Eight Terabytes: Phwoar! You’ll never have to worry about reinstalling Warzone. Samsung’s SSDs are some of the best on the market, with high build quality with excellent write speeds (as you can read about in our guide to the best gaming SSDs)—their only downside is the price.

This Black Friday deal on the Samsung 870 QVO SATA III SSD takes care of that, offering $168 off its list price of $849.99 (20% off). It’s about 8 cents per GB if you’re keeping track.

The drive comes with a three-year warranty and AES-256 encryption. The specs list the drive as capable of up to 560/530 Mbps of sequential read/write throughput and 98,000/88,000 random read/write IOPS. It doesn’t come with any accessories, though Samsung software support (Magician and Migration, available on the company’s site) that helps you monitor, benchmark, firmware updates, and transfer data.

It’s big, it’s bad, and it’s hungry—for your data! With this monster’s 8 terabytes of storage you probably won’t need another SSD again, while Samsung’s drives are known for their high build quality and good write speeds—usually the only con is the price, with which it costs 20. % discount helps a lot.

One of the best things about the Samsung 870 QVO is the case, which is a bit strange to say about an SSD but let’s roll with it. It comes in a 2.5″ by 7mm SATA form factor with an all-metal casing, which feels great compared to most SSDs and their plastic cases.

However one thing worth noting about this drive is that it includes QLC NAND. This is slightly different from your more standard TLC or MLC NAND found in more performing drives. The major compromise with QLC is that it offers high efficiencies in exchange for raw speed. Essentially, once the QLC NAND is up to date, this drive will drop significantly in speed. To get over it, Samsung opts to stick some SLC NAND in the drive, which means you won’t feel the effects of that slow QLC unless you try and move a lot at once will do.
