Corsair has a strong history of creating premium performance parts for PCs, and they’re using that experience and expertise to create the PS5 SSD. According to Corsair, the add on offers a sequential read speed of up to 7,100 MB per second. The sequential write speed clocks in at 6,800 MB per second. Those higher speeds are in part due to the heatsink of the SSD. And then there’s the use of high-density 3D TLC NAND and Dynamic SLC NAND cache, which help to boost the SSD’s lifespan and durability.

Perhaps even more impressive is that you can land a 500GB version for just $99.99—much lower than the competition. There are other versions available as well, starting with a 1TB version for $169.99 and a 2TB version for $399.99. You can also pick up a 4TB version for a much steeper price of $784. Plus, harking back to Corsair’s PC heritage, you can use the SSD for your PC as long as its motherboard has an M.2 slot. That added versatility should be the final nail in your decision to buy the Corsair SSD.
