deals just below, and a few more of the latest prices and deals on PS5 SSDs further down the page as well.
