Amazon offers the Kingston A400 480GB SSD for $64.99 shipped. You may need to select “480G” to see this price. That’s good for a nearly 20% discount from the going rate and the lowest price we’ve tracked at Amazon. If your computer has seen better days, swapping out the hard drive for an SSD is a simple way to give it a speed boost. This model in particular sports up to 500MBps transfer speeds, an aluminum casing and more. I recently picked up the 120GB model to replace my old Mac Pro’s boot drive. Over 1,000 customers have left a 4.5/5 star rating.

Update 1/10 @ 2:40 PM: Amazon offers the Crucial MX500 500GB 3D NAND 2.5-inch SSD for $64.60 shipped when clipping the on-page coupon. That’s good for a $10 discount from the going rate and is $0.50 under the Amazon all-time low. Rated 4.6/5 stars from over 1,800 customers.

Replacing an HDD in your computer? For $25.50 you can turn it into USB-C storage for you Mac thanks to this enclosure. And if you’d like to score some additional savings and opt for a less well-known brand, Silicon Power’s 480GB SSD is still on sale for $55.
