Update: Prime Day 2021 is done and dusted, so the deals below are no longer valid. Check out our ZDNet Recommends hub for a better look at the latest deals available -- including roundups of the best products for businesses and professionals.
The Prime Day shopping event has arrived and now could be the perfect time to refresh your existing digital storage solutions.
Every year, vendors offer flash deals and sales on storage solutions including hard disk drive (HDD) hardware for upgrading your tower and traditional PCs to Solid State Drives (SSD), a more modern and reliable storage option.
To make the hunt for storage shopping easier, ZDNet has compiled a list of the best bargains we find on Amazon during and after the sales event. There are some continuing sales, and while discounts aren't as high as during the event -- if the last few years are any guide -- some products will still be a steal.
Our top picks will be updated throughout the event, so check back for more of the best deals.
