Here's the best PS5 SSD with heatsink to buy right now

When Sony first announced the list of requirements that had to be met in order to find a suitable PS5 SSD upgrade, it gave us all a bit of a headache. Why couldn’t it be a straightforward process like with the Xbox Series X and its Seagate Storage Expansion Card? But worry no more. A swift solution is to buy a PS5 SSD with heatsink as you’ll just need to plug it into your console. Thankfully, we have exactly what you need right here.

Those in the UK can also find it available to order for £144.55 at Amazon UK as well. You’ll just need to apply the 18% off voucher code by ticking the box and that’s the price you’ll see at the checkout.

1TB Samsung 980 Pro: $229.99 $189.99 at Amazon Save £24 – When it comes to quality and performance in SSDs, Samsung is usually at the top of the pile. The Samsung 980 Pro is no different and is a great pick if you’re after a PS5 SSD from what many would consider the best name in the business. The only niggle is the need to attach your own heatsink. This will add about another $15 to the cost and a few minutes for install time.

1TB Crucial P5 Plus: $179.99 at Amazon The brand new Crucial P5 Plus is slightly slower than the Samsung 980 Pro above, but it’s also a cheaper option. It’s still well above the 5500Mb/s read speed requirement listed by Sony, so it won’t be massively noticeable when it comes to playing PS5 games. Just remember, you’ll need to add the cost of a $15 heatsink on top as this doesn’t include one.

We’ve got straight to the buying advice right here. For a more in-depth breakdown there’s a look at what makes the best PS5 SSD and a guide on how to install a PS5 SSD should you need all the nitty-gritty information.

Even more PS5 SSD deals

With one of these bought, no longer will you have to struggle with the extremely limited storage in Sony’s latest console. Long gone are the day of each new release requiring the difficult decision of which other game to lose in its place when you just want everything to be able to live together happily without the fear of being kicked out. 

But what if the current prices for a PS5 SSD with heatsink upgrade still scare you off a bit? Yeah, don’t blame you there. If that’s the case, we are following every cheap PS5 SSD deal that pops up on the web, so give that page a bookmark and check in regularly for all the top offers. Or, hold fire until November when we should see some good PS5 SSD Black Friday deals.
