Altatac via Rakuten offers the Samsung 850 EVO 500GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD for $134.99 shipped when code SAVE15 has been applied at checkout. In order to take advantage of the discount you’ll need to be logged into a Rakuten account, but if you don’t have one it’s free to sign up. That’s good for a $25 discount from the regular going rate at Amazon, is the lowest we’ve seen there since 2016 and the best currently available. For comparison, it still goes for $180 at Best Buy. Rated 4.8/5 stars from over 17,700 shoppers.

Swapping out your computer’s hard drive with an SSD offers a number of perks. From snappy boot-up times to quick data transfers, adding in Samsung’s 500GB SSD will breath new life into your aging machine. I just picked up an older Mac Pro, and adding in an SSD made such an all-around noticeable difference.
