The best Prime Day SSD and HDD deals 2022

Top offers on the fastest PC and PS5 storage upgrades.

Amazon's mid-season shopping holiday enters its improbable second and final day, Wednesday the 13th of July. This is your last chance to buy new SSDs or hard drives at unprecedente discounts until Black Friday in November, so it's well worth having a look at what we've rounded up.

These deals include many of the big names - Samsung, WD and Kingston - but also some brands that you may not be familiar with that still offer reliable performance, like XPG, PNY or Sabrent. For each drive, we recommend checking reviews, or consulting our roundup of the best gaming SSDs for our latest recommendations and more information on each option.

With that intro out of the way, let's move directly to the deals!
