Even though the day has passed, Black Friday PS5 SSD deals are still available and going right now. This weekend is still a perfect time to round out your PS5 setup with some extra storage – or even prepare yourself fully for when you do get your console. There has been keen interest in internal NVMe SSDs this year due to Sony opening up the storage slot for folks to insert their own solutions, but don’t forget about external SSDs and hard drives which still certainly have value and a place by our PS5s.

In terms of internals, remember that those M.2 SSDs do have to meet Sony’s requirements – and all of the ones we have found deals on are compatible and work. Though for some you might need to add your own heatsink – which is a perfectly legitimate approach. Your external options are still your classic plug-and-go units, and with the PS5s new super-fast USB ports, you’ll be off and away easily and speedily. Whatever you’re looking for the Black Friday PS5 SSD deals that are still available are perfect if you’re looking for storage solutions this weekend.

We’ve scouted the best deals on all kinds of drives, and the Samsung 980 Pro, which is just $199.99 at Amazon after a $50 discount (opens in new tab), is a clear standout. Samsung is one of the most reliable SSD makers, and this spacious 1TB model comes with its own heatsink. With a little more effort, you can make this staggeringly cheap Seagate FireCuda 530 work just fine, and it’s just $120 at Amazon (opens in new tab) (with no heatsink, though). 

For anyone in the US on the hunt for an external PS5 SSD, might we suggest SanDisk’s Extreme Portable SSD, which is just $119.99 (opens in new tab) right now after a massive 52% discount. There’s also the WD BLACK P50 with $60 off at $189.99 (opens in new tab), despite offering the highest transfer and read speeds of the external PS5 SSDs.

For UK storage seekers, we’ve found top deals on both external and internal PS5 SSDs – although internal options do seem to be becoming rarer and rarer; though this could be resolved with retailers making more stock available at the drop of a hat. However, the WD BLACK SN850 with no heatsink is still just £119.98 (opens in new tab) (and selling out fast), and the Crucial X6 1TB portable SSD is just £64.99 (opens in new tab).

In summary, a terrific selection of Black Friday PS5 SSD deals are still available and your options remain excellent. We’ll be keeping this page updated regularly as we trundle toward Cyber Monday too, so keep checking back if you’re after a specific unit.

Samsung 980 PRO SSD w/ Heatsink | 1TB | $250 $199.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $50 – This is the deal a lot of folks would have been looking for: save a chunk of the wild Samsung 980 Pro SSD that has its brand-new heatsink! This will not hang around quickly.

PNY XLR8 CS3140 | 1TB | $230 $159.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $70 – Now, first things first: this is an SSD with no heatsink. There is a version that comes with one but it won’t fit into the PS5’s SSD bay. So, if you can source a DIY heatsink, then you’re golden. Particularly so as this is the lowest ever price for this SSD.

View Deal (opens in new tab) (opens in new tab)

ADATA SE800 | 1TB | $175 $99.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $75 – This is a great deal on 1TBs worth of rugged, hard-wearing, and pocket-sized SSD storage. As far as we can tell right now, this is the drive’s lowest ever price and so represents excellent value for money.

WD SN850 SSD | 1TB with Heatsink | $269.99 $249.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Save $20A solid little discount for the highly-sough after PS5 SSD. The non-Heatsink 1TB is also heavily reduced, down to $149.99 (opens in new tab) (from $230) if you have a DIY heatsink solution to hand.

Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus | 1TB w/heatsink | $190 $179.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $10 – A modest saving of 5% but this is a great deal because this is a great SSD and heatsink combo. The heatsink actually replaces the entire PS5 SSD slot’s lid and creates a new seal, as well as being in contact with the SSD within. It’s a great solution and the SSD is a a proper beast too.

ADATA XPG GAMMIX S70 BLADE SSD | 1TB | $129.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $30 – This SSD has been incredibly popular in the UK as its bang-to-buck value ratio has been extraordinary. In the US, right now, this is probably the lowest price for a high-quality PS5 SSD that comes with its own heatsink. Looks to be its lowest ever price too.

Seagate Firecuda 530 | 1TB | $255 $189.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $65 – This will be in hot demand this year, but it’s important to note that this is not the heatsink variant so you’ll have to sort that bit out yourself – but you are getting one of the best SSDs for PS5 for less here (it is out of stock but you can still order to take advantage of the price right now).

Seagate FireCuda 530 | 1TB w/Heatsink | $275 $239.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $35 – If you are set on this model with the heatsink – and that’s fair enough – then this price is still good in the overall scheme of things. It’s the lowest ever price for this model and you’re getting peace of mind due to its premium quality too. An investment, but a worthy one.

addlink AddGame A95 | 1TB w/Heatsink | $197 $181.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $15 – Only a small discount, but one that’s still welcome in these days of fierce competition for PS5 SSDs. Another welcome option. And while you won’t see it, the heatsink does look pretty cool, right.

Gigabyte Aorus 7000s | 1TB | w/Heatsink | $229 $189.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $40 – Representing some serious before-Black Friday value, and coming with its own heatsink, the Aorus 7000s for this price is a great PS5 deal. With PS5 SSDs likely be in seriously high demand this year, bagging one early to ensure you have yours done is a very valid approach, and getting money off in the process is just a win-win.

