Crucial makes some of the most reliable storage drives on the planet, and right now Amazon has a discount on the Crucial 4TB P3 Plus SSD. This is an M.2 NVMe SSD and it’s currently on sale for $179.99. The regular price on this drive is typically around $214-$215 so you’re saving about $35-$36 or about 16%.
The Crucial P3 Plus is a Gen4 drive so it’s faster than Gen3 and ultimately will translate to faster boot-up times for your PC if this is the drive you have the OS installed on. It’ll also ensure you get faster load times in games. Which can be a particularly big pain point for gamers. With read speeds up to 5,000MB/s it’s hard not to consider this drive. It’s certainly not the fastest Gen4 NVMe SSD on the market. But it is plenty fast and it’s an affordable option that you can rely on for years to come.
I’ve been using Crucial drives in my own PC for more than a few years now and I have yet to need to replace them. This is also a backwards-compatible drive. So even if you only have a PCIe Gen3 motherboard, you can still use this P3 Plus SSD and it’ll work just fine. It just won’t be quite as fast as if you had a Gen4 board to slot it into.
Again though, the big takeaway here is the value for money. For $180 you’re getting 4TB storage space and pretty good speeds. Comparing that to other Gen4 NVMe SSD options, 4TB is going to cost you at least $100 more. You can pick up the Crucial 4TB P3 Plus NVMe SSD at Amazon.
