Early deal of the week: a 1TB Adata SU800 SSD for $226

SSDs have been getting more expensive of late, thanks to media supply shortages as manufacturers shift production to 2D and 3D TLC NAND. Even so, there are still deals to be had from time to time, and we're especially fond of deals on large SSDs for our extensive Steam libraries.

Adata's SU800 may have demonstrated a couple wrinkles in our review, but it's generally a speedy performer at a reasonable price. Today, Newegg is offering one of the lowest prices we've seen on the SU800 (and on a 1TB SSD in general). The e-tailer is blowing out the drive for $239.99 as a Shell Shocker deal, and promo code EMCSRFRD2 knocks another $15 off that price for a $225.99 bottom line. That works out to a very respectable 22 cents per gigabyte. If you've found yourself in need of a big chunk of solid-state storage of late, be sure to give this deal a look.

    I remember when Apple charged that much to swap a 500GB HDD with a 128GB SSD. I really like this deal.

      They still do on iMacs, except they are using 256GB SSDs for $200 extra now.

    I got a 960GB SanDisk Ultra II for $200 in 2015. It’d sure be nice to get this NAND shortage over with.

      I’m still rocking my Mushkin 1TB from almost 2 years ago that cost 200$ as well. Now1TB os the same storage or slower cost 25% more even though they have denser and smaller nodes to work with now.

      Agreed- paid less than that on Prime Day, and haven’t seen them that cheap since.
