Seagate 8TB External HDD about $40 off ($165 vs $220) – Get your CHIA plots on!

Samsung 2TB 980 PRO NVMe drive is 27% off ($313 vs $430) – note, rated at 600 TBW which is a speed trade off from the previous gen)

Western Digital 1TB NVMe drive (I use the same ones in my primary production machine – not recommended for high write-IO servers or CHIA plotting per se (600 TBW) but these are amazing for the price – $172 vs $203)

Crucial MX500 2 TB SSD ($59 off at $171)

Crucial P5 1TB NVMe (48% off – $91 vs $174) – 600 TBW

This HUGE 4TB NVMe from PNY is 21% off at $590. Not as fast as the 980 PRO or the WD Black, but keep in mind it only supports 900 TBW. Great for games, video editing and such but not for heavy writes for sure.
