A truly incredible deal for gamers and video editors looking for fast internal storage, this near 1TB SSD (yes, SSD!) is currently going for $187.99 on Newegg’s eBay storefront.
About the Deal
There are a couple of things to note. Firstly, this is not a top-of-the-line SSD, so don’t expect market leading performance. However, it does offer decent performance and reliability at an amazing price. The interface is SATA III so it’s suitable for older configurations and doesn’t require the newer interfaces.
It has received a favorable review from major tech site Anandtech and still comes with a three-year manufacturer’s warranty just in case something does go wrong. Among the positives, Anandtech mentioned that it showed surprisingly little performance degradation when it reaches capacity – if you ever manage to put that much stuff on it!
Keep in mind that these drives are not only for PCs. PlayStation 4s can also be upgraded with an SSD relatively painlessly, as demonstrated here for a huge performance boost, especially in games that have longer loading screens.
If you’re feeling particularly handy, you can also turn the SSD into a very useful, very fast portable device. This would be especially useful for video editors who require a large and cheap scratch drive, or photographers who need to carry around high volumes of high resolution images.
Finally, this is an extremely steep discount and the cheapest deal for a 1TB SSD you’re likely to find, so stock will disappear quickly. There’s also a limit of one piece per customer, and you order will be cancelled if you try to order more!
About Newegg’s eBay Storefront
The Newegg eBay storefront is a fantastic place to look for special deals that won’t be available on the main website or in-store. They offer free shipping and returns on all sales, however this is not one for international customers as they will not ship outside of the United States.

The SSDs mentioned in this post aren’t the only special deals on offer there at the moment. There are great deals on high-end graphics cards, mid-range laptops and surround sound systems.
