Samsung 980 Pro M.2 2TB Gen 4 NVMe SSD for $380, and code SS2AZ9A928 drops the price to $342. This is a significant price drop from the $399 price two months ago.
Only some of the very latest desktop and laptop computers have Gen 4 compatibility. With Gen 4, this SSD will provide the best performing reads and writes available today. Some laptops may have Gen-4 compatibility, but may ship with a Gen-3 SSD.
Our new Thinkpad X1 laptop is Gen-4 compatible, but came with a Gen-3 SSD. We opened the bottom of the laptop and replaced the SSD with this Samsung 980 Pro 2TB, and love the incredibly fast performance boost.
If you want a M.2 SSD but your computer does not support Gen-4, a quality Gen-3 SSD may be a better choice than a Gen-4. For example, a Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2TB uses MLC cells which could give better longevity than the TLC used in the 980 Pro.
For a similar deal, a Kingston NV1 2TB M.2 Gen 3 SSD is available for $170.
