The PS5 SSD deal everyone has been waiting for is here - save big on the Samsung 980 PRO Heatsink drive

The Black Friday PS5 SSD deals are already making themselves known, and among them we've picked out the one that we've been hotly anticipating for some time: a discount on the Samsung 980 PRO along with its new heatsink – dropping down to just $199.99 at Amazon and Best Buy right now, which is a tidy 20% off or $50 saving.

This particular SSD has long been considered as the cream of the crop, and a priority purchase that players would aim for once the SSD add-on specs for the PS5 were revealed by Sony, and this opinion was solidified further when Samsung announced that they would also produce a version that comes with its own heatsink. Seeing this as part of the Black Friday PS5 SSD deals is a welcome surprise, as the heatsink version itself was only launched a month or so ago, making this discount an even more attractive proposition. We expect demand is going to be strong, so don't delay if you're planning to claim one as it's likely this will be one of the highlights of the Black Friday PS5 deals this year.

There are several reasons to get excited about this deal – Samsung is one of the top names when it comes to storage, so you know you'll be getting a quality and reliable product, and it sits highly on both our best SSD for gaming and best PS5 SSD rundowns. The 980 PRO SSD has never seen a price reduction before, so getting 20% off is an absolute rarity that shouldn't be overlooked, and the included heatsink means that if you're planning on using it to upgrade your PS5 then you can be confident that it's ready to go.

Samsung 980 PRO SSD early Black Friday deals

While we highly recommend the $199 Samsung 980 PRO with built-in heatsink to take any issues of compatibility out of the equation, if you feel confident enough to add you own heatsink separately then there's bigger storage capacity to be had with the Samsung 980 PRO 2TB SSD for $319.99, which is significantly ($130!) cheaper than the 2TB version with it's own built-in heatsink. For those on a tighter budget, the Samsung 980 PRO 500GB SSD for $109.99 is definitely worth considering, though again you'll need to supply and fit your own heatsink for that one.
