Even though the Cyber Monday PS5 SSD deals have officially ended, one of the best of them remains - in a form. Right now you can get the Samsung 980 PRO heatsink model for just $219.99 at Amazon and Best Buy. That's $30 off an SSD that only launched in October. This deal was marginally better during the sales weekend, with the price going to $199.99, but this is still a great discount on one of the best PS5 SSDs you can buy.

The long-awaited PS5 SSD has Samsung's own heatsink which means you don't have to source or fit your own and can jump right to installation, which should be without hassle. The Samsung 980 has quickly become a popular choice in terms of PS5 SSDs, so a ready-to-go version is great for peace of mind - and having a $30 discount already is really excellent. 

Stock seems to be holding well so far for this Samsung 980 PRO deal despite the price cuts - though at Amazon there will be a delay in shopping so that's something to be aware of. The 980 PRO has been with us for a little while now and PC users are well aware of the impact it can have, and the performance it offers, but this perfect-for-PS5 version only became available around a month ago which makes it an even more attractive deal.

Samsung is one of the top names when it comes to storage expansion, so you know that you're getting a great product here. It's also high up on our lists of the tried-and-tested best SSD for gaming and best PS5 SSD too, so we can personally assure you you're making a great choice with this deal.

Only two left in stock! At long last, the much-coveted Samsung 980 PRO with its brand new heatsink is finally - finally - available in the UK. This is a pretty keen price given it's only just become available and, for comparison, the lowest ever price on the SN850 was around £170 - as a result, this is a good deal for something so premium. It's also available at Amazon but for a heftier investment of around £270.

If you're confident enough to add your own heatsink separately, then there are also deals to be had on the standard edition Samsung 980 PRO. The whopping 2TB Samsung 980 PRO 2TB SSD is $349.99 right now at Best Buy, which is significantly ($130!) cheaper than the 2TB version with the built-in heatsink. For those on a tighter budget, the Samsung 980 PRO 500GB SSD for $109.99 is definitely worth considering.
