If you’re running out of space on your PS5–it’s surprisingly easy to fill up the drive–you may want to consider picking up an internal SSD. You can quickly install a compatible SSD and avoid the pesky problem of constantly deleting and redownloading games. Right now, there’s a great deal on the stellar Samsung 980 Pro 1TB NVMe SSD at Amazon. You can grab the SSD for only $110. Since the PS5 actually only has 667GB of usable space, you’re more than doubling your total storage by installing the 1TB 980 Pro.

$110 (was $230)
This version of the 980 Pro was developed specifically with the PS5 in mind, as it already has the required heatsink attached. However, if you already have a heatsink, you can save $10 by purchasing the original 980 Pro without a heatsink. Fastening the SSD to the heatsink is a fast and simple process.
The PS5 requires a fairly high-end SSD with fast speeds, and the Samsung 980 Pro M.2 NVMe SSD ticks all the right boxes. When installed properly, you’ll experience speeds that are virtually indistinguishable from the console’s built-in SSD. And since it’s manufactured by Samsung, you’ll know that you’re getting a reliable drive that’s built to last.