Silicon Power US70 | 1TB | $145 $124.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $20 – This is a neat little saving off of one of the most underrated SSDs you could get for your PS5. While technically its speeds aren’t quite up to Sony’s scratch, we’ve tested this and it performs very well indeed! It’s coming back into stock soon, but you can still place your order, and it’s the lowest ever price. Nice.

WD BLACK P50 SSD | 1TB | $250 $189.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Save $60One of the best and most popular external PS5 SSDs. And for good reason: its performance is awesome, it’s strong and robust, has Western Digital pedigree, and it’ll future-proof you for a while. The massive 2TB model is down to just $289.99 (opens in new tab) right now which is a ridiculous price.

Crucial X6 external SSD | 1TB | $130 $79.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $50 – Two whole terabytes of quality, fast, and reliable storage from a known brand like Crucial is a great proposition in the first place – getting £100 off makes it a no-brainer! An amazing price for this great console SSD.
The 1TB model is also discounted to £64.99 (opens in new tab) (from £115.19).

SanDisk Professional G-Drive | 2TB | $400 $289.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $162 – This is a quite the saving that brings this SSD down to almost its lowest ever price. If you’ve been hunting around for a bit of external SSD storage, and one that can take a beating to give you peace of mind, then this ultra-rugged SanDisk one is a great shout. However, keep an eye on it, because it was down to $237 earlier today.

SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD | 1TB | $240 $119.99 at Best Buy (opens in new tab)
Save $120 – This is an incredible saving off the list price, but we know the ‘real’ price hasn’t been that $240 mark for a bit. But still! This is an excellent price on an external PS5 SSD and it’s robust as heck which provides great peace of mind.

WD My Passport HDD | 5TB | $150 $99.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $30 – Forever one of our absolute favourite HDDS to partner with a console. This is such an easy drive to recommend with it being so capacious, reliable, and value-busting. This is its third-lowest price ever too so it’s great value.

Seagate Game Drive 4TB | HDD | $150 $99.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Save $50 – Away from the more glamorous world of the SSDs, it is very much worth noting that there are a few decent HDD options still knocking around. These represent great bang for buck value, particularly when they make great places to store and play your PS5 libraries on and from. This is also officially licensed which brings peace of mind, and nearly its lowest ever price.

WD BLACK P10 | 5TB | $150 $109.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

How to choose the right PS5 SSD for you

Given the enormous, gigantic spread of the SSD market and the sheer number of products that span it, we feel comfortable saying that there definitely will be something for everyone in this year’s Black Friday PS5 SSD deals. However, the popular models are popular for a reason, and the latest kids on the block will be highly sought after too. As a result, there will be a handful of top models, both internal and externals, to look out for in particular.

The internal PS5 SSD market is likely to be extremely active this year after the PS5’s SSD bay got unlocked by Sony. Newer internal drives such as the WD SN850, Seagate’s FireCuda 530, and Gigabyte’s AORUS 7000s are good candidates for first, big price cuts. Given there are variants of these drives that come with their own heatsinks, too, these SSDs are likely to be very popular with any deep and meaningful cuts. For example, the SN850 1TB with heatsink has only seen a $30 or so price drop over the course of its entire life span at Amazon, and the FireCuda 530 has only seen a tiny $15-20 fluctuation in its short time on the shelves – expect these to see some downward action.

The Samsung 980 PRO 1TB is a great bet for a lowest ever price in this year’s Black Friday PS5 SSD deals – across all of its capacities. It’s been on the scene for a bit longer and has already seen its ‘normal’ price settle at a lower limit. Its current lowest price is $179.99 (opens in new tab), a decent drop from the $230 starting point but given its age on the market, we wouldn’t be surprised to see this hit the $150 mark this year. (You will need your own heatsink with this model though – remember that.)

Whatever internal model you have your eyes on, remember it will still have to meet Sony’s criteria and recommended specs. Here they are again for convenience:

  • PCIe Gen4 interface
  • 250GB – 4TB capacity
  • 5,500MB/s read speed or faster
  • 22mm width (do not go for 25mm units)
  • Heatsink required (built-in or DIY)

WD Black P10

When it comes to the external models, the perenially popular Samsung T5 is worth keeping an eye on. While it, too, has been out for a while and its regular price point is decent, it always receives price cuts every Black Friday. The WD P10 SSD (1TB) is also one we’d keep a close eye on. Its lowest ever price has only been to the $179.99 mark – a price it’s currently near ($199.99) – we think this would be a great candidate to smash its lowest ever price, or at least match it.

And remember, there’ll be great discounts off loads of PS5 external HDDs too: from long-time favourites like WD’s My Passport to Seagate’s licensed hard drive companions for PS4 and Xbox One, and from value busting drives like Toshiba’s Canvio Advance range to premium, large-scale expansions like Seagate’s desktop big boys.

If, perhaps, you’d rather wait for the internal SSD prices to come crashing down (hopefully) during the sales, but do want an external PS5 SSD or hard drive to offer some instant storage then below are some of the best and lowest prices on a bunch.
