You really don't want to miss these Cyber Monday PS5 SSD deals as these prices are lower than they've ever been on some of the best PS5 SSD options around. While some deals might stick around for a bit longer after today we think a lot of the prices are going to shoot back up at midnight as Cyber Monday draws to a close. You might be waiting until after Christmas now to get a better discount.

Picking up a cheap PS5 SSD in the Cyber Monday PS5 deals can save you a lot of money. This is an excellent turn of events as just a few weeks ago a lot of the best devices had sold out and we could only find scalper listings. Be prepared to pay quite a lot more if you want a PS5 SSD with a pre-installed heatsink on most brands - pro tip, buy one separately for much less (links below). We're constantly testing new PS5-compatible SSDs, so we'll let you know which ones are available too beyond the old favorites likes the Samsung 980 Pro, WD SN850 Black, and the FireCuda 530.

If you're going to have a look around yourself, we've listed some retailers further down this page that we're constantly checking for Cyber Monday PS5 SSD deals. Be careful, though; you'll want to make sure the specs of the SSD meet Sony's particular requirements. We'll run through those on this page, too. First up, you can find our favorite PS5 SSD deals of the day directly below along with recommendations for relevant heatsinks to attach.

What stores will have Cyber Monday PS5 deals?

When shopping for a PS5 SSD on Cyber Monday, the stores below will be your best bet. They've had regular stock of them as PC components for a while and have a strong track record. As big-brand stores, they'll have solid chances of getting the most popular drives back in stock when they do sell out. Be mindful of MSRPs, though, as third-party sellers are allowed on most of these stores and won't be afraid to jack up the prices. And with PS5 SSDs being expensive enough to begin with, you shouldn't pay anything extra. Look out for "sponsored" slots at the top of retailer search listings as they're often not compatible matches.

What requirements are there for a PS5 SSD

This isn't like the old days of just buying a PlayStation memory card. You'll have to be mindful of the following spec when picking up an SSD for your PS5 on Cyber Monday, as many models out there are only for a PC. Don't forget, some SSDs do not come with a heatsink built-in, and we severely recommend you do indeed attach one (it's very easy), or you risk the SSD overheating and burning out in your PS5. We've dropped a few links below for some PS5-compatible heatsinks to save you the hassle of measuring all the specs.

  • Interface: PCIe Gen4 M.2 NVME
  • Capacity: 250GB - 4TB capacity
  • Read speed: 5,500MB/s or faster
  • Form factors: 2230, 2242, 2260, 2280, 22110
  • Width: up to 25mm (with heatsink)
  • Length: up to 110mm (with heatsink)
  • Thickness: up to 11.25mm (with heatsink)
  • Heatsink: built-in or manually added as a separate purchase

The following PS5 compatible heatsinks are usually priced around $15-$20 and are often available in red, black, or silver - not that you'll be able to see it once you close the PS5 up again. They're double-sided, which adds a tiny bit extra to the price over the dirt-cheap models, but it's more than worth it to protect your new PS5 SSD. Pro tip: the version of SSDs with a heatsink built-in already are often a lot more expensive, so adding your own manually is a great way to save up to $40 sometimes!
