Deal Alert: The Build A New PC – SATA SSD Edition

By Kelvin Leong - 12 Mar 2021

Deal Alert: The Build A New PC – SATA SSD Edition

The Build A New PC – SATA SSD Edition

Last week we looked at using NVMe SSDs as the primary storage for your new PC and introduced some attractive deals. This week we put our focus on the SATA SSD. It is not as fast as the NVMe SSD, but it is no slouch and their prices are comparable to each other. You may wish to add one or more SATA SSDs to your new PC as secondary storage due to certain reason, such as ran out of NVME slots on your motherboard or as a portable storage that can be easily swapped from one PC to another.

Today we continue our weekly Friday series on the PC component that is a quick and portable storage for your new PC – the SATA SSD.

If you missed any of our previous Deal Alert: The Build A New PC weekly series, you can catch up on them here.
